Truthbomb: Self Care is A Divine Responsibility

Self care is one of the singular most important things you can do for yourself. You owe it to yourself to be making YOU a priority every single day. You... yes, you there shaking your head in disbelief. I am speaking to you!

It's easy to neglect ourselves and put our needs on the back burner... but you aren't doing anyone any favors by doing that. In fact, you are doing yourself a terrible disservice. Why? Because in reality, your unhappiness shows. I don't give a shit how much you try to hide it. It seeps out around the edges and it catches you off guard.

I am a parent. I get that it's hard to put yourself first... but the fact that you are a parent is just another reason to dig your heels in and do it. Why? Because you're sending a message to your kids. Take care of you! They will follow suit throughout their lives because they know that it is okay! To some it may seem easy, but it takes a hell of a lot of courage to do just that.

Give yourself a day, an hour... hell, even 30 minutes if that is all you have.

Just because you are taking care of you doesn't mean you have to neglect everyone else or that you will be. The happier you are the happier they will be.

Now, who is also a priority?

YOU! That's who.
