Happy Self-Care Sunday!
Manicures and massages are great ways to treat ourselves and seem to have become a standard part of our collective self-care plan. I am on the path of making self-care a lifestyle instead of thinking of it as a set of activities. Music is an essential part of my life and lifestyle. Music is self-care for me – from record collections to cassette tapes to creating compilation tapes to compact discs to burning my own CDs to an iPod to cellphone music to Pandora then to Spotify.
I will not force my religious beliefs on you, but there are times when I will share my faith because it is important to me. I remember the last time I was physically in a church building in March 2020. As a result virtual church service, gospel playlists, and my relationship with God have carried me victoriously through this pandemic.
Victory was my word for 2020. Completion is my word for 2021. I created playlists for both.
In addition to a playlist of hymns, I have also created a playlist to affirm my faith, uplift my spirit, and focus on manifestation. I want to share my ‘Expect Miracles’ Spotify playlist with you. Access the playlist HERE.
