Today I should be at the zoo with my youngest. Unfortunately, he had a rough morning and we stayed home. I look forward to getting outside of this house and being in the world.
Doing things beyond these four walls is part of my self care. Since we ended up having to stay home, I had to take a different approach. I am sitting watching the Bachelor: The Greatest Season Ever and reading Little Fires Everywhere. Getting lost in some fiction.
This comes after going outside. Listening to a podcast, getting some sunshine and exercise. Cleaning up the yard, trimming hedges and watering flowers. All activities for my self care.
Even though today didn’t go as I had planned. Heck the last 3 months haven’t and I think it is safe to say that the next 3 months will not either. I can still find things to do to take care of myself so the day doesn’t continue to spiral.
