Take that in. Just breathe it in. You are worthy despite the to-do list and despite the to-done list, too. We humans have been trained to measure the value of the day based on a series of tasks completed. There is no adult-fairy flying over us with a gold star to measure our completion, our accuracy, our level of drive.
These are words I really have to repeat in my mind and let them sink into my heart. As I'm coming off of a long stretch of 15 hour days and working weekends, I am reminded that there is a season to sew and a season to harvest. Without rest, we can't rebuild. Without pause, we can't see and appreciate the fullness of our world- a world we are often fighting so hard for.
Breathing, creating space for peace will provide us with the space to enjoy and honor our lovable nature. In that space, we often find ourselves smiling more, affectionate, expanding. We were born to be loved and abundant, joyful and playful without strings attached. It's our human ego that makes us feel as though we are always behind.
My parents always said, "You can't take it with you when you go." They meant the toys, the money, the material things. This also holds true for our to-do list and our to-done list. We can't take with us the folded laundry or the freshly swept floors or the quota met. So, then, why not breathe and make memories? Why not allow ourselves more joy and less stress?
If you are someone who is able to do this regularly, what are your tricks? I want to learn from you. This is a goal. This is a mantra. This is a seed I'm sewing so that it can flourish and fruit in my life. I'll be using my Hope rollerball and allowing the oils of worthiness to support my mind and my heart as I move into this fresh space of peace.
Love yourself today.
