One of my #operationbeautiful notes from last year. The quote is a version of a mantra often recited during Loving-Kindness meditation.

It’s a new year, but that’s not the only reason I’m writing about self-care.
It’d be all too easy to just say that remembering to take care of myself (especially spiritually/emotionally) was just another one of my new year’s resolutions. But that’s only half-true.

Author’s Note: Since Day 14’s task was completed well before Day 14 ended, I’ve decided to publish this blog post dated as 10/26/12, even though the post was really published after midnight on 10/27/12. It was published after midnight due to unavoidable technical difficulties with my computer.
Today is the last day of the 14 Days program! I can’t believe it’s been two weeks already.
***Author’s note: Day 13’s task was technically completed a little after 12:00 am on Day 14; which is why this particular post’s publishing date is listed as 10/26/12.
I’ve decided to count down to the Georgia-Florida football game and an in-home spa day I have planned for my first Saturday off. I plugged in the start time and date of the college football game into a form on Timeanddate.com website. And now I’m watching the seconds tick off one by one towards the big game.
Day 12’s task was not successfully completed today. I didn’t really need to buy anything and I also had to work, which really cut into my shopping time. So unless you count buying gas from Kroger’s gas station and fast food from McDonald’s as “helping the local economy,” I really did fail at this task.
(By “local economy” I think Self magazine was referring to small, local businesses, not large franchises. )
