Then just stop thinking and go ahead. And to keep going, and believe in yourself until you reach your goals and dreams. So I’ve put together a collection of the best self care quotes I’ve found.

For once, kiss your partner on the forehead and tell them you need a date alone with only yourself tonight if you want.
