Okay, so… I spent most of the day in bed today. Bad Nova. This morning, when I woke up, my back and my neck were pretty messed up. I assume I slept on a rock, or was teleported to an alternate dimension wherein my mattress was made of pointy sticks. In any case, it’s been a lazy day. I didn’t get out of bed until 5:30pm. Instead, I spent the day trying not to move too much and watching “The Great British Baking Show.”
And you know what? I have zero regrets.
Well, except for maybe the fact that sleeping so much today seems to have actually made me more tired… but that’s neither here nor there.
The point is, sometimes we don’t just deserve a break… Sometimes we need it. And sometimes, when there’s a million different things going on and we have responsibilities and all manner of other ~things we want to get done, we’ll put ourselves on the back-burner in favor of everything – and everyone – else. And that’s not okay. We need to give ourselves time to rest. We need to give ourselves a break from time to time… and we need to ignore that little guilt-monster that tries to rear its ugly head when we do.
Sometimes, the best thing you can do for yourself is shut everything out and focus on you… and for a lot of us, that’s hard. Give yourself permission to be just a little bit selfish from time to time. You deserve it. Your first life will continue on and survive without you for one day… and the second one surely will, too. It’s okay. And if you need to tell yourself that until you believe it, if you need to write it on post-it notes or put it as a reminder on your phone, if you need to shut everything off… do it. You’ll feel better. I promise.
