Self care to a lot of us are polished nails, a haircut/color or new wardrobe. It’s very natural to avoid ourselves we manicure our lives for Facebook, Instagram, our jobs, spouses and our internal needs take a backseat. We forget or replace with things that can become our addictions or worst enemy. Do you unknowingly deny yourself internal self care? There are some souls that go as far as using other souls for the upkeep of their own emotions. Internal upkeep is the glue that holds me together and keeps me conscious of my power and ability to evolve naturally into a more confident, self aware and striking individual.
Internal self care is one of the most conflicting exercises to do because of its associated trauma and “hole” of emotions others find hard to escape. As you age in your stage time honors less of your choices, so when you choose to heal you take accountability of your delayed freedom. First you have to feel where you are and deny your flesh or spirit the opportunity of destroying good things because you are not prepared to welcome divine happiness.
Here’s How I welcome mine!
Today was different than most days I decided to tackle what I love most about who I am that is my “Space”. I don’t clutter my life with things or people in order to get a handle on myself I just deal with me alone A LOT! One of the ways this happens is life and its funny way of zapping me with the “spontaneity spirit” next thing I know I’m breaking away from my norm “blog boss” routine errands, brand strategy meets, blogging etc. I grab a journal or magazine, pick a place to sit down ALONE which usually involves stares, running into friends or “pop up” conversations over a menu fitting the needs of my entrepreneur budget. I choose to sit alone and access the visual ability of my values.

Spontaneity involves new eats here in the city Rye Restaurant is not only aesthetically pleasing but the cuisine is noted to be $$$$ worthy and VERY affordable. Immediately my thoughts were, when can I go and what do I wear?
My style is gender neutral I like to balance my feminine and masculine energy by combining dark tones with feminine silhouettes with a nod to menswear.
Jumpsuits shine when you pair them with basic tee’s or solid color tops. I literally cut a black bustier off this top Similar Here just to rock the over sized cuff trend. How do you think it turned out? I kept the accessories minimal yet each item really gets to shine. More on this look Below![/dahz_framework_column][/dahz_framework_row]
Sometimes waiting on great food can cause a deadly RBF so I ordered a Mimosa!
Days like this I miss New York Its been a while since I’ve had a great Mimosa, their entirely to good and not hard to get down. Rye definitely has a great selection of drinks and after a bit of champagne I’m ready for some bomb french toast. Now no one beats my aunt Doris french toast there’s something about home cooked meals and the preparation that’ll make a heart smile but Rye’s cut it close. [/dahz_framework_column][dahz_framework_column width=”1/2″]
How to make my signature Mimosa/Sangria recipe:
- D’Asti Prosecco (pour in glass first)
- Peach Schnapps (add fruit to soak overnight)
- Fresh Raspberries & Oranges
- Distilled Rose Water (Optional For Hydration)
- Pure Orange Juice (pour in last)
Days like this are when I exude the best parts of myself. I people watch, prepare more content for you guys, I laugh, smile and even in the midst of a sudden thought I drown in emotion only to be my own net capturing myself. I take accountability that internal self care is also given away at the expense of wanting to gift it upon others who either don’t have it yet or cant handle the upkeep. I hold myself responsible of my connection to life and the lines I myself have crossed. Hunger wants us to have many things but internal self care encourages us to need ourselves.
“You Make A striking first impression”-Waitress
In the midst of grabbing my things a women 6 ft tall stands along side me and her lips flutter “You make a striking first impression”. My natural response is to quickly say thank you but I stepped back stuck in a trance for more then a few seconds absorbing her words. I needed to hear this because love and its imbalances brought questioning over myself that wouldn’t have felt the power in such a statement. After exchanging compliments with the waitress (A Holy Soul) I leave Rye Restaurant satisfied replaying the highlights of once again another beautiful day.

Self Care & What it means to me
I feel Trauma is often found in layers It should constantly be met with hands ready to peal them. Pealed by those who take the time to watch you sort, sift and remove it from over your life. First you must see the value in your own lives and do not replace your ability to do the work for yourself with the codependency of those who lovingly support you. Do not allow someone to make you a quitter but allow yourself the space to assess the role you want to ascend to in your life and the value you hold in theirs. Your passion to relentlessly be happy will inspire someone to do it for themselves. Do not stop pealing! It’s silly to think you’ll be doing it alone and we don’t give ourselves enough credit for what we have managed to survive without the help of anyone. Self care means that I’ve decided to recognize , quarantine, recharge and impact my world with the results of my healed wounds. A simple brunch became a moment in my catalog of life that i’ll never forget.
How do you identify the intentions you have for yourself?
