20. Cafe conversation; self-care.
When I write the words ‘self-care’ what is the image that first comes to you?
A weird ritual from the self-help section of the Library?
Something a psychologist says in passing conversation to sound intelligent?
Self-care is simply a list of nurturing things that make you feel loved and well. Each and every one of us expresses love in a unique way and receives love in different ways as well.
As a single woman, it is easy to stop caring and loving ourselves because we are so busy trying to escape the feelings that often overwhelm us.
Write a list of things that make you feel loved. Here are some ideas:
Dinner with friends
Jobs ticked off a list
Then organise to have a coffee and conversation with a good friend about these things.
Sometimes all it takes is a conversation that matters to open up your heart to the possibility of loving differently and extravagantly.
How can you love yourself more?
