Self-care means what it says on the tin.
The intention to care for oneself comes with a couple of problems. What’s nourishing keeps changing. Yesterday’s solutions don’t work, except when they do. Plus you have to be present for self-care to do its magic.
A woman once called me, exasperated, from her front porch. She had banished herself, she said, and didn’t plan to return to her house until she found her way back: inside her skin, in the present moment.
Practice: Notice what you think of her decision.
How closely does that assessment parallel how well (or poorly) you take care of yourself?
