I’ve been asking myself that question a lot lately.
Because the truth is, when I feel busy, rushed, stressed, overtired, or overwhelmed, it’s not because of someone or something ‘out there.’
It’s because of me and the things I do to myself.
Saying ‘yes’ instead of ‘no.’
Not practicing proper self-care.
Holding myself hostage to unrealistic expectations.
And allowing dirty words like ‘have to’ and ‘should’ into my mind.
The reality is:
I get to decide how often to post, how many blogs to visit, and what jobs to take on.
The house will not collapse from a little extra dust here and here.
Putting on my own oxygen mask first is essential.
And less is more.
Your turn: What are you doing to yourself?
