I give you this photo posted by Glennon Doyle, of a mom attending to what’s most important; her restoration!
Even now, I have the luxury of more of my own time, but I still push myself to produce and accomplish.
I am currently on a mountain resting and relaxing, but, I came here with the intention of getting a whole lot of creative work done. My body had other plans. It took me a couple of days to clue in that I can’t keep pushing myself.
I still need reminding that the masculine way of making a plan and ‘gettin ‘er done’ does not work for me! I need more rest than I think I do and I need more quiet time than I am comfortable with. My body knows and literally stops me in my tracks until I 'get' it.
What about you?
Will you give yourself permission to rest?
To attend to what your body and your spirit are asking for?
