The Self-Care Mission


CARD 10 SELF-CARE (three-cornered leek): What can you do today (and everyday) to show yourself some love and care?

Notes from the artist: These plants grow nearly all year in my garden. When the flowers come, they are quite delicate - it is almost impossible to make a bouquet with them because the blooms fade too quickly. When drawing this particular flower, I couldn’t help but notice how all the blooms were drooping -- all except one. The one bloom seemed to “ask” me if I was taking care of myself -- like it knew that I needed the reminder. In my notes that day, I wrote: “Isn’t it a good reminder that taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, spiritually is important in order to be able to fully show up for yourself and others too?”
