How do you take care of yourself? Where do you put yourself on the priority list?
I'm just back from Tulum, Mexico, where I led a transformative retreat for 8 beautiful brave women. We practiced meditation and yoga at sunrise, swam like mermaids in turquoise fresh waters, and claimed our desires with a Mayan shaman.
Though I lead a lot of retreats, a lesson hit me loud and clear this time:
Self care is no longer optional. Self care is critical for a happy, purposeful life.
For example, one of the retreat attendees became widowed just a few months ago. She has a young daughter and between taking care of her, her husband, and her stepkids, she had always come last. However, she knows that how she treats herself will make the difference in how her daughter treats herself.
So here she was.
Treating herself like a Goddess.
And declaring light after a new dawn.
Tomorrow, February 13 is International Day of Self-Love, so I taped this video for you to declare your own light this week – for you to start treating yourself the way you deserve.
I'm celebrating Self-Love day with a massage, coffee with a friend and time to journal. How will you spend it?
With so much love,
