As women, we push ourselves. To do more, be better, keep it all together, work harder. It’s exhausting.
And not healthy for us mentally, emotionally, physically, or spiritually.
I usually spend a lot of time wiring, editing, and re-editing this blog weekly. I’ve committed to doing it weekly and I have followed through on that commitment. For over 2 years.
This week has been different than most for me. It’s been one of the most stressful in my life that I can remember. Even more than last week if you read that post. I haven’t had time to process it all and write something coherent for you. I could try to push myself to do that, but I’m really tired, and I’m giving myself a break.
Sometimes you can’t do it all or keep it all together, and it’s perfectly okay.
My invitation to you is to find a place in your life where you deserve a break, and give it to yourself as a gift. Maybe it’s something you say no to because you don’t have the time or energy. Maybe it’s sleeping in a little longer. Maybe it’s letting the laundry go one extra day. Maybe it’s having that special coffee or ice cream because it’s been a rough week.
I’m writing a shorter blog post this week. I promise I’ll expand on what happened that caused me to take some time, but you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Now, if you need one, please go enjoy your own break.

If this struck you and you think, “I know one friend who would really like this”. Please forward it to them.
I love hearing from you.
