What did you do this past weekend to take care of your self and show yourself some love?
Did you chisel out some time for yourself to relax or do something just for you, that you enjoy.
I want everyone who reads my blog to understand how important it is to take care of yourself.
Let me ask you a few questions.
*Why do you get maintenance on your car? oil change? new tires?
Answer…..so it will run properly to take you and your family where you need to go.
*Why do you wash your clothes on delicate cycle?
Answer: because you take care of your clothes so they will look good when you wear them.
*Last question… Aren’t you more important than an automobile, or an article of clothing.
Answer: YES YOU ARE!
Just a little Monday reminder!!!
I put together this list of helpful ideas on days when you need to take the time to do something for you…..remember you should be doing something for you everyday.
This should be you motto for everyday.
Every day is not going to go as planned or anywhere close to perfect. But how you take care of yourself will make a difference in how you handle your day.
Remember to keep BLOOMing!!

One of my biggest obstacles in my self care journey, is to calm and quiet my mind. I think about everything, all the time. Although, I have worked hard on choosing to think positive thoughts, turning my mind to quiet is still a challenge for me.
As most of you who follow me know, I attend a yoga class, once a week.
Before I began taking the classes, I did a lot of research on it; how it effects the body, was it a religious practice and what are the negative effects of yoga, if any. During my reading, I discovered yoga and meditation go hand and hand. Meditation is the mental part of yoga that deals with relaxing the mind and concentration. BINGO!!!
Relaxing my mind is just the self care technique I need. I had been going to yoga mostly for the physical benefits, now, I work more on the mental part of it as well. I try to concentrate on my breathing, making each breath deeper, holding it longer. I’m learning to allow my eyes to focus on one still (unmoving) object in order to keep my balance physically.
I still have a long way to go, it seems, before I call the meditation technique mastered, but at least I have a good start.
Below I’ve added a few tips for you to use if you need help, like I do, in calming and quieting your mind.
Let us know, in the comments, how your self care journey is going.
