Ever have thoughts like these?
Ever feel like this?
Well I think I may have one possible solution for you. (and me as well!)
And that solution is this:
GIVE YOURSELF A DAMN BREAK
I said it!
Let your hair down.
Set aside some time (on your calendar even!) and just rest.
We all need rest.
And most likely, if you’re reading this right now, you’ve been too hard on yourself. (Beating yourself up, perhaps.)
Maybe you’re doing way too much. You’re overwhelmed.
You’ve been going, going, going. Non-stop.
You feel out of control.
And you know what?
It’s time to give yourself a break.
Think about something you want to do SO badly, but you never “have the time.”
- Finally getting that pedicure.
- Getting your hair styled.
- Going for a massage.
- Taking a bubble bath (wine, anyone?!)
- Making time to shave them legs! (I know I put this off b/c of time crunch, but it feels so nice to be cleanly shaven. Don’t skip out anymore!)
- Going for a walk, breathing in all the fresh morning air.
Whatever the case, make time for yourself. This is also called self-care
You may be a mommy, a wife, a busy student, or you might just work such crazy hours you feel you don’t even have enough time in the day for the ‘important tasks.’
Well I’m here to tell you that you’ll never have the time unless you make the time.
Create amazing time with yourself. Care for yourself.
You’ll feel better. You’ll feel happier. You’ll be more fun to be around.
Win the day.
Take a time-out.
Buy a treat. And eat it. Have it all to yourself. And no sharing! (This is your time.)
Take a breather. And stop taking life so seriously.
There’s beauty everywhere. Choose to see it today.
I love you forever and always,
