The last few days have felt a bit up and down for me. I have been pushing myself, saying yes to everything and everyone, and probably taken on a bit too much.
If you're like me, you struggle to say no, especially when it is something you are passionate about, or someone you love.
Whenever I start feeling this sense of overwhelm I come back to the in flight safety videos - put your own mask on before you help anyone else. I'm not sure if it's a female thing, or a personality thing, but many of us are always putting everyone and everyone else first, and forgetting we need our own oxygen to survive and continue helping others.
So, today I have been for a walk, done some grocery shopping, cleaned the house, and I'm about to go and have a shower and climb back into my bed to binge watch some TV (and lets be honest, probably have a nap).
Sure there are plenty of more productive ways I could spend my afternoon, but we can't and don't have to be productive all the time. It's ok to take time to just be and not be juggling balls.
I hope you find some time this weekend to just be as well.
