On Friday, we've received some devastating news and ever since that happened, we have travelled back and forth to visit the family (I won't get into more details for privacy reasons).
We came home tonight, and I sat down on the bed, exhausted.
Without thinking, my hand moved left, and I grabbed my bottle of skin oils.
I applied it and felt my skin soften under my fingers.
I had forgotten to use it in the morning, as we had to rush to leave, and my body craved it.
I then got up, brushed my teeth, and then curled up in bed to watch something silly, just to let my mind wander.
Just a couple moments of self-care was all I needed to feel like myself again in a very hard time. And that is so valuable!
