I'm always drawn to stories about healing, meditation, etc. In these challenging and uncertain times under this Administration I always have to remind myself about the importance of self-care. So many people around me, and including myself, are hurting physically, emotionally, etc because of all the emotions (anger, rage, sadness, fear, etc) we are feeling. Capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy have a hold on many of us and the impact is real; addiction, depression, anxiety, etc. Now more than ever it is important to take care and heal ourselves so we can then heal our families, heal our communities, and heal Mother Earth. "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."-Audre Lorde
