As promised, here is a little Sunday treat for y’all 🙂
I’ve always been a very ambitious person. I like to plan a million and one things for my day (maybe I accomplish about 10 of them if I’m lucky lol). But what I’ve recently realized is that if you keep going through life at warp speed, then eventually you will burn yourself out.
Since coming home, I’ve had to restart my old life and it seems like I picked up right where I left off. Stressed and overwhelmed. I need to take it easy and honor my body (as well as its limits). Sometimes things won’t go as you planned and you have to readjust your strategy. And it’s OKAY.
I tend to be really hard on myself at times. If I don’t complete everything that I set out to then I feel dejected and like I failed. But what’s so wrong with failing? Isn’t there learning in everything? There most certainly is. Failure means that we’re living. None of us are perfect. We just need to do the best that we can every day. And if today didn’t go so well, there’s always tomorrow to start over.
Lately, I’ve been placing way too much pressure on myself by trying to be superwoman. But I know that I need to take care of myself because no one else can do that for me. Maintaining good health is extremely important. Money can buy a lot of things but health is not one of them. It all comes down to balance. And also honoring your limitations and allowing yourself to rest and PLAY. Adults need to have more fun in their lives 🙂
So, I’ve decided that instead of becoming angry and upset with myself when I’m not able to do everything that I wanted to, I will be proud of myself for what I WAS able to do. Let’s focus on the positives and be loving towards ourselves. My health definitely comes first and I’m taking it one step at a time. Eventually I’ll reach my destination but it’s all about the journey anyways.
And to all of you out there, please take care of yourselves and don’t forget to have some fun!
I’m taking off next week but a new blog will be posted on December 2nd.
Also, I want to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family 😉
