Give yourself permission to just breathe.
To let go.
To be still.
For all the times you’ve been so mean to you. For all the times you looked at yourself in the mirror and wished you didn’t have to be you. You didn’t have to exist. For all the times you expected too much of yourself. Pushed yourself too hard. Beat down on yourself for not being “quite there yet.”
There are days where not moving, not doing, not planning, not rushing, not adding another task to your endless to do list is the answer.
There comes a time when you just have to lay down. Sleep. Rest. Lock yourself away from the world. Give yourself the space to just be. To not have to figure out all the details.
Hold space for yourself.
It’s okay to not be okay. To take time off. To not have it all together all the time. To put down the heavy burdens and take a breather. Even the almighty God took a break. So much more you, mighty human, need a day to turn off and recharge.
It’s okay to disconnect.
It’s okay to say “You know what? Today I am not doing anything.”
Lay in bed all day.
Give your body the rest it needs to function.
Let your mind have time to slow down and recharge.
Breakdowns are a normal part of the human experience.
Give yourself permission to breakdown.
Life is actually pretty darn hard sometimes.
There is so much going on. So many to do’s. So many expectations.
It is natural to want to pause.
Hold space for yourself to be human. To slow down. To soften the pace.
Just be here right now.
Giving yourself permission to simply exist without the need to manage anything, control anything. fix anything, or figure anything out right now.
Allow yourself to be right where you’re at in this moment.
Allow yourself to take a break.
