Actual meaning of Self care

This Is What ‘Self-Care’ REALLY Means, Because It’s Not All Salt Baths And Chocolate Cake

Great article.

“It means rewiring what you have until your everyday life isn’t something you need therapy to recover from. It is no longer choosing a life that looks good over a life that feels good.”


Sometimes my life overwhelms me.

When you’re surrounded by people yet you know you’re alone.

When you’re expected to keep giving, yet don’t receive.

At times I wish I lived million miles away from family. That way I’d have no unfulfilled expectations.

I try not to be bitter and angry. But today the lack of balance leaves me lost in my life as I fall into an abyss.

I call cooee yet silence greeted.

Never forgotten

For years ago I was out bushwalking with my older kids.

One of my son’s best friends had just taken his own life.

The wave of sadness, regrets and what ifs still haunt me.

If he’d just reached out.

He was always one to ask about our family. We’d had him to our house countless times. Just that morning he’d gone to brunch with my son.

Please. If you feel this way, know that time can and will change life. Even great pain can dull, or be accepted as part of your journey into a new stronger person.

Please. If this you, reach out. Reach out now.


After ten years of not studying I’m back studying.

But as a qualified teacher it’s somewhat frustrating dealing with tertiary teachers as they’re not actually trained teachers. They may know their trade but they don’t know how to teach properly.
