I am sure I am not the only one that feels that they should be constantly doing something productive. Whether that something be working, chores or other activities. I feel there is so much pressure to be consistently working towards a goal and achieving.
I have been journaling or keeping a diary on and off since I was young. Do you remember the diaries that had little padlocks on them? Thinking it was so safe locked, turns out, a little fiddle with a hair pin and the thing popped open ha ha!

Self-care has become a well-known term and I think that people are now making themselves a priority. How many times have you cancelled something you had planned to be there for someone else?

It is okay to put yourself first!
