“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence,
it is self-preservation, and that
is an act of political warfare.”- Audre Lorde
In the face of today’s state of the world, many women I know are either giving in to negativity and hopelessness, or working nonstop at their own expense to make the world a better place.
Both giving in to negativity and hopelessness, and not engaging in self-care, leave us unable to do the work we were put in the world to do.
How might you feel differently and treat your time differently if you saw staying hopeful and positive and engaging in self-care as an act of political warfare?
What will you do today to take care of yourself and find a piece of joy no matter how the elections turn out?
