Dear Weary Soul –
If you’re waiting for someone else to show up and tell you to take a rest, you might wait a loooong time.
This is a hard one but here goes… It’s time to take charge of yourself…take charge of your rest, your health, your priorities, your choices, your yes’s and your no’s. It’s time to take charge of what’s enough and what’s too much.
You are a human being with a body and a mind and a soul…and all your parts need rest just like you need food and water. It’s not something you can deprive yourself of day after day and week after week without becoming a tired and diluted version of yourself who has too much to do to ever do your best at ANYTHING.
And that’s not who you are, is it?
Stopping for rest is self-respect. It’s not a luxury…it’s not selfish. Just practice. You’re in charge.
You are so so loved.
