My safe space means protecting my peace.

Do you shut everyone out?

Do you have a routine?

How do you protect your peace?

My Safe space has changed in so many ways, as I’ve gotten older. My safe space is just allowing myself the freedom to just be me.

I have the permission to just be myself, to not let anything hinder the real me from getting out and to be comfortable in where I am and who I am.

Oftentimes, like this, I always think about how situations or traumatic experiences really impact people. Sometimes I forget that I am one of those people, not just the people that I’m helping. I sometimes forget that even though I am a giver, and I am sympathetic and empathetic to others, that I deserve to have a face-to-face with myself and a time to relax and become my own safe space.

Maybe you’re like me?

Maybe you’re busy helping others that you sometimes forget about yourself?

If that is you? I want to let you know that you have a right to have your own space.

Create your own space that lends a time and a moment just for you. I want to let you know that you do not have to be on all the time.

Allow yourself to grow, allow yourself to feel, allow yourself to be.

Let me tell you about my safe space and what it includes. Maybe it can help you, because it’s very simple. I’m a simple girl for the most part.

I include morning affirmations and prayer, just to give me that start in the morning.

I create time for myself. I may be doing work for my job or doing other things on my to-do list, but I never neglect personal “me” time. It’s a must to stay sane!

Last, I always make sure I am able to feel comfortable telling people NO! Even if that means creating that safe space of time for myself to reflect, or just relax. I make time for what I need to make time for and enjoy my life. It’s okay to not be the superhero in everyone’s story.

You once again can not be everything for everyone and not for yourself!

Your safe space is all about creating an environment that you can thrive in.

This year has gotten the best of us emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially. We’ve all had to face things that we’ve never gone through before and it’s tough.

I want to let you know that I am here with you. I stand with you. Priority of your mental health

matters, and you matter.

Make room for your own safe space because you deserve it.
