Love Yourself Self-Care

"If you must love your neighbor as yourself, it is at least as fair to love yourself as your neighbor." ~ Nicholas de Chamfort

As women, we are nurturers at heart and we have no problem taking care of everyone else. But when was the last time you took care of yourself? Taking care of yourself is not selfish, it is self-care.

This is why airlines tell you in the case of an emergency to put your own oxygen mask on first, then your dependents. This is pie-in-the-sky but sound advice and advice that we must take to heart in our everyday lives.

So, just for today, take yourself out on an Artist’s Date.

"You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy." ~ Author Unknown
