Self love

Being an older sister and naturally a women I’ve always had an interest in homemaking. And would proudly take on the job.

Fast forward few decades:

Between the hobbies, wedding celebrations, friends & clients. And at the time a new full time job I veered off of something I’ve always loved – homemaking.

Today was one of those days where I wanted to be quiet, left with my own thoughts. To just be.

There is something about cooking while listening to soft tunes that keeps me grounded. In the moment. Where time stays still. And nothing else matters.
In the moments like this, I’m grateful for my life more than ever
and people I’m surrounded with.
Taking time for myself means slowing down, breathe deeper, being present.

I also know that by taking time for myself I become a better wife, friend, daughter, person. I am ME!

I take my life for granted. I do. In today’s hustle and bustle is hard to slow down. But when I finally do, I’m overwhelmed with the love I feel. Love for my life, for the little things and those around me.

As simple as a soft tune in the background and a night of cooking takes me someplace where I want to be more.

How do you practice self love?
