After an exciting weekend, going back into work on Monday can be rough. However, after scouring through social media, you may end up running across a positive affirmation that is exactly what you need to get focused and motivated to start your week off right.

[post_ads]Selfloveangel, whose real name appears to be Emya, posted a unique message on Instagram on Sunday about self care — and trust us, it is the perfect pick-me-up post to read before downing your first cup of morning joe.

The photo she posted includes four fair-skinned women, from their torsos down to their mid-shins, posed side by side in gray biker shorts and matching sports bras. Each has body-positive, aspirational words such as “abs of steel” and “squat master” written on their stomach or thighs.

While the photo is what initially lures you in, it’s the powerful yet down-to-earth caption that makes it worth the read. Selfloveangel writes, “Self care isn’t always pretty, it’s not always candles and a bathtub full of roses; sometimes it’s forcing yourself to get out of bed and dragging yourself, sometimes it’s the pep talk you give to yourself or the quick cry in the corner.”
A few lines later, she concludes, “Self care isn’t always pretty, but it’s so worth it.”

Not only do her words reveal the other side of self care, but they also remind us that, at the end of the day, we are pushing forward to be the best version of ourself.

Instead of hitting snooze three times or attempting to double up on espresso, screenshot this message and pull it back out whenever you need an extra kick for those tough Monday mornings.
