I grew up knowing about self-care because of my mother. We moved from Puerto Rico to Orlando, Florida when I was just four years old. While we made many friends that became family throughout the years our closet relatives were about four hours away. Not having family nearby made it difficult for my mom to have “ME” time. Yet, she made it happen and I believe the way she loved and cared for herself helped her be the best mother she could be to my brother and me.
