The theme for this month is Be Kind to Yourself and I don’t think that I have started the month of doing that.
I know that Being Kind to Myself is a challenge and that is why I wanted to focus on it for the month of September.
I had all these ideas that I would-
- Go and have a facial
- Buy some new clothes for Summer
- Go to a nice place and have coffee
- Catch up with friends
- Go and learn a new dance style.
Something happened along the way I was unwell, I felt sick.
You are probably thinking and………, well I find it really hard to take a day of work and just to rest up and to recover.
Let me just say that I feel guilty, there I have said it I feel guilty about taking time off work.
Now I do work for a wonderful organisation and I do have sick days available for me to use when they are needed.
But I struggle with being unwell, I am not a very good patient.
This week has been a bit of a lesson for me in being kind to myself.
I had to let go of the pressure that I place on myself and accept that things are going to happen out of my control.
Yes there are days that I am not going to be feeling 100% and I just need to accept them.
Resting, relaxing and recovering are part of life.
So I am reminding myself to-
Be Kind to Myself
Repeat after me-
Be Kind to Yourself.
The month is not over and I still have plenty of time to Be Kind to Myself and I am going to focus on what I can do.
I also know that I do have my health and I am grateful for that.
The challenge is still on.
What have you been doing to Be Kind to Yourself?
Have you learnt anything along the way?
Will share more soon.
