Life is hard. Life can also be repetitive, grueling, and exhausting when you’re everything to everyone. If you’re a mother, you’re the person who gives of herself every day to make sure your family is happy.
If you’re a father, you’re the person who makes sure everyone is safe and secure. And if you’re single, you have to make sure you have food on the table and security all at the same time. Every day, we all sacrifice more and more for the greater good. But just because life isn’t easy, doesn’t mean we should forget about ourselves. Which is why I wrote this editorial. I wanted to share 10 things that make me happy in order to spark the conversation of self-care.
