First of all Netflix and chill is good any day of the week.
But this past weekend the weather was meh and I had set my mind that Saturday I wasn’t leaving my bed and I was going to watch 8+ hours of Law and Order SVU. I know what you are thinking, I’m amateur lol
But I had a long week and I wanted some rest and relaxation time. I even planned to go to the grocery store the night before so I was prepared.✅ My spiritual practice was going to be me, my bed and learning for the queen herself Olivia Benson.
It’s wasn’t too long after I made up my mind of my personal self-help day that I got thoughts of laziness, low self worth and anxiousness creeping in. I should go work out, read a book and visit my grandma instead. Why would I waste a whole day doing nothing? What kind of loser was I? Successful people don’t have tv marathon days? I was filling myself with Lies, shame and guilt.
But my truth was I had a crazy work week, I had to talk to so many people, drive crazy hours around in my car and homegirl just wanted a day to chill in her vs pajamas and go bra less. Sue me. Long story short I put the thoughts behind me and did exactly what I wanted to do that day. No shame. No guilt. Only SVU goodness and a two bags of goldfish and a frozen pizza. I am now one with my mind, body and soul 🙌🏼 #apft
God help me realize that I don’t have to be perfect everyday. Please help me find a balance between my busy work life and down time to rest and relax. I pray that I release self judgement, shame and guilt over every aspect of my life. Please help me find ways to relax and unwind without feeling anything less than self loving. I know my spiritual journey is limitless and I can always find ways to bring myself love, peace and kindness. I pray to love myself and my decisions more and more each day.
