Are you good at getting rid of stuff? 🚨Honesty Post Alert!!.. 🚨
I am TERRIBLE!! 😖 I’m one of them...Oh but I might use it one day!.Or I might wear it one day!!.. Thing is...That day just never seems to come 🤨🤷🏻♀️ Take these books for instance!..I have a whole freaking book shelf of em!.. When we moved house I literally picked them up from our old book shelf and transported them to this one..Something else?..I also transported them from the first house we lived in!.. But today I walked past them like I do every single day and they literally stopped me!!... Whyyyyyy On Gods Green Earth have I still got all these books!.. Because they aren’t happy books, they aren’t uplifting and inspiring!!.. Some are down right bloody traumatic..That would leave me sobbing as I read them!.. But that was my life at the time, Unhappy, Families falling apart, abusive relationships!
And I think looking back I read them because I could relate, and it was almost something to resonate with, Like I wasn’t on my own, So it almost took some of that pain away!
Saying it out loud sounds kinda crazy now!..But Hey..My life was a big ball of crazy, unorganised mess!
Just like some of the characters in these books!!.. My reading attire has changed pretty Dramatically these day’s!.. I read books that make me feel happy. Personal development books, books I get lost In the pages of!💕 Books that Feed My Mind with positivity!. Because these are now part of my self care routine!.. And that my friends is my point! Self care isn’t just about exercising, it’s everything we do. The books we read, the music we listen too, the food we eat, The people we choose to love, it’s everything and anything we do!
And Yes! Everyone can practice self care.. Of course I recommend moving your body more, I recommend fuelling your body with wholesome food!.. But I also recommend hot bubble baths, Getting up that little bit earlier to drink your first morning coffee in peace, taking yourself out for coffee!!. Because that’s the Beauty in it "SELF” care..You get to choose what it looks like for you!!.. We are all deserving of it!.. So Go give yourself a little..Or a lot!..👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
