Surrounding Yourself With…

Here's a peek at some of the amazing ways you took time for yourself this weekend:
CPSCW_collageIn the spirit of taking care of yourself…for the past 2-1/2 years, I've worn a bracelet with the inscription on the inside “Surround yourself with those that bring out the best in you”.  I've been working on surrounding myself with people that do that for me, and also working on being that for others.

While striving to spend more time with those that make me a better version of myself, I've also been paying attention to the activities I choose .

It's so easy to get lost in a full schedule of work, carpool, errands and sometimes at the end of the week I find myself looking back and realizing I'd been going through the motions without activities that make me a better person.

That's when I decided to start a book club.  I used to LOVE reading but in the whirlwind of raising my girls, feeding my girls, carpooling my girls…I stopped reading.  So, I sent out a message to a whole bunch of girlfriends to see who was interested in meeting monthly to talk about a book.  A few of them said yes and for the past 6 months we've gotten together monthly to discuss books on so many different topics…zombies, marriage and relationships, alternate realities and race relations.

I've gotten to know and connect with my girlfriends on a whole new level and it's been so refreshing!

So as CP's Self Care Weekend comes to a close, let's all make a deal, ok? Let's try and sneak more of these activities that bring us joy, inspiration, and connection into our everyday lives. What do you say?

And by the way, I'm VERY glad that I feel so rested after this weekend, because we've got a BIG week ahead of us. Join me on Facebook Live tomorrow morning to hear about our newest ink collection and get ready for color reveals all week!

Leave a comment if you're excited about our new ink and to tell me how you're going to add more self care to your weeks ahead!
