Do you ever feel super worn down? I really hit my wall this weekend with that. After reflecting upon it, I realized that, although I had been working on my "empire", I had been devoting a lot of my time and energy on others. I needed to take time for myself in order to feel complete!
I know, I know, we have been told that service cultivates relationships, and to love our neighbor. Those things are still true! You know what else is true, too? That time spent on yourself is beneficial as well. Stop feeling guilty for wanting to pamper yourself and get a manicure, or or wanting to shop for an hour, or for feeling the need to exercise when you have mom/wifey/work/worldly duties. You deserve to recharge at least twice a week.
I spent my weekend recharging. Lunch with friends, yoga on the dock (in my The Sweatbar crops), vegging out to shows. While I know that you can definitely over-do it, as long as you are fulfilling all of your obligations, I say indulge. Get the cute round SwimZip towel you've been eyeing. Buy yourself some flowers. Spend the day out at the pool. Paint your toes! You deserve it girl.
