Hello, it's me again, and yes, I'm hammering the necessity of self-care AGAIN and how to implement it in your life.
Because it's that important, and it will help solve many problems in other areas of your life. TRUST ME. It's huge ("that's what she said"...sorry, couldn't pass that one up 🤣)!
So, I have a little secret to share, or more like a confession, or maybe it's more of a reveal...
I'm not good at a lot of things despite trying to be perfect at just about everything I do.
Things I am bad at...cooking (mildly bad despite my family trying to make me feel good about it), golf (significantly bad even though I've never tried, just assuming), remaining calm in stressful situations (TERRIBLE, I'm a wreck whenever my husband is driving in traffic! 😱), and taking care of myself has been on the "bad" list for as long as I can remember...it's just not something I've ever done or knew how to do.
If I really take a look at WHY I have been bad at it, then I embarrassingly have to admit I'm not sure I believed I deserved it. Sounds so weird to share this openly, but it's true.
I'm really good at putting others first (yes, this even includes my cutie pup, Harper...check her out on my Instagram feed here) and then wonder why I sometimes feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and resentful (ok, more than sometimes, like A LOT).
