Just because it’s self-care doesn’t mean it has to be solitary. Sometimes the best self-care is time spent in conversation with a good friend. As long as it recharges (as opposed to drains) you, it counts. When it comes to time and self-care, I like to think of it in three ways – as something to take, something to give, and something to receive.
The key was allowing myself to think big. And knowing that this wasn’t just about me. This was about decolonizing the bath and body aisle. About building a team of kickass jefas in support of an entire Nopalera community. About creating a high-end Latina brand that challenges mass-market expectations.
