LOVE: Note to Self

General romanticism will have you believe that every act of love is a benevolent one; that when we do something out of love that it is automatically categorized as beautiful and comfortable and acceptable. Of course, this notion depends on who you’re talking to. Plenty of parents make decisions for their children out of love….

Love, Christopher

When I think of self care, the first thing that comes to mind is “looking out for #1.” At some point in our lives, most of us have a moment when we have to realize we can’t always look to others to take of us. You have to fend for yourself and take care of…

Love, Kelly

When someone mentions self-care, I literally conjure up feelings of maternal instincts… like nurturing your inner child. A need to play, heal or even practice discipline can be expressions of self-care. As an empath, I believe in the energetic expression and transfer of matter. As a people-pleaser, I’m guilty of sometimes letting the basic idea…

LOVE: Self Care vs. #selfcare

“Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument. “Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” – Rumi Self-care is the latest buzz word, especially…

Love, Delaney

I’m 55 years old. Some days I feel 35, and other days I’m closer to 85. I spent 20 years as an International Flight Attendant and 15 years managing talent in the entertainment industry. I’m also mother to two incredible sons. My life has always been about taking care of people in some form or…

Love, Dye Anne

Self-care for me comes for me in daily habits, inside and out. Inside, I make a habit of nurturing my body with proper minerals and vitamins, eating organic as much as possible and balancing my intake of sugar, caffeine and alcohol. Spiritually, I make a habit of meditating, chanting, journaling and praying. Outside, I love…

LOVE: An Exercise in Reflection

“What do you want?” What a simple… loaded… treacherous question. It is a question that many of us find hardest to respond with any modicum of honesty. Most of initially blurt out the most obvious surface answers. What do we want? We want what anyone wants: to be comfortable financially, lighter in weight and responsibility,…

LOVE: The Beginning…

“These are my feet on the ground.” I encourage my students to say these words to themselves whenever they feel ‘un-tethered.’ That feeling normally comes because of sudden stress or anxiety about a person or an event, and can potentially trigger a less than favorable reaction. The more you feel your proverbial feet on the…

Simple Skin

I don’t know about you, but once upon a time I was the master of the skincare layering technique. About the time the Asian practice of layering at least seven skincare ingredients (sometimes 10!) became popular in the United States, I was already well versed in the art of thin ‘layers’ of primers and serums…
