When You Are Forced to Rest
Today I am forced to rest, I am on school holidays.
I don’t know about you but I find it difficult to rest to just sit in the moment.
I find it difficult to just relax.
I really do.
It has taken me a long time to realise that it is okay to just sit and be in the moment.
I have had to learn this on purpose.
I have always been an on-the-go women.
Today I find myself day 3 in a moon boot, I have bruised my foot and needed to rest.
I am required to rest.
The Doctor has recommended me to rest.
Now I am a person who is on the go, who lives life to the full and pushes herself to be all she can.
Today I am required to take it easy, I am required to just rest, I am required to allow myself to heal.
Why do we find it so difficult to rest?
Why is it that we need permission to rest?
Why do we feel guilty when we just sit and rest?
Resting and looking after ourselves is self-care.
Self-care is really important and we need to invest in it, we really do.
Today I am challenged to remind myself that I am an important woman and that I deserve to rest.
What are you reminding yourself about today?
What do you need to do for yourself today?
I would love to hear from you.
You are worthy, valued and loved.
You really are.
Let’s be kind to ourselves.
We have got this.
