I'll be honest with you... I had no idea what to write about.
Usually, I have at least an inkling of what my topic will be before I sit down to type. But, this time????... Nope. Not one single ounce of inspiration.
I find myself in this space more often than I'm willing to admit. The place where you find it difficult to self-motivate. It's not that you don't have goals or things to get done... sometimes you're just too doggone drained to tackle anything all!
Then, it dawned on me. Maybe that IS my topic!
Often times we pour so much of ourselves into our families, our relationships, our careers, our organizations -- that we forget it's okay to *NOT* pour.
It's totally okay to take a break...
It's totally okay to not have the answer or advice...
It's totally okay to clock out!
"But, Valencia... I'm supposed to be every thing, to everyone, all the time!", said NO ONE.
Release yourself from the bondage of self-guilt. 'Cause guess what.... it will run you totally ragged!
So, do what you can, when you can... and, don't you feel any type of way about it!
Until next time,
