Is it a buzzword that you're not really even sure what it means?   It is my goal with this podcast that you will love your people well… and a big part of that is loving YOURSELF well. Partly because you matter! But also, let's be honest, because loving ourselves helps us love others. We can give to our kids when we have the emotional energy to give. We can show patience, kindness, and compassion when we've first been filled up ourselves.    And a big part of that is self care.    So that's what we're talking about today, friend.
