Be Kind to Yourself
Be kind to yourself. It took me years to practice this. I forgave others faster than I would forgive myself. I made sure others had days off and vacations, when I couldn’t even remember the last time I had a day off. I pushed myself beyond what was ok.
Be kind to yourself. While it sounds silly, there are a lot of us out there who don’t do this. 🙋🏻♀️ We constantly check things off of our to do list hoping to wipe it out. But let me tell you a secret, there will always be a to-do list. Creating boundaries are essential. But more importantly is actually honoring them. I finally take a day off each week. No kidding, for me that is a big deal. What I learned by taking this day off and taking care of myself is that it allowed me to come back more creative. It’s ok not to be accessible to everyone 24/7. Honestly the world wouldn’t end if I didn’t take care of it that second.
Let me ask you this, are you being kind to yourself?
