33 Acts for Self-Love and Self-Care

To me working on self-love or loving myself has been an ongoing process for many many years. In fact it is still a work in progress which I am better at navigating as I am getting gracefully older or not, haha. A part of self-love is giving yourself self-care, especially in practices and routines that make you feel grounded in life. This year I have not put much effort into my self-care routine as I would have hoped for, so I think for my 33rd year on this beautiful planet I’d like to invest a little more time into that. Hopefully it will further the self-love I have been developing over these past few years.

I’m at a place in my life now where I need more self-love and self-care as I start to transition from my early thirties into my mid-thirties. My life is moving along in ways I have hoped for many moons, but in countless ways I still am far away from the other things I want in life and I need to keep myself grounded during this time I need to practice more self-love and self-care so that I can see the things I want in life will unfold, even though  it is during the timeline I had reluctantly anticipated for myself, I will try to graciously accept that this is my path it has taken, so embracing it is the best form of self-love I can offer myself at this moment.
