Honoring Yourself Through Self-Care

Practice Honoring Yourself

Honoring the Self and self-care is not just about taking care of your body, it is about taking care of your mind, your consciousness and knowing that you deserve to be happy, to feel good, and to be free from dis-ease. Life is meant to be spent loving, laughing, playing, and connecting – NOT struggling and just trying to make it through the day

This is your chance to change some patterns. Another known fact of life, form follows thought.  It’s so simple and freeing. If you want to change your world, change your thoughts. It’s time to create a new plan.

For the next 21 days, set aside the fears, limitations and beliefs, the news/television and honor yourself through the power of self-care. For more on the 21 Day Challenge order my book SHE THOUGHT, SHE COULD SHE DID. I write on how this practice saved my life!
