Rabindranath Tagore said it a while back…”Jodi Tor Daak Shune Keu Naa Aashe Tobe Ekla Cholo Re”
Translates: If no one answers your call, you walk alone.
But walk you must. Keep moving. Follow your dreams. Take the first step and the next and the next and soon you will find your momentum. And then you will be unstoppable. And then nothing else will matter but your DREAM coming true.
Self care is what most of us avoid doing for the longest time until our body shows signs of over use and abuse. No matter what your age, establishing a daily self care routine meant just for yourself is like making a long term investment that will pay off beautifully as you grow older. You don’t have to buy expensive products. Walk into your kitchen and find a lemon, some sugar, a dollop of honey and that’s all you need to give yourself a nice facial scrub. Next, grab a piece of over ripe fruit (banana, strawberry, kiwi, cherry, apricot, peach), mash the pulp, dab it over your face that you just scrubbed clean. Leave the fruit mask on for 20 min, then wash with cold water. And while you were waiting for the mask to work it’s natural magic into your skin don’t forget to sip a cup of herbal tea, read a book, bite into a yummy gluten free fruit filled macaron or just doze off …in whichever order it feels right!!
Feels good, huh!! That’s all self care is about, giving your body the attention it deserves!

About California Blooming Beauties:
Welcome to my tiny backyard flower farm tucked in a quiet residential area in Sacramento, CA.
It is where I bloom happily among the flowers I grow with a bit of love and lots of creative energy. Working in my garden allows me to appreciate life and give back. It is here that I can work yet be still, practice living in the now and stand in complete awe of the magic that surrounds me.
What drives me is the wish to leave behind a clean footprint on earth, something to be cherished long after I am gone.
Watching the sunset from my backyard I often soak up the feeling of gratitude that follows and allow the wonderful things that are waiting to manifest while letting go of the things that no longer serve me.
Am grateful for:
- this amazing, enigmatic, miraculous, constantly unfolding and infinitely abundant life.
- my three wonderful children and a caring, thoughtful, intelligent, hard working son-in-law
- the most beautiful 9 month old grand baby boy
- my job as an IT professional at a School District and the fact that the work I do directly or indirectly supports students and teachers every day of their lives.
- the sweet comfort of my home
