International Self-Care Day July 24th 2020

In honor of Self-Care Day:

There are many days when we have hard days.

Days when we feel we have unraveled so much that, we’re afraid we won’t be able to pull ourselves back together again.

Days when we have fallen so deep that the light above us gets further away from us.

Days when we can’t get out of bed because we are numb, we just don’t have the will, we just don’t want to.

But we do.

It’s called STRENGTH.

The power within us, to try again, to muster every courage,

every energy we have left;

because we are fighters.

The beauty of self-care is that we have the power to self-recognize our own symptoms.

We know our own bodies, know when we are falling, know when we are slipping, we recognize the signs and therefore are able to self-help.

I know from my own experience that this is one amazing part of me that I have learned to perfect, as a person who has gone through depression.

It is pretty daunting to admit to saying  “I have perfected the experience of knowing the signs” of when I am falling or slipping; but hey, it is what it is, and I am sharing with you only the truth and hoping to give you insight from someone who’s gone through mental health.

Get to know yourself.

Know your triggers.

Take yourself away from them as quickly as possible.

Seek professional help, and most importantly, do many many SELF-CARE MOMENTS.

Remember:

Know your self-worth!

Love yourself

You are stronger than you give yourself credit for

Don’t take shit

Let things go, you cannot change

Go where you feel happy

Go where the mind calms you

Just don’t be good to other’s, be good to yourself too

Whatever lifts the corners of your mouth, trust that

Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on, but you keep going on anyways

Final Thoughts

Nobody can love you any better, than you.

Appreciate the morals you value

Appreciate what you like and what you don’t like and move on.

Realize you are beautiful inside and out and that you are unique and nobody can replicate you.

When you realize that, the sense of calmness that takes over your soul, body, and mental state, is damn beautiful.

Happy Self-Care Day my beautiful peoples!

Happy Canada Day, EH!

EH!! Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!

I don’t know about you but July 1st came so fast for me. This is month 5 with this pandemic and we have been making progress.  I say that’s been positive and I’m hoping we all can maintain this level of progression and hope that we see continued success.

Toronto has finally opened most of its businesses and we are somewhat back to normal. Of course, we are still practicing our social distancing and our constant washing/sanitizing of hands. I’ve heard in the news that the mayor wants to implement wearing masks to be mandatory when entering businesses starting July 7th. Of course, we will all comply, in order for our country to strive and completely flatten this virus.

Mentally I know its been really challenging. I know that for me I was so excited when I finally was able to go to my salon and do my hair! Even a simple task as that lifted my spirits, and when my son came home and not resembling wolverine, I ran into his arms and gave him the biggest hug ever! Seriously, little things like that can lift your mood and you feel better about yourself. It’s been forever for even just a simple thing as being allowed to groom yourself, made such a difference.

I  saw the change immediately. People in the mall smiling, allowed to pick an outfit, sitting outside on the patio enjoying a drink in the sunshine with a few of their friends; laughter in the air, children in the wading people splashing and just being their normal selves again, just made me feel so good inside.

July, I hope you be good for us, as long we are good for you.

Happy Birthday, Canada, thank you for being a great country!
