Self-care is crucial for maintaining good mental health, so what have you been up to? If you haven’t been partaking in self-care this week, what do you aim to do for next week?
Like those stretchmarks, wrinkles, lines, the added height she has not seen, I am confronted with an intense grief.
If you get night terrors; you are not a freak. You are not a freak for feeling anxious, or because you have experienced trauma, or any other reason.
For me, it is a text when someone is thinking of me, a small act of kindness, or a considerate conversation when I need support. Love exists in so many beautiful forms, and I think that is special.
My mother died in 1999, but I still miss her as though she just walked out the door.
Self care can be defined as this: an activity that helps to improve your mental health and wellbeing without causing stress or anxiety.
From a small comment, to a long letter: What would it be?
Mommy loves to tell the story of the day I was born. As soon as I was all cleaned up and looking beautiful, they handed me to my Daddy. Of course, I was yelling my fool head off as babies tend to do. He smiled, patted my rear, and snuggled me close.
I’ve been really emotional leading up to this Mother’s Day. I miss her more with every passing day. Her absence at home is deafening. I spend a lot of my weekends visiting her. It’s a beautifully serene place and I feel very comfortable there. Sometimes my younger sister and I take a picnic blanket, we lay down and have a good cry!
You should be. What is it exactly you are proud of yourself for?
