For years I was on the go a lot.
I was going here and going there. Making plans with this one and then planning something else with another one. It was non- stop. I thought that on my days off I had to take advantage and to me that meant that I had to be constantly on the go. On my off days, I had to be “on”. It is amazing how much your perspective can change over the course of a couple of months, or even a year.
This past year has been a year of great exploration and transformation.
I am so grateful for that. I have come to terms with the fact that I am an introvert. I have also come to terms with what I need to be in charge of my mental health. As an introvert, I need time to recharge and recover from the energy that I expel when I am out around loads of people. There is nothing wrong with this. This is just who I am and I have come to accept this fact. I also know that when I do too many activities, I need to rest! Everyone has different remedies that make them feel better, the key is to find what works for you.
Now that I know and accept this part of myself, I can manage myself and my expectations accordingly. This is an act of self- awareness, self-compassion, and the ultimate act of self-love. Figuring out who you are and what makes you tick is half the battle.
I love Sunday’s!
Those are the days that I reserve for quiet time at home to rest and recharge. I work on content, catch up on my TV shows, prepare meals for the week and I stay at home and relax and connect with my spiritual self. I love it. This is the needed when the rest of the week can be so busy.
I encourage you to take some time for yourself and just rest. You need it and you deserve it. Your body will thank you and so will your brain!
