Self Care Craft Along – #SelfCareCAL

Self Care is NOT selfish! It’s not making excuses to get out of necessities. It’s not hiding from responsibilities. It’s taking responsibility for your own well being and making sure you have the reserves you need to get through the priorities in life. It’s taking an hour out of your day to make sure you can get through the rest of the week.

I know… Continue reading Podcast Episode 8 – Taking Some Time Out For Me
