I am sick. It may just be really bad allergies or a Summer cold. Either way…I feel pretty bad. I normally do a weekly intention post with all 4 cards I draw but this week I am just going to share this one.
I tend to fight rest when I feel bad. Why?
The best I can come up with is that I feel guilty. I think this is a common issue for most of us.
We’re not THAT sick so we can still go-go-go and do everything we normally can do. The thing is, if we would just rest for a little while, truly, lovingly, care for our bodies, we would be back at 100% a lot sooner.
I’m lucky that I don’t work outside of the home. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot of responsibilities…but I can do those things at a slower pace.
This card was a great reminder that I need to do everything I can to assist my body.
Perfect is a bit of a stretch, even for this positive thinking girl. But I can take care of myself and allow my body the time it needs to fight off whatever it is that is trying to take me down. 🙂
Perfect is relative anyway right?
So here’s to some serious self-care and TLC wrapped up in a no guilt hug!
