Running on Empty - Time to Refill
Every day, most of us work, care for our families, and perform countless other tasks without giving much thought to ourselves. We wonder why we feel fatigued, dissatisfied or sad--bogged down.
You know everyone's favorite superlative? I'm striking the prefix "super" from my vocabulary. The more I pressure myself, the less I accomplish; the less I accomplish, the more disillusioned I become. It's a proven fact that feelings of inadequacy can lead to depression...
This week, my personal challenge was to cut myself some slack. Lower my expectations. Show myself the same consideration I would someone else. Take a deep breath and stop stressing.
From here on out, I invite you to join me in finding ways to "be kind to yourself." Remember...you're special, too.
