Am I crazy or are we not working a whole lot more when we’re at home?
It’s all very real and sometimes a real drag. Home and yet not feeling so homey. What’s with that? Not sure about you but naps are my thing. I LOVE my bed and all the cozy things about it.
But for a minute now, my bed and I haven’t been vibing like we use to.
Has your mind been almost constantly in a state of overdrive? You’re relentlessly tidying up, disinfecting, sanitizing, and checking in with family and friends. And if you’re still employed or have a business to run, you’re expected to keep your pace and hold everyone down.
All that, while navigating new tools, technologies, programs, and shifts in consumer behaviors. Whew, chile!
Everyone wants your attention; your dog, your kids, your lover, your job. So, where is all this leaving you? Burnt out and tired most likely.
Are you good? When last have you really checked? Like…really?
It's probably also crossed your mind, “If I stop, what’ll happen then? Everything will stop.”
The breaking point for me happened when I started resenting everything and everyone that wanted a piece of me. I was starting to feel like a failure and utter letdown.
It sucked terribly when I felt judgy stares from my furbaby, Nova. It was as though she was saying, “Girl, get your shit together for goodness sakes!”
I’m here to tell you Wonderwoman, you don’t have to ask for permission to take care of yourself.
Everyone is weathering the storms of their life best they can. That is really all we can do. Nobody knows what tomorrow, next week, next month, or even next year will bring.
Truth is, WE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.
I dare you to carve out two, three, or 7 days out of your routine for feel-good activities.
Try something new or indulge in something that electrifies you. It doesn’t matter. The only goal for this challenge is to get back to feeling really good.
It’s a relationship-building act with the sole goal of pleasuring yourself! Now…doesn’t that sound like something we need more of…? Pleasure! Pleasure! Pleasure!
Go a few rounds with BOB (your battery-operated boyfriend), go running, swim, write, game, paint, or whatever.
Go crazy but be safe!
1. In what ways do you express love to yourself?
2. How does it make you feel when you put your needs first?
♡ Much, much love.
