Dani and I were talking about this week and I feel like its a conversation we all need to hear/have.
This past week has been H-A-R-D for both of us. It’s been a season of transition for us. As I am sure you all know, whenever you are going through a transitional season, it gets hard for you to do things.
We were both struggling with showing up for ourselves and for others. We were beating ourselves up about it because we felt like we were being “loafs” for taking moments to lay in bed or on the couch. Time that we NEEDED. We needed to chill TF out cause its been emotionally hard.
But instead of actually chilling out, we were becoming more stressed because we felt guilty for taking time for ourselves. Read that again. We felt GUILTY for giving ourselves time to recharge.
I’m sorry. What.
Why do we do this to ourselves?! Like its not a prize to be the most busy or most stressed out but for SOME DANG REASON we think it is.
All of this to say. We need to cut this out. If you’re in a season of hard IT’S OKAY to take extra time to yourself. It’s going to take longer to fill your cup when you’re going through it. Take some time. Fill your cup up. Give yourself some dang grace.
