I'm tired, y'all. Most of you know I tend to live a life of 'burning the candle at both ends.' I am used to working long hours and having back to back appointments. I get that I often occur like a white lightning bolt. Kinda like a "Hey! Here comes Abby!" ...."Hey! There goes Abby!" To a "Hey!?! Where'd Abby go?"
Well, tonight, you can find me under my comforter with a bowl of Special K and Parks and Rec on Netflix. I can usually maintain a high level of functionality for a string of days and sometimes tipping into weeks. At some point, I crash.
Anyone relating?!?! ✋✋✋
We can get SO BUSY in this noisy world. It can keep us constantly connected and in motion. If we take it on, there always seems to be a call to action. This world and it's needs can keep us on our toes day in and day out.
There will always be a reason to keep going.
This can quickly shift from a noble effort to a self destructive pattern. Therefore, we must take notice when we are running on empty. We must catch ourselves compromising our well being for being well liked. Sometimes we convince ourselves that we must continue to serve but honestly, nobody likes a stingy grouch.
It is YOUR responsibility to get your rest, nourishment...and daily showers. Your job is to source yourself in a way that sources others and the world. By way of YOU being whole and complete, you may truly serve others from a place of love, gratitude, and vitality.
So tonight, I am sourcing myself with nothing more than rest, the softness of my fluffy blankey, and the inspiration of Leslie Knope. The winds of this little transformation tornado are settling down for an early evening.
Fast or slow, I am always living a life I love.
What is it that you do to recover your well being and source your energy?
