As you can imagine, when I got home from work, playing beauty salon was pretty low on my list of things I wanted to do. Alas, part of this self-care challenge is doing things that are good for me, even if I don’t want to do them. So, I hit up Pinterest and found what new thing I was going to do with my hair.
It was my cousin Michael who first suggested I listen to podcasts in the car.
Since no one is there to notice if I slip up, I lie to myself, make excuses to myself, and stop. The truth is this: no one will know if I don’t take care of myself, and I can deceive myself about the amount of self-care I’m actually practicing.
