Tuning In; Tuning Out
I have always known how important it is to listen and be true to your own self. I also know how sometimes, while great in theory, it is not always something easily practiced. It is too easy to say things like…
“I have too much to do”
“I really want to do <fill in the blank>, but I should do <fill in the blank>.”
“That does not feel good, but I do not want to hurt someone’s feelings.”
You get the idea!
Well, yesterday I listened to myself. I had a list of things I needed to get done, but instead my body and brain were screaming loudly, “Pam, you need to rest! You need to recharge!”
So I listened and I did just that! I took the day to curl up in bed, watch movies and sleep. I am glad I did, because today I feel more energized…in a better place to be the best person I can be.
