Beginning my Sacred Self-Care journey

Recently I wrote about taking a self-care week, since then I had been looking for something more. Something structured. Then low and behold on my instagram feed there it was…

I’ll admit, the goddess thing isn’t my style. Especially the combination of “sacred” and “goddess” together… I’ll refer you to an episode from The Fat Feminist Witch why I find some of this problematic, as she has some interesting points.

Anyway. It seemed like perfect timing. It’s an 8-week course, at a decent price, and includes an self-care oracle deck that I had been considering previously. So a day before the deadline, I signed up.

In these first few days, we’re introducing ourselves to the group — which is rather large, but not intimidating at all because it means we’re all likely to find at least one person to connect with.

I’m hoping that this course helps instill a routine of self-care into my life. Something that turns it into a habit. What I’m not looking for is surface level positivity, all rainbows and sunshine. That’s not real. Nor is it healthy, either.

I’m looking forward to cutting the ties that have been holding me back. Tending to scars. And just reaffirming that even though flawed, I’m still strong and still amazing. I won’t let anything or anyone ever convince me otherwise.

The past several months have almost been strange. I feel good — healthy, strong, confident… happy. Maybe strange is the wrong way to phrase it. But it definitely feels like a change. A very positive change. It’s one of those things where you didn’t realize something was missing or off about your life until suddenly things just click and you feel… well, you feel like the most you you’ve been in a while.

Have you done a self-care course?
