Hope your summer is treating you well. I found my aching self ruminating on all my “to do” things that need to be done. I have this mentality that I only feel rewarded if I fit as much as possible into a day. At the end of the day, I sit back and marvel what I have performed, however lately, my age has been creeping up on me and showing me who the boss really is. I find myself, aching every night and waking up stiff. It is true if I don’t upkeep things around my house then it won’t be done, however, I am thinking there has got to be some balance to these daily chores. Reminding myself that I am no longer 30 years old and I am not physically able to bend, move, or carry what I used to be able to do is quite humbling. At the same time it’s quite frustrating. I find my inner voice negatively talking to my body for not being able to keep up. Last night when I took my epsom bath, I promised myself that this kind of talk needs to stop. I also noticed, when I work so very hard, I eat whatever my body craves which is not healthy and includes lots of sugar. See how easily we can get caught up in not taking care of ourselves?
Today I promise myself to self love and take time to rest without guilt. Today I give myself permission not to work like I’m 30. Today I will take the time to sit and relax with a healthy glass of water. Today I will begin to be more conscious on eating healthy foods. Today I will take more breaks and let others lift anything over 20 pounds. Today I will accept I am no longer my younger self however I am my best self and who I am supposed to be.
Take time today all, to be your true authentic self and have acceptance for where you are in your life fully.
Peace of mind to all, go have a great day.
