My Self-Care Routine

My Self-Care Routine

I’m back to blogging after taking a few weeks off to focus on myself. Life has been quite busy lately and I could tell that I was starting to feel burnt out from trying to get everything done. I literally had to hide my to-do list so I could focus on self-care. Two weeks off was glorious and allowed me to recharge, realign, and refocus on what matters most to me in my life.

Taking Care of Number One

Taking Care of Number One

Girl, last week was insane for me.  I have to say, it was probably the most stressful week I've had in a really long time.  I was so incredibly busy that my self-care routine went completely out the window.  My main focus last week was getting enough sleep so I could get through my hectic schedule.  My self-care was non-existent and I found myself in a funk by the end of the week.

Lesson learned.

Comfort Food

Comfort Food

Happy Tuesday, my loves.  It has been quite the week for me.  If you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen that I lost my grandma this past weekend.  She was the best lady I've ever known and I'm going to miss her deeply.  I know she is with me in spirit but that truth has not made these past few days any easier.  All I want is to hear her voice again, calling me "my angel".  Now, she is my angel watching over me for the rest of my life and I will always have her in my heart.

I've been mourning her loss for the past four days and it has been really tough.  I've noticed myself turning to many different things for comfort.  I've been calling family and close friends nonstop and seeking comfort in their voices and healing words.  I've found comfort in TV shows that make me laugh and also make me cry.  I've held meditating and journaling sessions with myself so that I could feel my grandma with me.  My comfort these past four days have also come from food.
