A Celebration of Self

Self-care is a struggle for many of us. We focus so much on getting through school, achieving our career goals, and having (and then looking after) our families, only squeezing in time for ourselves to exercise, travel, socialize, etc. almost as an after thought. We owe this work ethic to the culture around us, sacrificing ourselves for those around us as if it makes us more successful, but the reality is that we do better, and we are better, if we look after ourselves first.

Bright Future

It’s December, and I hope you’re watching the snow falling outside. Your eyes drift often to the ski hill as you wonder how it is up there.
