Dear Soulful Girl,
All you can do is all you can do.
It’s time to slow down, sweet friend. It is okay.
When you have done all that you can, please let it be enough. This means that when you have done all that you can while also getting enough sleep, exercise and time to recharge…this doesn’t mean getting all that you can done with 2 hours of sleep, a meal at a drive-through and running as fast as you can everywhere you go….feeling miserable, strung-out and cranky.
Life is as crazy and harried as we allow it to be.
When we want to make things special for those we love, we need to remember that what they want most is US. They want time with us. They want us to feel good and to be in a good mood and to be present. They want happy memories that include us. Sometimes this means that we must simplify so that we do not fall apart. Some times this means we need to let go of our idea of perfection and just show up AS IS.
So, please sit down with yourself and be realistic…
Prioritize and let some things go…it is ok. YOU matter. YOU are the best gift you can give. YOUR time, your heart, your words, your presence….THAT is the greatest gift.
You are so loved.
