  1. Self-care is not selfish its mandatory!Think of it as the facemask on the airplane... you have to put yours on first before you help someone else. Same applies with self-care.
  2. Don’t ever stop fighting for yourself and your kids. If you don't fight for yourself, you’ll have less for your kids.
