In our over-achieving, always active culture, our intention to always be busy instead of just be-ing is usually celebrated as the norm. However, even in the best of times, constant busy-ness can be overwhelming and depleting. Factor in what we’ve lived through in the past year, we’ve survived challenges like nothing we’ve ever faced.
Surviving the past year is nothing short of a blessing.
Be proud of yourself! Be gentle on yourself!
Give your high-achieving-self permission to do your daily routine in a reasonable pace, one day at a time, and to be good enough. Perfection is unrealistic. You are a good enough spouse, parent, sibling, caregiver, employee… whatever role you are fulfilling.
If this resonates with you, perhaps you’d like to check out my latest meditation. I wrote and produced this guided imagery meditation with the intention of providing affirmation…that everything is manageable, and we can give ourselves permission to find balance. Hope you enjoy it!
