After such a week of heart break
and soul searching...
I am back...
back with even a higher regard for
respect of self
I am very familiar with the need for self care...
for me it's also the need for beautiful spaces...
that celebrate the season
having a wardrobe
I feel good in and confident wearing
accessories that bring me joy to wear
spending much time outside in nature
spending quality time with family
Knowing all of the components of self care
and self nurturing
as I do
I didn't realize
I was still missing some major components
This week has taught me some other things I need to add to my list
of self care
accepting who I actually am today....imperfections and all
accepting my past has shaped who I am today
respect of self-
honoring my own history realizing it has shaped who I am today...
but the most important thing I learned I need to add
glaringly absent from not only my list,
but my life.
In it's place lives a shrill and demanding voice.
I must learn to speak kinder to myself
enjoy my own accomplishments more
stop expecting perfection
respect that I have needs and limitations
give kind validation to myself
instead of demanding it from family members
because I do know
when I add
respect of self
to my list of self care
not only am I happier
the kinder, less demanding and respectful
I am of myself
the kinder, less demanding and respectful I am of others....
as always dear friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
thank you again for all the loving comments and emails this week
they all truly touched my soul
I would also be so happy to hear ways in which
you care for yourself....
