Shore Up: a free course in self-care

Lately, does it seem like the world is a complete tire fire?

It does to me. So many of my friends are in the trenches. I’ve been dealing with some really difficult personal stuff.

I mean honestly. Most of the time I feel like:

I am tired. I am done.

And to add insult to injury, everywhere I turn I see and hear what I need to fix about myself.

Unrealistic beauty standards, endless advertisements and “fitspiration”.

As our messy, uncensored lives play out, we only see carefully curated social media versions of other people’s lives.

These seemingly perfect images make us think that we aren’t enough.

“If she can do it, why can’t I? Why can’t I be happy, not yell at my kids, have willpower, an immaculate house, and always have a gorgeous latte at hand?”

If you’re like me and many of my close friends, you’re feeling fragile, depleted, and on edge.

We are in serious need of repair.

Y’all, we gotta shore up.

Bolster. Fortify. Hold. Sustain. Support. Reinforce. Uphold.
It is high time for some serious self-care.
And I don’t mean the capitalist flavor of self-care that looks like bubble baths or buying a new lipstick.

I mean self-care like:

  • Learning how to say no. Trusting your own right timing.
  • Gratitude. Realizing what’s going right and how awesome you already are.
  • Reclaiming your body and the space you take up in the world. Standing in your power and agency.
  • Reclaiming your mental energy and focus as you let go of the things that no longer serve you.
  • Nourishment. Eating like you’re worth it.
  • Inquiry. Approaching yourself with curiosity and compassion.
  • Rest. Pausing to restore. Taking the time to shore up against the storms that will surely come later this year.

Sound good? I thought it might.
