The Importance of Loving Yourself

Life is busy, and for most women, you wear a lot of different hats and you are a lot of different things to all the people in your life. And in the craziness that is your life, you focus on everything and everyone but yourself.

I am here to tell you, that is no way to live. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, my friends, and my job but the older I get, I realize that if I am not loving on myself, it makes it impossible to be the best of me for those that I care about the most. Self-care doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. Use great smelling and feeling Shea butter or essential oil and pamper yourself after a shower or bath.

Whether it be that mani/pedi you’ve been meaning to get or a kid-free trip to Target, take those moments just to be with you. Remember, great relationships start with yourself!
