I realize that it is good to take a break sometimes and replenish the well.
In my excitement to expand at a rapid rate of speed, I can sometimes overextend myself. It is always good to renew and reflect.
I recognize when I am doing too much. I slow down when things get too frenetic in my world.
I am grateful that I have sense enough to slow down at times and reassess my life. I feel that it is a good thing to take a weekend off.
I know how a holiday from the day-to-day pressures can make me a better worker when I come back with a fresh perspective.
I give myself permission to rest and recuperate.
I know that restoring my energy and strength makes me all the better. I walk away from my work for a brief break and go for a walk. I breathe in fresh air. I do a few stretches. I let my mind wander.
I imagine myself in my own little snow globe. It is quiet and peaceful. I can take a breath. I let myself drift off into this land of creativity and joy. I realize that even a tiny break from life can refresh me.
Sometimes I just need to be by myself for a minute with no distractions. I turn off all devices. I retreat to nature. I pull myself back together if I have allowed myself to get pulled in too many directions from too many people.
Today, I know that it is okay to take time for myself and dream.
- Where have I allowed myself to get over extended?
- How often do I say “no” to the requests of others?
- Where can I manage my time and energy better?
