Self-Care

Needs To Be A Habit Too


Hello World 

“Sometimes The Most Important Thing In Your Whole Day, Is The Rest We Take Between Two Deep Breaths!” Etty Hillesum

Last night while reading the diary of Etty Hillesum, I came across the above quote and it made me think of how we constantly put everything and everyone before ourselves, sticking ourselves on the back burner with the “I’ll take care of me later” mindset and it hit me kinda hardπŸ€”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€” 

What about ourselves??? 

We make it a daily habit to take care of everyone and everything else yet the most important thing to do is to take care of ourselves and we totally slack on it and then wonder where frustration, resentments and all that other crap comes from! πŸ™„

Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

Hello World,

I have been a busy lady getting the bus all ready… Yet if course the window privacy panels were driving me insane cause no matter what they did not wanna stick to the vinyl along the windows unless I wanted to use crazy glue which would have defeated the purpose of me bringing able to take the up and down… SOOOOOOOO I changed them yet again.. Lol lol… There’s a before and after pic and OMG I am now loving them ❀❀…. 

That’s what made me think of this poem…I was feeling like I doing the same thing I’ve and over again DΓ©jΓ  Vu big-time and remembered a friend telling me about VujΓ  DΓ© … Which means seeing something familiar yet looking at it in a completely different way… Hence the changing of the window panels woo hoo hahaha πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

I also put in the fridge (see pic) so the kitchen is almost done which I’m really happy about and once that’s done, within a few days I’ll put down the rest of the flooring and then other than the inside electricity I’ll almost ready to hit the road for the Keys to go help clean up 😁❀😁

Hurricane Irma really messed up a ton of cell towers and internet lines so my service has been really spuradic hence my not being here as often, yet I wanted to stop in and say HELLO WORLD while I had the chance to say everything is moving along nicely… I’m down to only needing $424 to complete the inside electricity and my gofundme link is still active and below if anyone can help… ❀😘❀🌻

Self-Empathy, Self-Love

Have Compassion For Yourself Too


Hello World,

This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”.

We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. πŸ€”πŸ™„

They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too… 

So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest πŸ€—β€

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Set Healthy Boundaries

You’ve Got To Know When To Say No


Hello World,

Sometimes setting boundaries aren’t very
easy to do… Especially when someone we care about is stuck not knowing what to do…
Yet sometimes we just have to say no, we have to strand our ground… Cause other people issues can stress you out and that can weigh you down…. πŸ€”

Setting healthy boundaries shows that you’re aware, of all the things you can and can’t do, it doesn’t mean you don’t care…. Saying no is a complete sentence and it shows that you are strong… Don’t let others make you feel bad cause saying no isn’t wrong β€πŸ˜‰
…………………………………β€πŸ™β€…………………………………….
