JOIN THE ME-TIME CHALLENGE SAY GOODBYE TO STRESS
Hello, it's your Girl JA Nursing here, Shake what your mama gave you it's a new day. Especially with all the disturbing news over the past couple of days, I wanted to check in with you. I just came back from vacation but I came back to a lot of new changes in my life and a shortfall in my passion. So I thought to get back at it again with this blog. Forgive me for my selfishness, but me time has to be started asap. I find that I spend so much time on others that I literally forget about myself, even my vacation was focused on others and then I got sick while in Jamaica. I don't know about you but by Wednesday my body screams for me time. It's time to rediscover alone time without feeling guilty; not only does alone time help you get in touch with your mental wellness but it is a true way of rebuilding on your thoughts.
