so. choices. not like should i take this job or move to spain kind of choices, but like, should i go to the gym or stop for a drink kind of choices. i was talking to a friend recently who said something along the lines of "i realized i've got to take better emotional care of myself." i'm talking about those kind of choices. self-care kind of choices.
self-care. what time do i need to go to bed to make tomorrow good? have i eaten enough vegetables lately? did i talk to my mom recently? are my toenails too long? is my toothbrush new enough? seriously, though... am i taking care of myself? the little things that add up to the big things? are you taking care of yourself? have you laughed with anyone recently? eaten your favorite thing? sat in the sun, stretched, told someone you love them and meant it?
take care of yourself. whole people take care of themselves. and when we forget to, neglect to, or make choices that we later reconsider, we don't throw in the towel. we move on to the next self-care choice and make the best one we can. that's how we roll. we are each going to get our shit together if it kills us.
