No Time for Self Care

No Time for Self Care

I was transitioning from one yoga pose to the next, noticing the soreness and immobility that had grown from my own neglect.  I'm sorry, I whispered to my body. I'm sorry I got caught up in other things. Let's make this better... I'd been so busy tending to my work, my loved ones, and my home, that I'd put my body last on the list of things to take care of.
