Tonight’s Self-Care

Self-care, like so many other things in life, is really about each individual…

Tonight, for me, self care looks like a combination of things:

Hanging out with my family
Listening to music of a wide variety
Scentsy shopping
Art Therapy

And, sitting near a lit tree…which is honestly one of my favorite places in the world to sit. I feel so at peace near a decorated & lit tree.

Tonight, I am doing all of this alone, after one of the hardest weeks I’ve had in a long time:

I’ve been sick.
Baby seester has been in extreme pain.
An emotional & heart-wrenching week at work.
And, a tragedy struck my hometown to round it out.

But, in the quiet of the night, I am reminding myself it’s ok to feel it all. It’s ok to do what I need to to reset, so that I can move forward the next week.

Tonight, it’s just me alone.

One day (Lord Willing, & I really hope), there will be a partner. One who will have to understand my need for nights like this – with some space. One who will also have to understand my need for nights together, when I can’t be left alone with my thoughts for threat of going crazy in my own head. I look forward to that time.

But, tonight, it’s just me & my tree:
