Song: God Morning by Natalie Lauren “Today I will show up for myself”
You’ve got to take care of YOU because no one else will. I didn’t understand this in my 20s. I remember thinking “I can’t put me first, because if I do that then I am selfish and if I am selfish then no one will want to deal with me.” I can’t even remember where this thought came from, but I am pretty sure it stemmed from childhood. I’ve been told that I have ALWAYS been the girl who wanted to please everybody. I never wanted to be disliked. I never wanted anyone to be upset with me. ALWAYS going overboard to please the next person. I did this so much that it drained me… so much so that I was depleted ANDDDDD it doesn’t hurt that I am an empath. Now that I am 33, I have learned that it is inevitable that I take care of me. Self is Inevitable. What does that look like? What does self-care look like? Self care is the care of self. Showing up for yourself. Not neglecting you. Not neglecting your thoughts, fears , truth, etc. Self Care Regimens that I LOVE
CRY IT OUT!!! Stressed? Happy? Sad? Angry? Sometimes self care is a long, good ugly, soul cleansing cry. (What you mean Jas?) Crying releases so much. It literally feels like the weight of the world being lifted from you. Its also a mini detox. You are releasing bad toxins and bad energy. Own that moment, be in it, OWN whatever emotion you are feeling at the time and release it.
DANCE IT OUT!!!!!!!!!! One of my favorite shows is Greys Anatomy (Mark Sloan is my BESTIE) Meredith had a thing where when life got overwhelming, her and her best friend Christina would dance it out! Put on your favorite song and dance it out. Twerk it Out! (Listen I am a HUGE twerking advocate mmkay!!) Just get moving! This too is a release and you’ll burn calories while doing it.
