I've been feeling a little bit burnt out lately. I have a long list of crafts to make, and books to read, and dinners to plan, and... I haven't been thinking much about what I really need. So in the midst of this, these other wise ladies posted their thoughts:
Sometimes the hardest thing is to do nothing, to take a break and breathe. I push myself to stay up late to finish projects, or bring them with me to work on during my lunch. I need to invest in myself. There is only one me, and I need to take care of myself so I can be a better caretaker for my family. No one likes being grouchy, or losing their temper. I will be gentle with myself, I will leave time to exhale, and I know a little investment in myself is the best thing for everyone.
I am going to start a practice of slowing down, and being. To allow myself to be the imperfect creature that I am. To accept myself as the imperfect creature that I am.
