How you speak to yourself,
when no one is around.
How you speak about yourself,
when someone is listening.
Is the tone of voice that will resound
in every part of your life.
It’s probably very inconvenient to feel the need for rest in the middle of the day. To feel you want to stretch your legs, breath some fresh air, when you’re in the middle of a meeting.
You could take a moment in the bathroom, stand up for a bit, open a window.
It can be very frustrating to feel you don’t want to do anything at all and actually give yourself that break, with two kids – a full laundry basket – unanswered friend requests – dying plants – last years summer pics begging for your attention.
You could take a moment in the bathroom, lay down for a nap (kids for the tellie), take a day off to recharge your energy, ask for help.
But you say you don’t have time to rest, or you simply “can’t because”. You’re to busy and don’t have time for yourself. So… what you basically are saying is that you’re not important enough?
Read that again.
You’re saying that you’re not important enough.
The one person you really gotta live with – isn’t important enough for you to make time for.
Your work is important to you. Your kids are. A nice home, healthy meals, your friends and family; they’re all important to you.
You want to get them done, give your attention to it, do the best you can for it because it matters to you. Because you care.
You’re loving and awesomely amazing. The world needs more people like you. But the way you’re doing it now, isn’t actually working if it means you get anxious over everything you still need/want to do and feel you got no time/space to do whatever you truly feel like doing.
You’re right when you think a lot of it wouldn’t be done without you doing it. It does all starts with you.
You do matter way more than you give yourself credits for.
But let’s put things back in the right perspective here;
If you really want to give and do the best you’ve the offer – you need to have the energy, love, focus and patient to do so.
What do you need at this moment, to be fully present later?
Yes… now go give yourself that.
I’m cheering for you!
Be a cheerleader for that friend – share the encouragement;
