Tender Loving Care: Day 1

Pumpkins on Beach by Coastal Magazine

“Always be a little kinder than necessary.” –James M. Barrie

I’m hooking up again this October with The Nester for her 31-Days of Writing challenge. This month I’m going to explore how I might be able to give myself a little more Tender Loving Care [TLC]. Women tend to others more than they tend to themselves. We often find ourselves drained of energy and inspiration because we expend so much of who we are and what we do on others. We do so out of love for family and friends, respect for neighbors and coworkers, or compassion for strangers and, eventually, it takes its toll. I know that for me, especially, I need to focus more often on my own needs. So for the next 31-Days I’m going to attempt to dig deep and pay attention to that which I need and which I love. I’m going to concentrate on the seven B’s: Bible [His Word], Being [in the moment with family & friends], Body [overall health], Budget [pesky finances], Beauty [my writing and art], Books [reading] and Blog [sharing]. Take care of you, my friend. –Blessings

  1. Yes, taking care of ourselves is important. Sometimes we just need to take a step back and let the world go on without us for a day or an hour. I find it helps me get back into the game again with renewed energy and sometimes a different perspective.
