Dear “Needing-A-Break” Soul

Every morning I get a lovely, inspiring little email from Brave Girls Club. I received one last week that spoke straight to my heart, and knew I had to share it on here. I hope it resonates with you as much as it did me, and helps you give yourself permission to enjoy the gift of rest!

“Dear Needing-a-Break Soul,

We would never expect a car to run without fuel. We would never expect an appliance to work without being plugged in. We would never expect a flashlight to work without batteries.

Why do expect ourselves to operate at full capacity without refueling, recharging, recalibrating?

We need white space.

We need eye rest. We need peace and quiet.

We need to stop thinking so hard, stop moving so fast, stop worrying so much.

Sometimes we forget that one of the most important parts of our daily work, our weekly work, our life’s work — is the chill time.

You need rest. You need time to chill and be. You need to be nourished. You are a living, breathing, feeling being.

Take some time. Schedule it in. It is part of your important life work. No one is going to take care of this part of things, so you must. You are too important to wear out.

You are so very very very loved.”
