I've needed alot of rest this past week, or almost month it's seems but as a busy mom typically does, I've tried not to and just powered through.
But I realized today that it's so much more than just allowing ourselves to rest, it's knowing that we are WORTHY of it.
I've just been going, going, going for so long, knowing that physically I needed to rest, but I resisted it. What about my to-do list? Shouldn't I be doing all these things? Look at those other people doing things and me just laying here all BLAH.
And the more I resisted it, the more I needed it. Sound familiar?
We think of rest as weakness or laziness or that it's something we have to earn. If we rest it must be only absolutely necessary. We think if we stop everything will crash. And sometimes it does. But sometimes a crash is exactly what is needed because we havent allowed ourselves to stop, look and listen and just be and just breathe.
So the crash is actually the gift because often times it's the only way we will ever receive it .
So how about we practice looking and listening and being and breathing. How about we accept that we don't have to do anything to be worthy of rest, just worthy period.
That rest is natural and necessary.....
The key word is PRACTICE.😉
