Balance

balance    Good evening friends,

Last week was a tough week for me. Some of you know and some do not, I have depression. Some days are great. Some are not. Last week were a lot of not great days. And then I wake up one morning and I am perfectly well. Such is the journey. It made me think, however, on my day to day activities. When I have energy and get my house sparkling clean and days where I can’t even get out of bed. But sometimes that’s okay. Because there is balance in that. Knowing when you’re feeling well and can get a lot done and when you need rest, physically and mentally. And that’s okay. It’s okay to take a nap during the day if you need it, or after work. It’s okay to put your pajamas on even if you are not going to bed right away. I cannot stress it enough. It Is Okay! Don’t stress any more than you might already be stressing. (Easier said than done, I know. But, at least try?) And when you are back on your feet, then tackle the dishes and laundry. Take care of yourself first!

That is my word of the week. Balance. Know when you can do things and do them. Know when to rest and rest. Again, I repeat, it is okay.

Peace,

Kymberli
