Day 31: Check in with yourself

Things in my private life are going well. I’ve managed to lose 5 pounds. My son joined the bowling team at school. My husband and I are still crazy about each other. Things are good.

In spite of all that, I still carry a heavy sense of foreboding in my heart. As if something is coming to destroy my peace. Perhaps that something has already made an appearance. In uncertain times, it’s good to remember to take care of yourself. I’ve found that a good self care regimen really helps. Do something that makes YOU happy every day. No excuses.

Enjoy exercise? Hit the gym extra hard today.

Like video games? Lose yourself in a fantasy for a while.

Is wine your thing? Have a glass or two.

Have a preferred deity? Drop your worries at their door.

Make yourself and your piece of mind a priority. No one else is going to, that’s for sure.


Day 21: B-Day

I couldn’t leave the house again today, so I watched and danced along to Beyoncé videos.

It got me to thinking… Beyoncé is a modern everywoman. There is something in her that embodies all of us. I can easily see things that I love about myself in her. I made a short list for myself.

Mid-thirties? Check!

Loves her babies? Check!

Enjoys having sex with her husband and has no problem sharing that info? Check!

Is trying to do some good in the world? Check!

Trying to love herself? Check!

Out here living her best life? Working on it!

Hopefully, there are some things that you can identify with when you watch Beyoncé. It’s hella good for your self-esteem. Give it a try.
