So much more.

When I saw this posted on Feministing, I thought, wow, I needed this reminder.  I need to continually drink it in and feel it in every pore.

I’ve found myself wondering lately if I’m lacking motivation, whether I’m stalling on my jewelry and art projects, or neglecting my messy room and disorganized art table.  “Get up, keep going,” I think to myself.

Then I saw this and thought, “Wait, wait.  Breathe.  I don’t need to jump head first into anything and everything anymore. I can give myself permission to slow down.”

I give myself permission to do one thing at a time.  I give myself permission to acknowledge what I am doing instead of looking at what I’m not doing. I give myself permission to ease the grip of valuing myself based on what I do.  In a culture of doing, I think we need to give ourselves more permission just to be.  We are not the sum of our accomplishments or how much we can get done in a day.  We are so much more.

  1. breatheing is key! Allow yourself to breathe and feel the breaths going in and out as you do. I think we all need to slow down a little bit. Life is too short! XX
