  1. Love that this post was written the day after my 60th Birthday. Turning Sixty was a pivotal point in my life. I made several personal and private vows to myself because I wanted to start my 6th decade on the good foot.

    Enjoying my part time Community Outreach job where I get to do Research plus interactions with the Public.

    Daily walks to improve my health. Having fun with the Step Challenges.

    Continuing with my Photography, Artwork and writing. Making focused efforts to remain positive and upbeat.

    1. See…it’s a belated birthday gift to you 😉
      …and glad to see you doing so many things just for you D! I know they’ll not only help you, but others (like your community outreach job).


      1. More important is to be in a position to do for others. Getting the focus off myself and finding ways to help those in need. Reaching out and finding solutions that will make our neighborhoods safer and better Places to Live.

  2. This is probably the realist definition of self love I’ve seen that resonates with me. I love the giving myself “permission to be”. That’s beautiful 💜

  3. Wise words from your goddaughter, Kathy! 😀 It is hard to embrace oneself without reservation and giving oneself permission to be oneself, without adjusting to others and their needs. Full marks to Kotrish … I’ll keep her words in mind.

  4. So simple, yet so true. I have to focus on me. My youngest is in the hospital (he has the flu and pneumonia because when we do something, we go all out). I’m going to take this advice and make time to read and exercise before bed – with the door closed so the nurses don’t laugh.

    1. I thought I’d answered this…maybe in my head, as I sometimes do. Yes, even when we think we cannot, we have to give ourselves a little time. And best of luck with our son; the flu has touched so many this season. I hope he’s well.

  5. Kay, I love this. I’m just now really getting into me. So, I can really relate to this. I used to steal time for myself. I don’t have to do that anymore. I still feel guilty at times, but not as often as before. Thanks for posting.

    1. Thanks Lynette! It is definitely a process and if you’re not used to telling people no, or making time for yourself in various ways, it can make you feel a little guilty. I always think, “They’ll be aight,” and usually it’s true.

  6. Oooh I’m loving this! When you’re not very happy, it’s hard to love yourself, well, I found it hard … but now that I’m happier, I’m beginning to understand what you mean. It’s taken a long time to get there but I am. Thanks for posting. 🌼
