It's the beginning of the week. It's Monday. I'm here. I'm popping in to say hello - do a little blog, give you a podcast and ashare short video I did.
I want you all to know I'm working on myself too. I'm not fully cooked. I do this stuff I speak about all the time. When I slip up and forget or fall into a funk - I reach out and say "I've slipped, I forgot to do my self care stuff and I fell into a funk!".
I love the quote that I put up at the bottom. It's great. Find your tribe. The ones you would be thrilled to have inside your blanket fort. Because sometimes we need to make a blanket fort to heal and take care of ourselves. Now that's not to say you can't do your self care work out and about too. That's not to say build the blanket fort and don't come out. I've been dosing up on my self care routine - because frankly spending all day in a blanket fort was sounding a little too good - but it was because I wanted to hide - not blissfully read, or curl up with some music or giggles. There is a difference.
I've been staying close to people who "get it". They get the healing process. They understand vulnerability and feelings. They understand how it all feels. And they also rejoice in the compassion, empathy and kindness it brings to our lives so we can help others.
All right...so here is my podcast:
And here is the self care video I posted on Instagram:
I bought this shirt recently and I feel proud to wear it. I'm a classy chick. But I'm also frizzy, silly, and I love roosters and chickens. Oh and the red shoes - well that's just hysterical.
Be you. Be proud of who you are. You have a place here. We all do.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for being here.
