Why Self-Care Fails (It's Not What You Think)

A few years ago, a friend recommended I read a book.

 

In the book, the author discusses the rough time he’s been having, and how he started repeating to himself “I love myself, I love myself, I love myself.”

 

He suggested I try it too.

 

I literally couldn’t get the words out.

As I'm moving into my new position, I decided it was time for a reset. Instead of waiting until January again, a friend and I decided that we were going to reset our goals now.

So on August 17th, I started my new "one year plan."

However, this time I decided to do things completely differently.
