I realized, or perhaps… remembered something today.
Since it’s Sunday, it makes sense that it seemed to hit me
on the day typically dedicated to respite. To retreat,
re-group; and rejuvenate preparing for the week ahead. It
dawned on me that we rarely remember that while the weekend
is meant for relaxation and family, it’s often filled with
errands, the needs of our kids and responsibilities. But,
when do we remind ourselves that if we don’t replenish
ourselves, we can’t take care of anyone else?
Clearly, not often enough. I want to give you permission… before you give
your oxygen mask away to anyone else, breathe long and deep
and make certain you tend to yourself first – You must
practice being there for yourself before focusing on anyone
Guilt is an unnecessary and wasted emotion. When it
comes, acknowledge it, be civil and let it go just as
quickly as it came. Don’t bother interacting with it or
offering it any attention.
Trust Yourself. One of the gifts and the burdens of
having a woman’s DNA is that gut feeling, that
“sixth sense” of ours. The ability to continue the inherent
physical connection between mother and child, the one thing
that never dissipates with age. Don’t question
your gut or allow other people’s personal biases or
opinions taint what you feel in your heart to be true.
We can lie to others, but we always know the truth in our
heart. Pride has no place in making decisions that effect
our children. So, trust yourself.
I hope this is helpful, let me know if you relate and what YOU think…
Remember, Color Creates Change!
