TLC: Day 7

Orange socks

What is it to care for oneself?

I suppose to some it’s going to the gym and working out.

I suppose to some it’s counting calories; doubling up on vegetables and fruits.

I suppose to some it’s styling their hair and putting on make-up every day — even if it’s only to walk outside to the mailbox.

I suppose to some it’s drinking eight glasses of water a day, followed by a glass or two of red wine with dinner.

I suppose to some it’s making sure to get eight hours of sleep every night.

And that’s all good for the body.

I suppose to others it’s paying bills on time.

I suppose to others it’s saving for a rainy day.

I suppose to others it’s keeping a stash available for minor financial emergencies.

I suppose to others it’s planning for a comfortable retirement.

I suppose to others it’s safe-keeping the inheritance for future generations.

And that’s all good for the budget.

Now…

To sip a hot cup of good tea.

To listen to soothing music.

To light a candle in the dark.

To wrap up in a sweater or a throw.

To pick up a book, breath in it’s musty fragrance, open and get lost in the story.

That’s good for the soul.

Take care of you, friend.
