I’ve learned it’s okay, soooo fukn okay to take breaks.
I’m tired this afternoon. There, I said it. It’s almost 2pm and I’m tired. I’ve HAPPILY & PRODUCTIVELY worked 14 hour days back to back. Have work multiple “hats” during that time, and now I’m tired.
I’m taking a break this afternoon.
And it’s okay.
I have no inner voice telling me, “I’d better do this or I will fall behind,” or “I’d better do that,” or “stop being lazy,” or any of that bullshit.
I have set free judgement.
I have set free this asinine idea that if I sit still or If I create some peace that I am wasting time.
Instead I know that if I want to continue to be HAPPY & PRODUCTIVE in my life, in my marriage, in my motherhood, in my friendships and in my business, I need breaks, re-charges, rejuvenations, disconnects, meditations….naps even!
Trying to PUSH my way through my obvious awareness that I need a break only breeds resentment, exhaustion, illness, detachment and poor performance 😉😉😉if ya know what i mean, in the long run.
Ok, I meant work performance….
Okay moving on.
I’ve been there.
Resentful. Exhausted. Ill. Detached.
Don’t like it.
Changed that part of my life/thinking.
I’ve nothing to prove.
Fireworks aren’t being set off for me when i don’t take breaks, if anything I’m burning my fuse towards a dud.
I don’t like being a dud.
I didn’t need a break the last few days.
Today I do.
So, I will honor what my body, my gift, is asking for and give back to it.
It gives me plenty, the least I can do is honor it.
