Happy 2021, everyone!
I ended 2020 doing a lot of inner work –– reviewing the year, realigning my thoughts & goals, organising my Trello boards and listening to self-improvement podcasts.
Looking back at the past year, I have neglected my self-care a whole lot. The only time I went out is to run brand errands in a rush; I hung out with my various group of friends only once or twice in 3 months... maybe it's Covid, perhaps it's me being a homebody.
So, I have decided that I will take myself out on solo dates weekly in 2021! The thought of dressing up for myself, going out and chilling makes me excited! I hope I can keep this up through the year.
Since we are at the topic of self-care, let me share some good reads that I have come across in my journey to rediscover the definition of self-care.
