Self care

I find it's easy to neglect one's self. Somehow there are always more important things that needs to get done, often at the detriment of our wellbeing.

I'm an expert at that. With all that has been going on in my life presently, I was on the road to a major burnout. Seemed I hadn't learned that lesson well last spring. However, this year I made it a point to respect myself and my need to self care.

Despite the huge amount of work requiring to get done, I took the time on Saturday to have dinner with a dear friend. We went to my favourite restaurant and, of course, I had my favourite dessert ... Bourbon Pecan pie with homemade ice cream. It's a shortbread crust .... Yum!

It's never too late to celebrate your special day with a friend!

That evening, I also attended a yearly event in my town. Each year, the CPKC Holiday Train makes a stop in our town and provides us with lovely entertainment. 

I bundled up and walked to the train station. It was such a lovely evening, a gorgeous clear sky. I love trains!

This train is so much fun! Thanks for the reminder about self care. I’ve been ignoring the physical activity part of mine but also the fun social parts, it’s easy to do. My outings usually mean shopping and appointments that aren’t fun but tiring and this certainly does not fill up the wellness part my mental health needs. Tomorrow we are going to the town tree lighting festival. A good start, right? 🎄✨I hope you begin to feel rested and healthier as you follow your self care path.
