My thoughts for the day....
It is okay to take a break. I know as for myself I used to feel unaccomplished, guilty or unworthy if I took a break. If that was physically or mentally I would always think that If I took a break I would not feel like I was worthy to say ‘ I am an Artist, mother, wife, teacher, friend and so on..”
To wear all of these hats on my shoulders can be overwhelming if I do not take a break I will suffer. Some may think its being lazy for the hours, day, or weekend. I have come to a point in life where I say…What EVER ! LOL… at the end of the day who will care for me like I need to be cared for but ME.
Life is funny like that. The moment you make decisions for YOU; the ones that aren’t centered around others and the care for others you are the ‘bad’ person. Now, I have found that there are consequences to my actions. Lose of a friend, silent treatment from loved ones, not getting paid for the day and the list goes on. However, I find my peace of mind weighs much heavily over all the consequences.
So, are you taking a mental break from all the hats you wear? Do you feel guilty when you do so? Don’t. Life is too short. Live it with a peace of mind.
