I feel like there is such a taboo around the word ‘self-care’, in my opinion (for what it’s worth) is this… Self-care to me does NOT mean an hour-long bubble bath or an overseas trip (sure I wouldn’t say no, but in my world that’s just not possible). I have realised that self-care means choosing a Kombucha over a can of coke, it means adding bulk vegetables into every meal I can, it means having frozen pizza’s for dinner when I have just had one of those days (you know those days I’m talking about). It means saying yes to building train tracks and being 100% present in that moment, but also means saying ‘not yet’ if I’m already juggling tasks. It’s about having ‘sickies’ when none of us are actually sick, just to escape the daily grind for 24 hrs. It’s about accepting and being unapologetically MYSELF (for the first time in my life). I have always been given shit for being so ‘yes sir’ and being able to agree with all different sides of a story; but you know what, that is possibly my favourite quality about myself, and I have also learned that it is actually OK to like something about yourself. Motherhood has bought out my better qualities (whilst questioning my worst!), but I finally feel like I know who I am (well we’re always on that journey) and you know what, she can be pretty fu*%ing cool. So, the point of that life story is that self-care ‘to me’ means learning who YOU are and NUTURING her along that journey. We can all walk around pretending like we get more than one shot at this crazy life but apparently the statics say that 100% of us wont! . So, what does self care mean to you?
