Self Care Isn't Selfish

I had the pleasure of being a guest contributor for the incredible organization, To Write Love on Her Arms, this week. TWLOHA empowers young people to believe that they have a unique role to play in this world and provides hope to those struggling with depression, self harm, and suicide. I love their message: Your story matters. You are not alone. No one else can play your part. 

For my guest post, I thought I’d talk about a lesson I continue to learn over and over again - that being your most creative, brilliant and productive self means making a consistent habit of rest and play. That our dreams demand the best of us, so we need to take care of ourselves when we go after them. That self care isn’t selfish, and rest is not weakness.
