For Myself

A Message

Dear self,

You are doing okay.  You have a lot on your plate.  A lot that doesn't really look like that much when everything is listed singly.  But when it's put together, when the list has to be taken care of every single day, or even once or twice a week.... it's overwhelming. 

So often you don't feel like you have a choice.  Like the things on your plate, your to do list, are absolutes.  That if you don't get them done then there is something wrong with you.  Or your skills.  That everyone else could get it done, what's your problem?

Stop it.

Stop it now.

You are not everyone else.  Not everyone else is you.  You alone know what is in your heart and what holds priority.  What truly deserves to be at the top of the priority list.  What brings you joy in your soul.  What makes it possible for you to go to sleep at night feeling like you did your best.  No matter what that best looks like.

And please for the love of everything let your "best" be flexible.  If you rocked the to do list yesterday but can't seem to get yourself off the couch today, it's okay.  More than okay.  Your worth is not judged by what you can accomplish in any given time frame, your worth is what's in your heart.

You can choose.

You've always had a choice.

Take back your life.  Own your story.
