I’ve a confession… I’ve been a bit of a naughty monkey!
Skiving off, not really doing much.
Literally the bare minimum….
Taking time off, reading books. Going to lots of singing (our Ubud choir did a Queen Set last night check my insta stories to see my sing my heart out to Freddie)
This morning I woke up super focused went to yoga and feel really really motivated to get some things done. YAY!
It’s like a switch was turned on!
I woke up excited to answer my emails (who is this person?)
I have realised (finally) that it’s totally OK to take a break, have a kit kat (I couldn’t resist – I did devour nearly an entire giant toblerone last week too…)
I hear motivational speakers say don’t wait until to ‘feel’ like it but seriously we can be sooo tough on ourselves.
Everytime I said I ‘should’ do some work last week – Ken gave me a funny look and said you need to rest (he had been harping on about this rest thing for ages… did I listen nah…. Until I HAD TOO… )
Truth was I was totally burned out – all the travel, events, calls, launches the lot, I hit a wall and had to stop … my body wasn’t happy, my brain was going bonkers, I was so unmotivated and felt exhausted.
I needed to sleep the sleep which I did one whole afternoon.
I realised that I need to give myself permission to take a break.
On some of my client calls yesterday….
A common denominator was PERMISSION….
It’s like we need to get permission from someone to ‘monkey around’, take a break, have fun, go do something nice for ourselves.
Like we need to deserve it or something..
Stop, take a deep breathe in and think of the one thing you’d love to do
JUST FOR YOU!
If you feel like you need permission to do it ….
You have it!
This is the sign you’ve been waiting for.
Go do it…
Today’s video is totally along this thread too….. But for something MUCH bigger..
For extra brownie points (and universal accountability) .. Reply in the comments what you’re going to do for you ….
Have a magical week,
P.S. One thing that bubbled up to the surface was doing a live event in Ireland this summer while I’m there if you want to be the first to know about the event (it’s gonna be funnnnnn) click here.
