It’s commonly mistaken; taken some me time is inconsiderate, especially when this and this needs to be done. This couldn’t be further from the truth. For one, stepping back and recharging ensures that you can get the job done properly (have you ever heard of burnout?). It is not a luxury, it is a necessity; self-care is important for sanity (that about sums it up). In this modern world, it is hard enough getting from A to B every day all the time while juggling many different priorities. Yes, the show must go on. This is can be interpreted many different ways, however. ‘The show’ is your life. With a little bit of self-awareness, you can direct ‘your show’ and the direction it goes it. You can’t control life, that’s a well-known fact, but you can control how it effects you and how you react to it.
“Growing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.” – Victoria Moran, Author
