Taking Care of Me, Also!

So, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately and I’ve been trying to figure out what I need to do to rid myself of those feelings. And yesterday, I was reminded of how important it is to have friends. At one point in my life, I didn’t think I needed anyone. I was on some F**k the world type stuff. I guess once I got a taste of freedom, I took off! But anyway, I started to make friends again here and there. Some for only a season.

I was reminded how important it is to have people in your corner. My friends have really been holding me down. I have been receiving great advice and also spa day. I couldn’t say no to the spa day. I was taken by surprise, so I said this will be the boost to get me started on catering to my needs as well. I always say that I’m going to do more for myself, but never do.

Now that I’m no longer in the Army, I have to really use my time wisely because it goes by so fast. Some days I do nothing towards my future because I’m not managing my time. So the next thing on my to-do list is to create a schedule. I need to give myself sometime to meditate, read, write, and whatever else I want to do...for me!

I’ve also been looking for different apps that sends words of affirmation. I came across one that’s called Shine. I read one of their daily articles about treating yourself the same way you treat your friends. Basically, being kind to yourself. Try to see the good that we do in life or any general situation. I can’t quote the whole article, but I will try to find a way to share it to my site without it being copyrighted.

The point I’m making is be a friend to yourself as well. And that just means, have good things to say about yourself and take care of your MENTAL, physical, and emotional needs. Have a circle of friends that lifts you up! When I’m around my good friends, I get to be Keela. Not the wife or mother for those moments. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy the company of my family but having a balance of the different hats I wear is key.
