The courage to rest

(image by

This image and quote stirs up so many emotional for me: guilty, happy, sad, resentful. For many years I lived with this courage and was proud and now I find myself in another time and place. One where I feel guilt and shame if I’m tired or not at 100%. And then if course there’s the part of me that will judge that and be disappointed in myself for not doing something. We are our own worse critics.

To be kind to yourself is an amazing gift. One I need to remember. To be kind to others is another that is free to give. How might kindness to myself and others look?
