August End-Of-Summer Self-Care Challenge!

It’s time for another monthly challenge! This one is all about making time to enjoy this last bit of wonderful summer sunshine, can you believe it’s almost over? Self-care is all about giving yourself what you need and that changes on a daily basis. Sometimes you need to go within and focus on all of those things like personal growth, self-development, and healing those inner wounds. (If you’re interested in that I have the perfect challenge for you here) and other times you need to take a step back and focus on the light-hearted moments, you know, that thing called fun. One of the best times of my life was the summer after I found self-care. I was really serious about becoming a better person and “fixing” all of the things that were wrong with me. I did deep shadow work, a lot of healing, owned up to my bullshit, and…

Tough Self-Love and Practicing Difficult Self-Care

If you’ve been hanging out here awhile then you know that my motto for self-care is “Ask yourself what you need.” And then do that thing. If you check out my Self-Love Workbook then you’ll see that my brand of self-care isn’t about manicures and vacations – but actionable steps that can improve your life, tough self-love. We’ve got to show a little tough love to ourselves on occasion. Sometimes we need to do something but we don’t want to do it. So we push it to the back-burner. There’s a lot of self-care that’s hard, that’s painful, and that stirs up a lot of unpleasant emotions and feelings. We need to do those things anyway. As someone that has anxiety and depression – it’s even more difficult to do some of those essential things. They trigger that anxious response and we tell ourselves that because it makes us feel bad initially…

Be Your Own Valentine! Celebrate with Self-Love!

Valentine’s day is coming up! I have celebrated most Valentine’s Days in my adult life, single. In the past, Valentine’s day caused a lot of emotional pain for me. It made me depressed and resentful and it put me in an awful mood. I hated this day that represented everyone else’s happily ever after until I realized that I was living my own unconventional fairy tale. It can have a passionate romance or not. There can be a Prince(ss) Charming, or not. It doesn’t change my own role in my little story of finding happiness and fulfillment. That’s the way we all try to write our story isn’t it? With magic and happiness, the main ingredients. With practice, it’s become a day that I enjoy. It’s a day when I am reminded that I am important and that I am special and that I deserve to be pampered and loved…
