I am writing to you from my quarantine temple. While I have been at home almost all the time, trying to not get overwhelmed by what's going on and sucked down in a rabbit hole of anxiety or hopelessness, I have been giving my beloved toys more attention than usual. They are serving me so well, especially now. Rightfully so, of course.

And I want to tell you something: fuck that!
I deeply think and moreso feel that a life based on authenticity, vulnerability and honesty is the way to go for your soul, heart, body and mind to thrive and grow. It´s the key to true connection (with self and others) and belonging.
When you are triggered or in need of Self-Care there are many options to come back to yourself, get grounded, feel your feelings, release tension, anxiety, stress and tension.
On the top of my list: solo-sex.
The holiday season is a difficult time for many people where self-care and self-love can get lost in celebrations, the pressure to buy presents and fulfil family obligations. It might be also a challenging time for those who are alone, don´t do any celebrations or miss community around them. This sheet might offer stories and strategies, as well as inspirations and empowerment to love and care for ourselves in whatever way feels good for who we are.
