I love this time of year as it always brings with it so many opportunities to share love, be with family, and reflect on growth.⠀⠀
This season I’ve been thinking a lot about 2019. Last year I declared 2018 was a year to put my family first. And y’all I messily stumbled the year through that one.
2018 brought a lot of clarity and a LOT of soul work. Discovering I was a workaholic (and am still battling this), which stems from a crippling anxiety and fear of what others think of me, an overachiever, to measure and live up to certain expectations…I learned that the reason I struggled to put my family first is that those sweet people love me no matter what. I feel secure in them. So I instead of focusing on them because I felt safe there I strive to please everyone else (which spoiler alert: is impossible).
It was a hard ugly fight. A fight that I’m still in…but 2018 is almost over and I’m proud of the progress made. Through this year, something I became very aware of is that taking care of me – even just basic things like getting enough sleep or alone time (cause introverts need it) often took a back seat to everything and everyone else.
I think it’s easy to say we are going to do something but even harder to make that something a reality. This year I’m not just choosing a word or making a resolution. I’m creating an action plan to truly cultivate rest and self-care in my life. I’ve been researching and I’ve made this (easy) list of ten ideas. Some of these recurring daily or weekly acts and some, one & done events.
Will you join me, friend? Your list does NOT have to look like mine. But if you are like me, always putting yourself at the bottom of the totem pole, maybe rest and self-care need to be a focus in 2019. Whatever your resolution is, I wanna help keep you accountable! Will you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what your resolution(s) is?
