During this virus thing, self-care is going to be EXTREMELY important. I want to see this thread BLOW UP!!!

I have a Catch 22 going on. I'm supposed to stay off the broken foot to let it heal, but I also know that if I'm staying off the foot, all of those years of sedentary life are coming back to haunt me. So last night I walked to the corner & back. It's not miles but it got me off the couch & got me MOVING. This was my Thursday act of self-care!

1. My eyes
2. My new hair cut (6” shorter than last week)
3. My singing voice. Took a weekend trip with my new choir to learn how to sing. Didn’t think I could but I learned a lot. First time in years I did something this big for me and it was a success

Day 1...look at yourself in a mirror. If you have a full length mirror, use it. If not, use what you have!!!

Look in the mirror & find 3 things you LIKE about yourself. Come back here & if you feel comfortable you can share or you can just say DONE.

Ok Girlies~~Over the years many of us have disliked ourselves--possibly even hated ourselves. So the very IDEA of self care is completely alien. Or scary. Or seems somehow wrong or undeserving. And all of that is seriously BS!!! You are a human being & worthy of love and care regardless of your weight. You are beautiful & amazing in someone's eyes. You are someone's daughter, someone's mother, someone's sister, maybe even someone's grandma. And those people may have been the hardest on you & they SAY it's out of love but honestly it's out of fear bc they can't picture what their lives would look like without you!!!

There are VERY basic aspects of self-care and there are more luxurious aspects. Let's use this forum to shore each other up enough to ensure we are doing the BASICs. Then let's move to a place where we embrace that we are indeed worthy of more. And PLEASE join in no matter where you are on this journey. Just remember to be both positive AND kind!!!
