Create Joy

Self-Care Challenge

All are welcome

Join us in this challenge for finding time for you. I caught myself wrapped up in the auto-pilot of every day and everyone else’s needs and expectations of me, I threw on the brakes.

I was losing myself.

I couldn’t keep up with the pace of everyone’s needs and trying to keep my small business alive in the age of Covid-19. I felt like I was disappointing everyone including myself. I created this group out of sheer panic. One of my best friends called to say her small business was not going to make it. After a tearful conversation, and without thought, I went to my computer and created the “Create Joy Weekly Challenge” page. A private group on Facebook, I gave the reason, invited friends, and from the minute the first person shared a joyful picture, and indicated they had taken time for themselves, I felt like I could breathe. This group of amazing souls was going to hold me accountable to making the space to take care of me.

Self-care for me is, music and quiet, fresh air, watercolor painting and mixed media collage, for others it might be cooking, reading or writing or playing music, gardening, yoga or photography. Whatever that thing is that brings you joy… you MUST make time for it each week.
