If you’ve landed here chances are you have an interest in getting better at practicing self care. My goal is simply to post what I’ve learned and continue to learn about practicing self-care. I am not an expert. More often than not I will post stories based on the mistakes I’ve made and what I learned from them. I am someone who continues to work at taking better care of myself internally, so that I am a better nurse, friend, person…But first, a couple of housekeeping items.
You do not have to be in the care-giving profession to read this blog. Even if you don’t work in the service profession you are a caregiver in some capacity and I’m hopeful anyone can find some nuggets of truth that make sense to them here.
And finally, my suggestions come from incredibly insightful friends and family, a very patient therapist and from personal realizations and mistakes…I mean “learning opportunities.” I want to acknowledge that without some amazing people in my life, this blog wouldn’t exist. My goal is to post once a week. Sometimes things will come up and I will post more or less frequently. But as long as it is useful to myself and others, I will keep on keeping on.
So…let’s get started!
