It feels so good to take care of myself these days.

For years I put myself on the back burner, always caring for others first, as moms tend to do. When my health got sketchy, with fatigue and joint pain, and I got up to 210 pounds, and had “thrown” my back out a couple times–I started feeling like “this is it, I’m old now” because of the sluggish feeling and lack of vitality. And I was only 44!

I didn’t realize then how much of it was just lack of self care, imbalance, stress and I was anemic too!

I turned it around when I got serious about making room in my life for awesome self care, great food, supplements for balance, regular exercise {which took me a few years to make it routine}, meditation, examining my core beliefs

And mostly making the decision to stop taking SHIT from anyone, and stand up for myself and my values. This took baby steps but I am amazed at how much I have changed just in the last 5 years!

I FIRMLY BELIEVE in taking care of you. No more excuses. You deserve it! Just like the flight attendant tells you to put your own oxygen mask on first, you need to make sure you’re rejuvenated and feeling solid before you give your life force away to others.

What do you do to take great care of yourself?
