When we make self-care first, we can be more present moms, supportive spouses, and less easily annoyed colleagues.
As we start this week, let’s focus on just what’s before us. Let’s plan to win this game, this week.
Funny thing, tonight I typed in 2021 and what returned were multiple images of people wearing masks. I couldn’t help think that masks are not new to 2021 or even 2020 for that matter.
