So ladies, have you ever felt like you’re not doing enough? Well I do often. I mean I know as a mother we have to stay on go. Yet as the woman of our households we tend to be the glue that holds it all together. Not much gets done properly without us doing it. Right?! But, at the same time do you ever feel like you need permission to just not give a
fuk? If only for a day, here and there.
When I resigned from my previous job this pass May I was unsure of taking time off. Why though? Maybe because society nowadays say you suppose to just work, work, work. Society says you don’t sleep in less you’re dead or retired. Or wealthy! Well, I’m not either one yet, but I finally gave myself permission. Permission to really take this time off for the Summer like I’d planned. To really do nothing if I choose to. So fast forward to last week, when I stayed in bed all morning until afternoon. Got up got myself cleaned up, cooked something simple, then went to my sofa to watch Netflix while writing out my business plan in my journal. Sipping on some peach Moscato. Oh, the life.
When I say I didn’t do much of anything. I didn’t. It felt so damn good too. I just enjoyed my day. I meditated, stretched, lit my candles, burned some sage and did absolutely nothing. However, I did rest well, enjoyed a documentary I’d been meaning to watch and jotted down some things I’d been putting off doing. I even gave myself a mani and pedi. Foot spa included.
All in all, be sure to grant yourself permission. Permission to be free of your daily duties. Even if it’s just one day. Duties include laundry, work, social media, cooking, cleaning, doing your hair, makeup, sucking in, just whatever it is you feel you wanna drop for a solid 24 hours. It will recharge your battery for you to go even harder. Most of all it will recharge your body and your mind. Something we can all use often.
Ladies, taking a day to just smile, laugh, relax and do nothing won’t harm your business or future endeavors. Or your life period. You are allowed to relax, you are allowed to watch Netflix all day. You are allowed to drop adult-ing for a day. You do so much daily it’s okay to take a break to just breathe and be.
So when was the last time you gave yourself permission?
It’s the weekend, let’s relax, drink plenty water (note to self), sip some sweet red wine and enjoy this weekend. I hope your Friday is a fabulous one.
Peace Love & Light
