I’ve been pushing myself really hard. Staying up until midnight every night, working through hangings-out with friends, constantly perusing my to-do list. Push push push. Go go go.
Launching my Big New Things this week really put me over the top.
So today, instead of posting a dance video, I’m giving myself permission…
Permission to rest.
Permission to relax.
Permission to stop striving.
Permission to just be.
Permission to read something non-business related.
Permission to CHILL OUT for a few days.
Because, here’s the thing:
The world won’t stop turning if I go to bed early instead of working. Life as I know it won’t end if I spent a few days resting. And if I really want to create a joyful, soulful business, then I need to be 100% me when I’m creating it, and not some strung-out, zombie-brained, droopy-eyed mess of exhaustion.
In spite of all of my reading and journalling and chatting and posting about self-care, I’m still driven to push push push. Suffering under the burden of Never Enough. But practice is what counts, I hear, and this weekend I resolve to practice:
Practice doing things on a whim.
Practice being light.
Practice being easy.
Want to practice with me? What will you be doing this weekend to care for yourself? What will you give yourself permission to do?
(I’ll be back on Monday to see how it went!)
