Sharing ways that I put me first.
After my first baby boy, I honestly forgot about me.
It was about him and him and him and him.
And guess who ran right into #postpartumdepression
So with my daughter, I have been more vocal about what I need and guess who is putting their needs and #selfcare first?
Each day I’m learning that I literally matter and if I’m not good mentally.
Then nothing is good.
There are 5 things that I have decided to do which are non-negotiable.
🤍 I am kind to myself. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy with our negative thoughts and false expectations.
🤍 Alone time
I must have alone time, so for me that looks like me getting up earlier while everyone is sleep.
Or once my kids are asleep I take advantage of the time when the house is super quiet.
I read my devotionals, pray, journal or even just cry.
🤍 Keep my hair, nails, and feet did. And I know we are all in the house but I’m finding cute and sexy loungewear and slippers or socks to wear around the house.
When I look good I feel good.
🤍 I make sure I buy myself something nice every month.
That doesn’t include food. 🥴
🤍 Take myself on a date.
I did this before being married and I do this now. Because I enjoy being with me for real.
What are some of the things you are doing for you that is non-negotiable?
