Treat.Your.Self.

This year, 2017, has been filled with gems. From our first family ski trip to seeing dear friends get married to finding my village in our new(ish) community and more. But this year has also involved a lot of loss. Loss of family members and people who seem like family. After returning from my husband’s hometown after saying goodbye to his childhood home mid-June, I stated, “We’ve done enough #adulting for a lifetime.” Overall with the waves of life, we need to be reminded to make each day count and to give ourselves grace.

In the last 72 hours, I have said this very statement at least twice in all my counseling sessions. We are all focused on bettering our health, and we need to be graceful with how the journey unfolds.

Wellness is far more than diet, probiotics, sleep, and exercise. It’s about being connected with ourselves and knowing that we are worthy. We are the very person we should be at this very moment and we need to stop doing and start being. Being in the sense of self-love, forgiveness, and self-acceptance.

Life is short and amazing. Each week find time to take care of yourself. It doesn’t have to be a spa day, but it has to be something more than what we are accustomed to doing.
