Self Care as a Single Woman

Today I went and got a pedicure then I cried. I cried because it's been a long time since I've really done self care. Self care is important and is necessary. Yes I keep my hair done but that's about it. If I'm neglecting parts of myself as a single what will I do when I'm married and/ or a mother? As preparation for marriage you have to constantly self evaluate and reflect. This is the time to be selfish but it's also time to learn how to serve and submit. To some this seems superficial but honestly, it is important to take care of yourself. If you don’t take care of yourself then how will you take care of yourself let alone help your family when married.


Do you take care of self? Your body is a temple and you should ask like such. As I sit here and think about everything I wonder do I truly take care of myself. I'm not talking about the basic things like shower everyday and clean clothes or even clean glasses but the deeper things like when was the last time I exfoliate, waxed\shaved\bleached? are my nails cleaned, buffed, and shaped? Do I have moisturized skin? Is my body alkaline? Have you had some green veggies? Do you cook healthy meals.
