(Author of Things I Wish I Knew Before My Mom Died) Ty Alexander has some encouraging words for taking care of yourself.
Did you do your homework last week? I told you to take care of yourself, so if you didn’t… get on that ASAP! But if you did… congrats, now you’ve gotta do it again. No days off when it comes to self care.
If your idea of self care is carving out time in your day for some good music and good vibes? Well, I have a little something for you! I go live on Twitch every Thursday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm (all times EST and -ish). So come party in the Rich Life Lounge with me and all our rich frens this weekend.
Last month, I did a Twitch fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and you all really showed up. You still have time to donate here.
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO…My inner child who is searching for ways to be seen. It’s been hard to hear her. She’s real quiet and isn’t use to being heard but I’ve been trying to give her permission to come out and get some love.
SOMETHING VALUABLE I LEARNED… There’s no one in the world that can make me feel better than myself. Self love is important for this reason. I reminded myself this week that outside validation isn’t needed.
A QUOTE I AM PONDERING… Go for joy with urgency!
