You can find me walking into this New Year with all kinds of confidence and positivity. Don’t you love waking up to all of the newness and fresh possibilities?
I kind of feel unstoppable! Like, I’m about to boss up on 2019!
**Disclaimer….I’m a trained actor, this is a set gun, and no one was harmed in the making of this awesome show on Investigation Discovery.**
Anyone else? Oh, not that extreme. Okay…I’ll just be over here trying not to feel awkward about being a bit dramatic.
In all honesty….I wasn’t always filled with this much zeal for the New Year. Looking back, I realized it was because I was doing a poor job of taking care of myself. Don’t get me wrong, I love me. I just fell into the rhythm of putting everyone else’s needs before my own. Chasing babies around the house, being an Uber driver for my kids, sneaking veggies into meals for my sugar obsessed loves, laundry (so much laundry) and supporting my husband are all amazing things and I will always love doing them. But, this year I am making self care a priority.
It seems like a simple thing, right? Why in the world was it so hard for me? It’s pretty simple actually. I said “Yes” to everyone else which often times resulted in a “No” for the things I needed and wanted for myself. Can I get an amen from all of the self sacrificing women out there?
No pitty parties over hear…just revelation knowledge. Hallelujah!! The more you know….the more you either change things or stay in the same mediocrity you’ve help create.
Self Care “Yes’s” for Me
- Quality time with God. An absolute must if I want to be a bright and shiny human out in these streets!
- Eat healthy and stay active!
- Take time off when I’m sick or feeling overwhelmed…..and not feel guilty about it!
- Dress up for all of the things. I love fashion and it makes me feel amazing!
- Go all in on my acting career which, means taking time to push myself past my fears, working with other creatives and tons of mindset and emotional training.
- Press into all of the emotions I have and stop judging myself so harshly!
- Take care of my appearance! It matters and does wonders for your confidence.
I’m happy to report the joke’s on 2019 because, I started doing some of these before the New Year!
One of my favorite self care “Yes’s” is with my appearance. Feeling your best on the outside has a big impact on your mind and heart. I’ve recently started to really care for my skin. I mean, come on….it is the largest organ of our body. We should be showering it with TLC! Our skin protects us from all kinds of dangers and has a pretty big job in doing so.
Can I be really honest? Mom/Woman guilt is a real thing for me and I put off caring for my skin for a really long time. That was until I met the skin care angels of Aesthetic Specialty Center! Kim and Melissa are among the absolute best in the biz and guided me through some amazing treatments that have boosted my confidence and enhanced my skin care game.
I thought it would be fun to take you guys along while I had my most recent treatment, Laser Genesis. Laser Genesis improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through collagen stimulation with zero recovery time. Over the course of your treatment it can fade acne scarring and promote overall healthy skin tones.
I say, “YASSSSSSSSS” to all of that!
See how much fun it is to Treat Yo Self?!
To help you get started on your Self Care journey my girls of ASC are offering 20% off of your Laser Genesis Treatment! Happy 2019 to you!! All there’s left to do is to schedule your appointment with Kim Bogash and mention my name.
Cheers to living your best life and to loving yourself well in 2019!
