Short & Sweet.

personal, Self Care (Mental Health)


This week has been a doozy. I feel like I could sleep forever and would still feel exhausted. So I haven’t been able to get much done.

One person suggested its because of  an eclipse coming up. Another, that women work in cycles and that maybe right now I’m just needing to rest. Or maybe because its mid February and I’m craving more daylight and spring.  What ever it is, its got me in a bit of a funk and I’m learning to be ok with it. 

Learning my thresholds and being able to listen to my body to know what its needs has been tough. I used to push myself past these times thinking that I was just being weak, or lazy. Add in there that I also deal with depression and often times can’t take on as much as others, leaves me with feelings of wanting to prove that I can keep up (as if there is some sort of race with a finish line) and setting unrealistic expectations for myself.

So this weeks post is short and sweet. Im learning to take my own advice, and be gentle with myself.

If you’ve read the book  ‘The Four Agreements‘ you know that the 4th agreement is, Always do your Best ( and if you haven’t read it you should! It’s so good!) in it he says:

‘Under any circumstance always do your best, no more no less. but keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next…. Your best will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick, or sober as opposed to drunk. Your best will depend  on whether you are feeling wonderful and happy or upset, angry or jealous… Regardless of the quality, keep doing your best- no more and no less than your best. ’

— Don Miguel Ruiz

So this week, this is my best.

If you follow me on instagram you may have seen this quote I posted this week…


Right now I’m resting.

 And I wanted to be honest and let you all know. Too often we only see the highlight reels on each others lives on the Internet, but we all have our down times,  hard times, or uninspired times.

This week has just been one of those weeks.
