Self Care is a Divine Responsibility.

Well, last week was a blast with some child-free time!

Let’s just say, it doesn’t happen very often that the stars align and all my girls and I are able to get out at the same time, so it was well overdue!

I may have been *slightly* delicate on Sunday, but getting my boys back home was the icing on the cake and I felt like normality could resume (so long as it was quietly and without big squishy hugs around my middle).

So that brings me onto this week’s desk altar!

“Self care is a divine responsibility” – a Danielle LaPorte truthbomb.

I figured after last week’s busy-ness, this week is a good one to relax, rest, and recuperate.

Well, as much as is possible with children on the scene!

I’m keeping it simple this week. Again! I’m sensing a theme over these holidays…

We’re having a quiet one… reading, gaming, lots of cuddles (and tickles), family movie time and then doing our own thing in between.

It’s been pretty sweet actually, and a good way to spend the dreary Scottish “summer” we’ve been having.

With self care and self love comes the beautiful rose quartz! The ultimate stone for unconditional (self) love and forgiveness.

It is a key crystal in learning how to love yourself as well as how to let others love you. We can all do with a little more compassion for ourselves as well as others, can’t we?

So here are some questions for YOU:

What do you do to practice self care? Is it something you do regularly, or just if/when you remember?

Leave a comment with your answers, and have a wonderful week!

    Oh yes, it’s very important for us parents to take time out for ourselves and I’m glad to hear that you’re doing so too. I find it’s easier now that my child is a teenager. Right now I’m having a lazy breakfast while catching up on some blog reading…. before I wake that ever-sleeping teen of mine!! Later on I plan a spot of reading and some knitting. And a walk and some Netflix viewing with said teenager.Have a lovely summer…. btw it’s pretty dreary here in Ireland too! Bleh… 🙂 xx

      Is it bad that I’m sort of relieved it’s not just us who’s having a crappy summer weather wise? 😉 *grins*
      I agree, it’s a lot easier now the boys are older too. In the mornings they tend to get up and go straight onto the computer and consoles for a few hours. I have to change Max but other than that I get to sleep in mostly! Bliss. 😀
