There is too much going on right now, we all know that. First, we were all quarantined in our homes for what seemed like forever. Then we were running around wearing masks and using hand sanitizer like lotion every five seconds. Of course, we are still juggling jobs, family and friend commitments as well. During it all we were suddenly fighting a Black Lives Movement with renewed vigor.
Now do not get me wrong, most of us have always been fighting racism in some form or fashion, from the moment we were born. For some reason now, it seems like everyone else sees what we have been trying to tell them our entire lives. But I digress.
In the middle of all this, I hope you are taking time to breathe. Yes, everything is important and needs our attention. But let us be honest, things pretty much always need our attention! With so much going on it is crucial that you are taking care of you. If you need to take a step back from the cause for a moment and focus on your emotional well-being, so be it. We get so caught up in trying to be everything for everyone that we sometimes forget our needs. Burning yourself out will solve nothing. Get the rest you need. Drink your water. Make sure you are handling your stress in healthy ways. Get some type of exercise. And just take a moment, to just be.

This was such a great reminder to just take a break from it all and really just invest in relaxing and taking care of yourself. I have a bad tendency of burning out quite a lot but I’m learning to be more aware of when I’m reaching a breaking point and to be ok with taking breaks or leaving things for the next day. I love playing with my pups, watching something funny, or taking a nice long bath with a book just to de-stress. 🙂
Sometimes its hard to remember, but if we don’t take care of us, we can’t take care of anything or anyone else.
