We ALL deserve self-care

We ALL deserve self-care

I cannot emphasize the importance of self-care moments enough. When I allowed myself this self-care day, all of a sudden moments of awakening arose. My mind just felt so light and emptied for a bit, while it’s always so full of everything.

I want to shift from never allowing myself anything until I’ve “suffered enough”, to allowing myself love and respect both as an artist and as a person, way before I reach the level of burnout. Until now, I feel like I very much failed to do that. I always felt like I need to suffer before I actually deserve something good to happen.

To me, it’s always been hard to see my value, not only as a person, but also in my work, because I’ve heard so many times I’m just not worth it. That is in personal relationships and with people online. Growing up you kind of grow attached to that belief and start living up to it, you know?

So what I’m aiming for now is to offer myself chunks of time out of my week to take care of me, and not aim for a point of suffering so I finally deserve another book, another Patron, another sale, another compliment and love.

If I were to be my own daughter, I would never tell her she can only get a book if she has achieved so much or until she’s dead tired, that her work is not valuable and she should let her dreams go because people would never buy it, I’d never tell her she doesn’t deserve to be loved. When I tell myself this, I tear up knowing I deserve so much better than how I’ve been treating myself. I guess it’s easier to maintain negative habits than it is to transfer them into positive ones.

Let’s treat ourselves with kindness, we deserve it so much, all of us 💜 

xoxo

A letter on why your body IS enough

It's totally understandable why you believe that your body is imperfect, unworthy of love, flawed, that you show up being "brave" to show your body instead of just beautifully you. It's social media misleading us and its unrealistic expectations it has built up towards your body.
