Look inside yourself. There is beauty there.
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." - Maya Angelou
Self care isn't vanity. It's sanity. And self care varies from person to person - it can be a bath or going to the gym or vegging out with your friends or partner or getting a manicure or eating something healthy.
There's no wrong way - but just take the time to take care of you!
Self-Care isn't Selfish. In order to take care of others, you need to take care of yourself first. I find that taking just ten minutes for yourself can make all the difference in the world.

We need both light and darkness to be whole. My invitation to you, and to myself, is to bring what's been hidden in the darkness out into the light to see and feel it more clearly.
Being in the yoga and wellness fields for the last twenty years, I've seen the damage it can cause to spiritually bypass uncomfortable "negative" feelings in favor of more "positive", "enlightened" acceptable ones. I continue to work on feeling the full range of my feelings and being as loving with myself as possible through the process. It's an ongoing process.
And if, as you dig in, it feels like too much, please reach out to a friend or tag in a professional. We are in this together. We need your light in the world.
I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.
- Henry David Thoreau
