We continue to praise overworking ourselves for a desired outcome instead of giving ourselves tender care when the need for a break has been identified. We often prioritize the needs of the world over our intentional & often necessary self-care; making it last on our priority list.
We owe ourselves fuller lives by ensuring “break times” BEFORE our bodies & our mental health require it from us. Because once our bodies start requiring it; it already too late.
This week, I affirm that—
I will be gentle to myself as I maneuver through the week.
I will be kind to others, but most importantly to myself, when things don’t go as planned.
I will give myself grace even when I feel undeserving of it.
I will take time to realign myself when I feel unbalanced & take heed to my needs.
I will remove myself from the things that do not serve me purpose & limit me from being my best self.
I will be deliberate in how I use my time & how I share my energy.
I will not engage in the things I know drain me but will make intentional efforts to engage in activities that fill my love tank.
I will tap into the things I use to love & see if they still have a place in my life.
I will take time to unwind from the activities of the day, let go of the things I could not control & make efforts to start new tomorrow.
I will give myself the time I need to be who I need to be for me — every single time.
I will stop putting everyone before myself & be deliberate with making healthy choices for me each & every day.
