Right now in this moment, I am writing to you all in a state of “me” time. I’ve always been the type of person to crave time by myself. Don’t get me wrong…I love hanging out and having a good time with my tribe of friends, but how can I be the great friend they need if I’m not okay? If you are always giving giving giving and givinggg your energy to others, and never taking the time to step back and breathe for your sake, eventually you’re going to feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and easily irritated.
Trust me, it happens to the best of us. It’s okay to say no, ya know? Real friends and love ones aren’t suppose to be a group of “yes men” where your entire relationship is based off of pleasing the other. On the flip side, even running around doing numerous activities for yourself can take away from the time we all need in observing how we are actually doing. Have you ever taken just 5 minutes out of your day to just reflect on yourself. Sometimes you gotta vibe alone to really figure things out that are going on from within. Below are a few things I like to do by myself to show love and appreciation to ME:
♥️Wine & Dine: All it takes is about one glass of wine for me and I’m out like a rock, but while I’m sippin, I love to have one of my fave meals or sweets to go with it, while I watch my shows. It’s the perfect combo to let your mind be at ease and your tummy will love you for it too!
♥️Pretty Doesn’t Hurt: Who doesn’t love a nice facial & bubble bath? This is probably my favorite way to relax and wind down from a long week. Put together a playlist for this one and light a candle. 🤗 #totalrelaxation
♥️WWJD: Get in the W O R D❗️ This is hands down my go to when I really need some uplifting and recharging for my inner peace. Praying, meditating, and studying over the Word of God is so powerful! I usually like to reflect over notes I took from a sermon or I’ll check out a plan from the Bible App. 🙏🏽👍🏽
Well, those are just a few of many suggestions I personally enjoy. Whatever works for you is beneficial!! I promise that you, as well as others around you, will be glad that you took the time to be with yourself because a pitcher is not able to pour out water if it’s empty.
Feel free to comment below some ways you like to give back to yourself ♥️
Be confident and in control of your space 😘
