Take Your Sabbath Day

I struggle with not knowing when to stop. I don’t like wasted time. I feel I should be accomplishing something all the time. Even if it’s something small, I have to feel accomplished, or else I will feel like a failure.

The trouble with this is, I don’t know when to take a break. When I do decide to take a day for myself and just relax and do nothing (and let’s be honest, there is no such thing with kids, but hey a girl can try), I completely beat myself up for it.

I start to try to “convince” myself that it’s ok to chillax, your body needs a break too, you can’t take care of everyone else if you have nothing left to give. Then I feel guilty and so on and so forth.

If you’re like me, don’t beat yourself up. It’s ok to not go non stop. It’s ok to take a break. It’s ok to take care of you. Even though you feel like you’ve accomplished nothing, you’ve accomplished refueling yourself to get back in the game.

Don’t ever feel bad for giving yourself a day or a break. The Lord says you work for 6 days and rest on the 7th. You take your sabbath day! Recharge your soul so you can get back to being you!
