For the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be participating in August Moon prompts from Kat and Meredith, the same folks who helped bring us #reverb12.
Today’s prompt is:
Welcome to August Moon 13!
How have you treated yourself this year?
Have you kept your intentions?
Man. Today, this is particularly difficult for me. Yesterday was a doctor’s appointment. Today was a sky-high blood pressure reading. It is patently obvious that I have not been treating myself well this year. There was a brief period of time when I felt like everything was coming together. I was intentional about taking care of myself. I was working on getting myself together. Exercising. Eating right. Writing. Taking photos. Maintaining clear boundaries. Believing in myself. Being kind to myself.
And then it all fell apart and I’ve slipped into patterns that are destructive for me.
That has to change. Hopefully I have taken steps these past two weeks to get myself back to where I am prioritizing caring for myself because my health won’t hold up much longer if I don’t.
