What a day!
I decided today to consciously be kind to myself by giving myself a break! Now I could have done better with this- haha! See it’s not easy for me to do- smh, but I think I did ok and I am glad I did it and so that alone is a success.
I allowed myself to take a nap, but I didn’t allow myself to sleep peacefully through it. I gave myself permission to slow down and it felt great but it was interspersed with thoughts of all I should have been doing! Ackkk! BUT I did do it a bit and when I was fully present and resting in the moment of conscious “chill mode” I really felt AT PEACE and I really liked it!
So I am going to try to do that a little bit more. Already I am thinking well, if you are going to give yourself relax time you have to make sure everything else is in order first or make this relaxation time be a reward for your work, not just relaxing in the middle of not getting things done! LOL! I have to least, at least I can HEAR the absurdity in my own head sometimes! More importantly I can see how hard I am being on myself and how I wouldn’t ever allow others to treat me that way (anymore) so why am I doing that to myself?!?
The very thought makes me want to be kinder to me.
I’m going to go upstairs and paint my nails and the WAIT- GULP- for them to dry. A reason I do not do them enough, I feel I can not sit and wait for them to dry because there are other things to do. But not tonight- I’m heading upstairs now- wish me luck! Hey, I can watch Tae Kwon Do videos while they dry since I have a Black Belt test coming up! That’s still relaxing isn’t it?!?
Have a MOTIVATED WEEK SCHOLARS,
YOU ARE LOVED,
