In case you were worried, I'm fine and health-wise pretty good. I'm just taking a semi-blogcation so I can regenerate my worn down batteries! Self Care is something I practice as well as preach! I hope we're getting the message across that self-care is not self-ish! On the contrary, it's necessary to taking care of the caregiver, sets an EXcellent EXample for our Loved Ones, and helps people repair emotions such as anger, guilt and resentment. Put yourselves first - especially when you embark on your Quit Journey! You will be taking the best possible action for your Loved Ones! They need you to be wholely there, not depleted and EXhausted! Self-Care is a relapse-protection and recovery tool that stays at the top of my Quit Tool Box!
