#DearMe

Happy International Women's Day!  Today, we are asked to give our younger selves some advice using the hashtag #DearMe.  My advice for young women everywhere is to to take better care of yourself.  That whole self-sacrificing thing is so over.  Take time to do something you love every day, even if it means you sometimes neglect something that seems important.  The other stuff can wait.  Honestly, most things have a way of taking care of themselves, so you should too.  Just relax and knit.
