I didn’t push myself yesterday

“Go faster. Push harder. This is not pain you feel. It’s pure pleasure. Come on, you can go even faster.”

Hey, Lovelies.

I used to push myself. Hard. All the time.

But I don’t now. I can’t. Something inside me has changed, and I won’t allow myself to do that anymore.

Yesterday, I was exhausted by early afternoon.

I didn’t push it. I took a break, made a cup of tea and watched an episode of a favourite show.

We had a friend stay over the weekend. On Sunday night, after we ate dinner, although it was only seven pm I excused myself, and went upstairs to bed.

Every night, I am in bed early. Every day I stop when I am tired.

I am gifting myself quiet time, healing time, rest.

The more I give those gifts to myself, the more I seem to want.

Where I would take ten minutes, I want an hour.
Where I took an hour, I want a morning, or an afternoon.
Where I took a day, I want two. Or more.

What if I took a week?
What if I took a month?
What if I took a year?

I don’t have answers yet, but I have good questions. Good questions are always a fine place to start. But I’ll do that later, after I’ve had some more rest.
Love, hugs and peacefulness, Nicole xx
