Today I want to talk about taking care of oneself. It is something that is most heard in the health and wellness community. I have noticed it a lot on Pinterest. A while back I decided to make a board that I would like to call Advice. It began as a search for things that I thought would help me when I needed to get help for all things self-care like mental health pins or basic things for my post divorce life. Upon returning to the States I realized how much I was behind my peers and wanted to improve myself not in just their eyes but my own. So I searched, pinned, and found so many nugget of information. Than I thought maybe there are others out there just like me. So I decided to share as much on here on my blog as well as Twitter and Facebook.
I had to know that it was okay to be behind. It’s the lessons that you learn that is the most important. My friends have reminded me that even as I wonder about my son… taking care of myself was the best way to take care of him.
To be honest as a young child in elementary school the fad of what color or season are you come in 3rd grade I recall. I wanted so badly to be part of that discussion, but sadly not a lot of people could figure out my style. It felt pretty discouraging because I wanted to know what colors looked good on me and not just the cute outfit my mom or grandmother would get me. Yes I was that person that people mostly just got things hat looked cute on them. Honestly… I still am sometimes. Recently my friend started explaining to me about my skin tone. Reader I am almost 40 and I had no idea what she was talking to me about.
So what I am trying to say is it is never too late to learn how to take care of yourself. Just making the choice to come back and get my feet on the ground was the base of my self-care. Taking walks whenever the ground was in my opinion easy to walk on and I knew I wouldn’t fall over the cobblestones (this is back in Holeta of course) was my steps in self care.
So if you want advice on how to blog, take care of yourself, or those handy Do It Yourself projects look no further than Sara Gamachu on Pinterest. Leave me a comment or tweet about what you think about these posts. I sure love reading all of them.
