Today I will take care of me. End of story.


If it brings you joy, say yes. If it doesn’t, say no.  Sometimes it isn’t possible sticking with a  cut and dry answer, but many times it is just this simple.  Negating people and situations you know guarantee misery is a vital part of self care. 

Self care isn’t selfish;  it’s necessary even if it means disappointing others.  Slipping back into people pleasing mode is always a real possibility  for recovering doormats, so  before saying ‘yes’ to anybody, consider first, if you’re saying ‘yes’ to yourself as well.  

The ‘Today I will take care of me’  mug is on sale NOW.

    😊~ I just wanted to say, ”
    Thank You for the reminder.” I am definitely getting better at taking care of my self but it is always nice to be reminded. I am also in another recovery program, they use the saying, THIS IS A SELFISH PROGRAM. That has always stuck with me. But, just wanted to say Thank You.
