There I said it.
So many times we have trouble with that word for fear we are missing out.
I’ve discovered that “missing out” can mean a variety of things.
There was a time I felt I was missing out if I declined invitations.
I mean, it could be SO fun!
…but then the prism turned. Maybe it’s age or maybe it’s that mom/worklife exhaustion but I started to feel that I was missing out on opportunities to better my quality of life by constantly saying yes to events and gatherings. I was missing out on resting, focusing on art, and doing things I love to do! You know, that self-care trendy stuff 😉
Sometimes self-care means being selfish with your time.
Giving myself permission to stay in has been one of the most rejuvenating and productive things I’ve done for myself.
I bounce around my place cleaning, creating, resting, and taking care of my own little corner of the world.
When my little world is given the attention it deserves, I can thrive in my career and the things I do attend. Spreading yourself thin is no bueno.
That’s not to say I never get out or attend events-I definitely do! It’s just a matter of balance 🤷🏻♀️
But I mean, who doesn’t love sweatpants, messy buns, and movies? #justsayin
