Me again…days later.
I swear, I’m going to try my hardest to get a writing streak for the last full week of February! This month has just been whacky for me in so many ways. But, onward to a new prompt!
Today’s prompt is: “How can you better love yourself and put things into practice?”
I know I need to have more alone time. And by that, I mean, time when I’m not scrolling through my phone, or even messaging other people, but silence…reading and writing for ME. Taking time to watch a show fully without really picking my phone up. Blogging (like this) for me. Thinking about my alone times, I realize how much I spend of it on content creating for myself, or planning, or just mindlessly scrolling because I’m tired, when I could be doing something more self-fulfilling like just writing my thoughts and feelings down for the day.
I used to have Wednesdays as my self-care nights — I wouldn’t go to the gym, but I would run a bubble bath, light a candle, play some music, just relax for a mid-week reset. I haven’t done that in a very long time, and I think my spirit needs that again.
My spirit also needs more WRITING. I need my creative outlet to open back up again. I feel like I’ve been focused on getting back on track in other areas of my life, but my writing hasn’t been utilized, and the second month of this year is almost over. I have a couple of books with writing prompts that I’m excited to get into. Maybe I’ll start tomorrow.
But yes! That’s what I’m hoping to accompli8sh in loving myself. I have been loving myself well in many other different ways, but spending time just reflecting on my life instead of responding to it just seems needed.
