Sometimes, we forget to take some time off for ourselves.
After moving back home temporarily and taking some buffer time to get myself back on my feet, I found myself losing hours of sleep to get everything done. I eventually went searching through the boxes that I have yet to unpack (still…) for the agenda that I gave up using in university. I gave it a kiss and promised with my pinky, middle finger, and thumb that I would never leave it ever again. I sat down one morning a couple of weeks ago and whipped it back into shape. Today, it is literally my life saver. I started getting everything done and it started helping me realize that I am pretty impressive for what I’m capable of doing. Of course, as I realized that life is imperfect, I also just realized that I haven’t blogged in a week, which comes to my point that time is a fragile thing.
Sometimes, life moves so fast that we forget that there are FAR MORE important things than just getting your to-do list checked off and working your ass off. Yes, the feeling of accomplishment is one of the best feelings anyone can ever feel and life is always going to offer you opportunities to feel that way. But, when you begin to feel burnt out and disconnected from your loved ones, nothing will ever measure out to your accomplishments.
Today was my day to just put everything down and reset myself for more packed weeks ahead. A nice slow morning and tons of food with an old friend (that included all-you-can-eat barbecue and bakery hopping!!!) to catch up was what I needed to feel recharged again.
So, take a moment – are you doing anything for YOURSELF lately?
love & light,
