Is worry your love language?
Worry is NOT love.
Worrying and love are two different things and one is not a condition to the other. Worry only makes love feel heavier, wouldn’t you agree?
I know we all believe to some degree that love without worry is not love. But that’s just a myth, that keeps us hooked to worry. Think about it, love with worry makes you be controlling. It takes away so much ENERGY and TRUST from you and from the ones you are worrying about.

Self-care has to do two things for you: Give the brain a break and give the nervous system time to process and recalibrate. RESET.
What drained my energy last year…and what I’m doing about it.
I’m craving connection and presence.

Started going for walks, and then got too busy to continue?
Despite your best intentions of keeping to the goal, putting it in your calendar, telling others to keep you accountable…there was always something a bit more pressing.
If you are completely honest with yourself, while you would love to do those daily walks, deep inside you don’t believe it’s THAT important.
There is a strong built-in habit within you that has you convinced that if it is “just for you or about you”, it can wait.
