Self Care

I recently had the pleasure of talking to a very wise woman about self-care. I told her I was having a hard time believing I even deserved it, because I thought it might be selfish.  I, like most women can think of a million other things to do before I do something for myself. If I were even asked the question what would I do if I could do anything I wanted for myself for one hour in the day I probably couldn't answer the question.

With that said, no need for regrets. Allow me to break it down a bit further, the decisions I[...]

However, I didn't understand what it meant until I was an adult. I guess we sometimes don't understand things until we go through some things. I always wondered why we were supposed to be joyful while going through the fire. Who wants to be joyful while in the fire, nobody. The fire is often a painful place a place we usually can't wait to get out of, we want whatever lesson that needs to be learned to be taught quickly unfortun[...]
