Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate the love and sacrifices of all mothers. Being…
It’s just about that time – summertime! People are starting to get double vaccinated, the evenings are longer and warmer, school’s out soon, and we are trying to usher back in a sense of normalcy.
Throughout the summer, I generally try and come from a place of YES instead of my frequent place of NO. “No, you can’t stay up later,” “No, it’s too late to go Dairy Queen tonight,” or “No, I can’t meet you for coffee, my friend, because I have too many deadlines.” It was a few years ago that I decided that that “no” was not going to dominate my summer vocabulary. Summer is a perfect time to say YES to your life. ESPECIALLY after the year we’ve had. We want to make sure we’re seizing the moments this summer 2021.
Most of us know that we should be incorporating a self-care regime into our daily lives. Yes, DAILY lives. But actually implementing it and making it happen, isn’t always as easy.
This morning on Global News, I shared tips and tricks on how to create a self-care routine you’ll stick to. Summer slacking is coming to an end, and if you’re a parent, the kids are also heading back to school… it’s therefore the perfect time to return to you. Our loved ones should see that our hobbies and passions also matter, and deserve to live on the family calendar too.
So, quit making excuses why you should be constantly doing for everyone around you, all the while walking around with a depleted tank. You can’t give from an empty cup, dear friend.
Sunday is the day we honor mothers everywhere. For some, Mother’s Day is a day to rejoice. For others, it’s a sad and difficult day, as many will celebrate this Mother’s Day without a mom. In my family, this day is always hard, as we celebrate Mother’s Day without my beautiful aunt who I was so very close to.
