This is my mantra for the new year!
I invite you to join me in thinking about the following sentence for a minute. To let it sink into the depth of your consciousness:
**I have permanent permission to stop and determine how I feel about what I am doing at any given moment**
It is terribly easy — too easy — to drain oneself of all energy by pouring it freely into other people or tasks or objects. Especially in times like these, when constant availability has become a necessity not only in the workplace (bad enough!) but also in our social lives.
We deserve rest. We deserve to create nurturing and loving environments for ourselves. We deserve to be compassionate with ourselves and our limits.
I wish you a beautiful new year filled with compassion and kindness, firstly towards YOU. Then everyone else.
We deserve it.
