A little reminder for me, and maybe you too.
Take care of yourself, even when there’s so many other needs. Take time for your work out even when you’re already behind and it would be the easiest thing to cut out. Go out with your friends even when your baby clings to your leg at the door. Even when, mama. Even when.
Because you deserve it, period.
But also, because it will give you more you to pour from, and man do they love and crave more YOU. Because they will see an example of prioritizing themselves and taking care of themselves. Because they will see a woman cultivating her desire. Because they will get to see how empathy for others disappointment doesn’t mean they need to respond by changing their boundaries.
For you is for them, too.
