Take Time To REST. ..Take a Time Out for YOU!!
I just don’t see how some people do it .. ripping & running all the time. Every time you turn around they got something to do, somewhere to go, somebody to go meet, an event to attend, parties, extracurricular activities, lunch dates, dinner dates, church outings .. just some of everything throughout the entire week! I mean the whole 7 days they are BUSY and on the go!! I couldn’t do it! As a matter of fact, I won’t do it. I just c a n n o t .. Last week was the longest but busiest week I’ve seen so far this year!! My only rest day was on Sunday & really that was just half of a rest day because the boys had baseball practice. When I say I had something to do every single day and most days it was a number of things.. that is exactly what I mean! It’s a good thing that I don’t live in a big busy city because my Lord, I don’t think I would make it! That type of life is not for me, especially after having kids.
Really though, I love my space entirely too much. I enjoy being in the comfort of my own home junky or not. I love my quiet private time. I love people but I also love having time to myself too. I love being able to slow down and just relax! I love taking mental breaks and doing nothing. I love my chill days man! Seriously, it’s nice to have time to rest, regroup, renew my mind and get some things done that I want to do without having to rush.

This coming up weekend still seems so far away, geeeez 😏😂 but I can assure you that I have a few people trying to occupy my weekend already! haha. I’ve politely declined. 🙂 No offense but I’m determined to RELAX & I refuse to feel guilty about it! I’m not making myself go anywhere at all unless I really want to. It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself and make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary!👌😘 Learn to take time for you! You can’t get things done the way you want to when you’re overwhelmed with the stress of being too busy. It eventually gets frustrating. It’s okay to step back sometimes and just enjoy being your own company. I’m not the most balanced person.. I’m balanced but kind of like an unorganized type of balanced if that makes sense hahaha! that’s okay too! I suck at balancing my life like it should be balanced but one thing is sure.. The key to keeping your balance, regardless of how organized it is, is knowing when you’ve lost it.
Self Care.. take care of you!
