THIS IS WHY YOUR SPIRIT IS ON LIFE SUPPORT

image for blog entry

I know why your spirit feels like it's on life support--why you're drained, exhausted, and frustrated.

You aren't putting YOU on your list of priorities.

It's not your fault though.

Women, especially, are bombarded with shaming messages about taking time for ourselves.

We're made to feel like we're being "selfish" for practicing acts of self-care.

You & your honey would spend hours chatting on the phone having deep conversations about nothing, yet you couldn’t hang up.

"You hang up first...no, you hang up first."  

You’d count the days down to the weekend because you’d finally get to see one another.  When the time came, you made sure you looked and smelled delicious because the weekend was sure to include a considerable amount of sexy time (as my colleague & friend Dr. Uchenna Ossai, aka YouSeeLogic, likes to call it .
