In this fast-paced world we live in, everything is instant. Everything can be done with a tap and a slide of a finger — from staying connected with a loved one at the other side of the world to simply catching up with a friend to finding a potential date.
What is self-care? How do you actually care for yourself?
To think that self-care is as simple as a nice day in the spa, everyday visit to the gym, a glamorous facial treatment, or an expensive wine night with friends is quite shallow. Self-care goes beyond the physical things.
It’s okay to not have it all figured out.
The truth is, you don’t have to conform to anyone’s expectation of who you should be. You don’t have to be obsessed about finding out what’s in store for you, if you’re on the right track, or if you’re going to regret the steps you take.
The thing about losing a loved one is that: once they’re gone every single memory you have will come vividly like it just happened 5 minutes ago. I remembered everything. Every single memory.
The idea of discovering oneself or becoming someone unexpected scares most of us; we ignore it, avoid it and sometimes, we even run away from it.
It’s nothing fancy or expensive but to us, it’s always special and definitely something we look forward to every single year. Seeing our complete, happy family every year is truly a sight to behold. They are the reason why I am grateful and joyful as I celebrate the season.
