Most nights I get into bed and can’t remember the rote process of washing my face because I’m just getting it done - mind whirling away replaying the things I’ve accomplished that day (yay!) and the things that need attention tomorrow (a little less yay!). I’m sure you’ve been there, too, taking care of yourself, but not taking care of yourself.
Here’s the truth. Life isn’t about either/or. You can be strong and soft.
You can embrace aging and want to age gracefully.
You can take care of others and take care of yourself.
Your skin can protect you and be vulnerable.
You can be subtle and striking.
And you should!
