#realtalktuesday : Yesterday, I decided to take this term off from school. Now, it might not seem like such a big deal to most people. Life happens, man. But to me, this is a major step for my mental health.
The last 12 months have been a roller coaster to put it lightly. I feel like I haven’t stopped, taken a second to enjoy the things I love with my whole heart and mind, or given myself an opportunity to heal. I’ve wasted energy worrying about the future, reflecting on the past and not really enjoying what I have given myself. .
Self-care isn’t always about mani/pedis, massages and a good face mask. It’s about recognizing that you deserve to feel happiness, love for yourself and others and knowing when to give yourself a break.
So I’ve given myself the next 11 weeks to relax, do house projects, enjoy my people, focus on recovery and just live a little in the moment. .
What are you doing to make sure you care for yourself?
