This one's about self care when you don't have time AND when you feel guilty for taking it. And when you're sick and can't take a day off. And when you're tired of wondering what people are thinking of you because you're... sick again?....really?
Sometimes the hardest thing you can do is to let yourself be sick. You've got a life to live, deadlines to meet and people to take care of. But in the end, sick happens and I've learned that there is a way you can be sick and get through it without your life falling to pieces.
You're exhausted and burnt out. You need a break. A massage. Hell, you need a coach to get you through this slump, but you just can't right now. I totally get it. But there's a way to beat this 'feet in cement' mentality. Open up.
"She could never go back and make some of the details pretty. All she could do was move forward and make the whole beautiful."
On those days when you feel like you can't get out of bed, much less tackle your 'to-do' list, it's vital to take a closer look at what's really going on and what you really need to do to show up, give and not kill yourself doing it.
You’re worn out. You need things to work. You can’t handle anymore blows or challenges and you’re more than ready just get a break so you can get ahead of life instead of be suffocated by it. I know it doesn’t feel fair. (It's not) It’s like you’re already running on empty when more is asked of you day after day. In every area of life, you are simply spent and you just want a cosmic hand to reach down from the heavens and lift you out of it. Believe me when I say that I totally get it. A thousand times over, I get it. And I want to help you through it, even just for today.
