Self-Care Memes for February 2019

For the longest time, I’ve been really intimidated by Instagram. There’s just so much prettiness! At the same time, I’ve also been really frustrated with my Facebook Page. Facebook algorithms make it so hard for posts to be seen unless you pay money to “boost” them. I have over 20,000 fans on my Facebook page and I’m lucky if I get 50 likes on a post. It’s so discouraging! I decided to try my hand at Instagram and it has paid off big time. In just a few months I went from 5,000 followers to almost 20,000, insert cheering! I’ve really been focusing on creating good content, so here’s the best of February, so far! Be sure to follow me over there if you’re interested in more self-care memes! The healing journey is never linear. We make progress and then slide backwards, make progress again, and then hit a point…

You Have Permission to Fall Apart

Sometimes when I’m having a sad day (hullo there Depression), I like to write myself little love notes. Sometimes they’re encouraging or loving or comforting. A lot of the time they’re validating. It is so important to validate what you’re feeling. For so long I forced myself to get over things. I told myself not to dwell on it. Let it go. Move on. My turn-around rate on emotions was supposed to be fast. Get. Over. It. But being the me that I am, that doesn’t work. I have to feel things. I have to process things, and it often takes me awhile. Being the sensitive little noodle that I am, the depths of my feelings can sometimes be overwhelming. I wrote these words (in my Self-Love Workbook actually!) when I was having a sad day. I wanted to remind myself that however I choose to process my feelings is…

A Happy Winter Solstice to You!!

It is officially the first day of winter and the longest night of the year! Happy Winter Solstice, Merry Yule, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, a Joyous whatever-it-is-that-you-celebrate. In my little corner of the world I celebrate this day as the day the sun is reborn, the light begins to return. Opportunity. Light. Hope. Even though it’s officially the first day of winter I see the rays of light. I start seeing glimpses of what’s ahead. It’s beautiful. My solstice wish for you this year is this: That your feet stay warm and so does your heart. Don’t let the world make your heart cold. I hope you never have the occasion to say “I wish I could stop feeling.” Because your feelings and your heart are beautiful. That you know how strong you are. That you have faith in yourself. Stop doubting that you can do the thing. You are strong enough…

You Matter + Thank You For Being You

The other day, in the SoulSisterhood, one of our tribe members was having a bad day where she felt like she didn’t really matter. I think we all feel like that sometimes. I know I do. There are moments when I look at my life and I’m just like “I’ve only accomplished this?“. Thankfully those moments have been few and far between in the last few years, however, they always seem to pop up around the holidays. It was a rare year that I made it through November and December unscathed by depression. Up to this point, I’ve spent the holidays alone. I have some issues with my family and it’s better for my emotional health not to put myself into the family holiday fray. I used to get really sad about it because it made me feel alone. As a result, I was sad and resentful of all of the family…
