(every photographer needs at least one photo of their unmade bed, right?)Today is a day I would have liked to have just stayed in bed, to rejuvenate my mind, body and soul.
I feel like I have been burning the candle at both ends lately.
Not taking good care of myself. Putting everyone one else first, but then forgetting about my own needs completely.
This is not good! (I won't get into the details of the craziness around here with a super fussy teething baby who doesn't sleep well, in combination with crazy end of the school year, my business, my summer school class, housework, family, childcare, etc.)
Today I was in need of rest, relaxation , solitude, self care, and nurturing.
Instead I had a garage/yard sale.
I keep doing this, and its starting to catch up with me. This is a yucky pattern I have created.
So, I decided that I am really going to try and be better about being more balanced.
I need to practice balance in my own life, (I am really good about giving other people permission to nurture themselves, be balanced, and take special, gentle care... taking my own advice can be hard with all I have on my plate, but no excuses!)
I feel the need for a vacation, or a getaway, a quiet retreat to nurture my soul. Maybe I will take this money I made from this garage sale today and use it for a little restorative day for myself.
Will you hold me to it?
What do you do to stay balanced? Or keep sane? How do you nurture yourself?
