Sooooo life happens! Much to my dismay I realized it’s been a whole MONTH since I posted in my blog!!!
So many feelings came up for me!! OMG I let my people down! Holy Shi*t what are people going to think?! Ughhhhh I’m a failure!!!!
Hmmmmm does any of this sound familiar?!?!?
We are often our own worst critic! I know for sure I am!! My ego is STRONG and continues to try to tell me things to derail me and keep me playing small (thanks a LOT ego!)
The thing is. . .no matter what is going on in our lives, it’s ALWAYS OK to begin again. To start over. To have a fresh start.
I have had a myriad of family issues and things that have been challenging to deal with this last few weeks that have prevented me from doing what “I THINK I should be doing”. And really when it comes down to it, that’s all my ego talking.
There are no hard and fast rules to how to live my life. And the same goes for you.
How often do we put expectations on ourselves that cause us stress and anxiety???
Ultimately, at the end of the day, the most important things that matter are our families, our relationships, and those who we care about. It really is all about love. Period. And that includes loving yourself!
I know I for one have spend years neglecting my own needs. Feeling guilty for taking the time I needed to nurture and care for myself when it was needed. This was the WORST mistake I could have ever made.
I routinely put the needs of others before myself. Mainly out of a feeling that my needs weren’t important.
Well I’m here to tell you that YOUR NEEDS ARE IMPORTANT!!!!!
You are WORTHY of self care and nurturing! We all are!
So as my first reaction was to feel guilt for “not doing what I should” when it comes to writing my blog, I am now sitting here knowing that I actually took time to care for me. And that’s OK.
So if you happen to be reading this, know that you are valuable. Your health and happiness matter. And you deserve to take care of yourself. Even if it means missing deadlines or forgoing obligations.
I’m NOT implying that we should bail or not be impeccable with out word, however, I AM saying that when things come up (as often they do) it’s OK to give yourself some space and grace! It’s OK to not be all things to all people!
Love on yourself a little more. You deserve it!
