I’m learning the importance of Self Care. As a mom it used to be that my mornings were dedicated to cleaning, cooking, and getting my son prepared for the day.
Now that time has passed and my son has gotten a bit older. I am mastering the skilled art of waking up before dawn, and spending time with myself.
Stretching, praying, worshipping, meditating on God’s voice of wisdom and guidance are all a part of how I do my morning self care.
I am also beginning to to incorporate things like washing my face, writing, and preparing anything that could make my day a bit more smooth. For instance if for whatever reason my meal prep has run out, or perhaps I didn’t complete meal prepping. I take this time to get it done.
I take time to pray for not only myself, but for those around me. For people I have come across, or things that have been placed on my heart. I pray for social media, and our country/world as a whole.
The one thing I love to say as soon as I wake up is “This is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24 I like to make this scripture personal by changing the word we to I.
If for whatever reason my attitude was not right. This alone helps to reshape my perspective.
Taking time out for me helps me to be, and become a much better person. I am ready for the day, and taking on my task become that much easier.
