She Is Messy, But She’s Kind

I’ve been having a bit of a time lately. When I’m feeling wonky, my self-care regimen is truly put to the test, because my first instinct is to revert to not-so-healthy habits of relentless worrying and unproductive perfectionism. Not great.

But I’m a work in progress. I’m asking for (and accepting) help from people that love me. I’m eating a couple vegetables. And I’m learning to be ok with the ins-and-outs of being a beautiful, messy, emotional, grown adult lady. Here are a few of the things that are helping me stay centered and be kind to myself:

  1. Skipping a week of blogging when I need to
  2. The OBC recordings of Waitress, and Hamilton, and Next To Normal
  3. Lavender candles
  4. Food that tastes good/makes me feel good/is good for me
  5. Stranger Things
  6. Being ok with how many sweets I’m eating
  7. Cuddles with my dogs
  8. Pinterest
  9. Bikram Yoga
  10. Forgiving myself for missing Bikram because I thought it started at 10:30 not 10 and it’s an honest mistake, ok?
  11.  Peak-season tomatoes
  12. Writing lists

What do you all do to take care of yourselves? Do you have a favorite pop-culture comfort food? Or real comfort food? Tell me in the comments. Now go and hug someone you care about, drink a glass of water, and buy some good coconut oil, darling readers.

Love and theatre,
