Want to know the best the best tip for self-care?
Always buy the chai latte.
Let me explain. I’ve made this rule to always tip with my tips.
Because I know the work it takes to earn them. I know what it feels like to hear a few coins drop or see a crumpled dollar in the tip jar.
And I have also made this rule to not say know to the good and what you know your heart needs.
Like a chai tea latte. Or an m&m blizzard from DQ. Or watching Jane the Virgin until midnight. Or going surfing even though your arms are toothpicks.
Now there are always boundaries, and sometimes sleep is really needed and Jane can wait for another night or two. But sometimes, you work 11 hours in a day and deserve a coffee and a freaking milkshake. Or sometimes you just really need time with people who love you well rather than getting a few extra hours of sleep.
But when it comes to self-care, to caring for your heart, your soul, your whole self? The thing you need to know is that you need to know yourself. You need to know what makes you tick, what helps your heart and what makes those Mondays even possible in the first place.
And for me it is a hot, dirty chai latte, skipping the introvert corner and soaking in the friend time, and failing miserably at catching a wave for the 1000th time.
So, what’s your chai latte? What does your heart need right now?
Go, and get it.
See ya soon,
