Be a Self-Care Revolutionary in Our Communities

To be a revolutionary, you must be inspired. A revolutionary person fearlessly advocates radical change. Revolutionary people and ideas challenge the status quo and might be violent or willing to upset the natural order to achieve their goals.

Like the word revolve, it’s all about turning things around. Revolutionary leaders want to change the world by any means necessary. Before he was the coolest face on a T-shirt, Che Guevara was ready to die for change in South America (and in fact, he did). You don’t need to be violent to be revolutionary, as we learn from Gandhi and Rev. Martin Luther King

A Self-Care Revolutionary is constantly bombarded by reasons not to take care of herself, attacked by familiar, self-sabotaging habits, and surrounded by rules that don’t support you taking care of yourself. But we fight to take care of ourselves anyway.

It’s not enough to be an activist just for others, you must also be a self-care revolutionary for yourself. As a community activist, I am committed to contributing to a revolution that helps people heal and feel empowered to heal themselves, to help create the balance of caring for ourselves so that we can better care for others. This is the challenge of a true Self-Care Revolutionary.

You need to be healthy and to check in with yourself spiritually, emotionally, economically, physically, educationally and socially to be a self-care revolutionary committed to the community.

Don’t give up on yourself. Be brave and adapt a self-care lifestyle so you can continue to be present and to be what’s good in this world.
