This picture hit me today as a reminder that I don’t have to make every change I want to all at once. And once in awhile its ok for me to step back and take care of myself – the world doesn’t fall apart when I do. In fact, doing this makes me stronger.
Today I gave in to the fatigue and allowed myself to rest today and pushed away the guilty feelings and the shameful thoughts that accompany them. I reminded myself of how much I had been doing and doing well and that it’s ok to just relax. And it didn’t feel like a low mood at all – just a day of no commitments or responsibility and it was exactly what I needed.
