The Perfectly Imperfect Project: Real Self-Care
The Perfectly Imperfect Project was schemed up by Mara Glatzel and Tamarisk Saunders-Davies to shed light on the topics of self-love and self-care by asking gorgeous and grounded womenÂ that we admire to share their expereinces.
The back story: several months ago Tamarisk got on her soapbox about some of the myths and misconceptions that surround self-care. The necessity for this blog hop is steeped in the knowledge that we need to, as a community, expand and elaborate on the current conversation about self-care.
Our hope is to thicken the narrative to include each of our personal stories of how we strive to care for our bodies and our spirits, as well as the importance of coming from a place of heady self-love when doing so.
The premise is this: self-care is everywhere these days, and yet, many people seem to experience so much difficulty in being able to truly tend to their bodies and spirits. We wanted to boil down and distill the integral aspects of self-care, and engage in a conversation about the ways that we take care of ourselves on a daily basis.
Our hope is to inspire you as you begin cultivating self-care rituals of your very own – rituals overflowing with support, flexibility, and self-trust. We hope that this series encourages you to begin working with yourself, instead of against yourself.
What does your self-care really look like?Â
On a daily basis – what is the big, small, good, bad, and in between of your self-care?
What is the philosophy behind how you care for yourself?
What are your self-care struggles?
What do you wish everyone on this planet understood about what it means to care for yourself gently and kindly?
