Day 35 | 100 Days of Self Care


IMG_9418The trees are budding. Dead leaves and brittle branches are present, but life is pushing through. Soon the dead stuff will fall away and we’ll be able to see nothing, but green.

How true this is for ourselves too. When we ignore parts of who we are, it has a tendency to lay dormant or die a little. The beauty is it always has the ability to come back to life, but you have work at it. We are constantly changing, so to shed the old. New life has to push through.

What have you been ignoring?

Today’s Self Care Stats:


  • AM protein shake and scrambled eggs
  • My mile walk has morphed into a walk/run combo (no knee pain yet!)
  • Knee: stretches/exercises
  • Gratitude awareness
  • Journal writing
  • Early to bed (I don’t even recognize myself)

How I felt

Fantastic start to the day. Most of these self care accomplishments were completed before 8:30AM. That’s unheard of for me. I’m the type of person who would rather go running at 11PM than to hammer it out before a cup o’joe. What’s even crazier is it doesn’t feel forced. It feels as natural as a flower opening in spring. (heh, I’m all writerly today.)

Take away point

Change may require an initial “you’re doing this.” But once there is acceptance, it sort of unfolds on it’s own. All you have to do is follow it.
