I’m tired this week. And the old patriarchal construct of my mind would be saying things like “push through”, “why are you so tired”, “you must need to do more of A,B,C”, and the like. But there is no more room in my head and my heart for that type of pressure and unbalanced masculine energy. (And when I refer to masculine, I’m not referring to gender.) instead I am leaning into softness and compassion. Moving through my days without rushing. Taking time for writing and deep breaths. Afternoon matcha and reading with my three year old.
Notice if you are being overly harsh on yourself, take a deep breath and bring forth more compassion and nurturing. You deserve it.
