I don't know about you but goodness..sometimes I have to ask God to back up some with all of the pressure! I know I'm a strong woman but COME ON MAN!! I was beginning to feel like if it ain't one thing it's another. I found myself starting this beautiful month STRESSED and I realized it was just a carry over from life building up and me not addressing it as well as I thought I was doing. The pile up left me feeling very unfocused with work and business and nothing was really getting done. I spoke to my therapist about this and she informed me it was a sign of stress and possible burn out. She also informed me that given everything, it wasn’t exactly a bad thing and a sign from my body I need to slow down and take more time out for ME.
So I took my nerves and credit card and went on a MOMCATION to a beautiful hotel by myself; no kids, no puppy and of course no man (if you know then you know and if you don’t read my new book!). During this 48 hour momcation, I dedicated it to self care and even attempted to put some strategy behind my business. However, God put a hold on that too. I had all intentions on accomplishing some business work but that’s not what He had planned for me. There’s a time and place for everything and I just knew this was it, but it wasn’t. It was truly a time to sit and be still. Just relax and not think about anything. He gives us sufficient grace for each day for a reason so that we don’t get too far ahead of ourselves and most importantly God. That was all of the reminder I needed and I resumed my task of doing ME.
This weekend was a true reminder that I can't pour from an empty cup and I can't keep Doin' All Things like this and most importantly, I can't make history and an impact like this. I have to take more time out for ME while still keeping God first.
Be blessed and keep Doin' All Things
