I think I can speak for many of us when I say that January hit us hard... like a ton of bricks.
There's been lots of tragedy mixed with some triumphs. Lots to be grateful for, and lots to test our capacity to believe that something better is just around the corner.
Life is HARD. And, the journey is far from linear.
So, this is just a reminder that it's okay...
... to give yourself the time you need to heal.
... to take a break from the routine.
... to change course completely.
... to need some space.
... to ask for help.
... not to be okay.
You're not weak. You don't lack the "mental discipline" to keep going, even when the going gets tough.
Sometimes, it's TOO tough to continue. Sometimes, our body is literally telling us that we need to stop, reassess our priorities, and give it a rest.
And, just like our muscles need time to rest and recover after being put under stress at the gym - it's important to give ourselves the grace we need during the tough times to fully recover.
If you felt like you needed this reminder today, leave me a 💜in the comments BELOW.
And, if you're struggling right now, I'm opening up my comments and email to continue the conversation and share a sense of connection during whatever tough time you may be going through right now. You are not alone.
