Are you backing yourself?
It took me a long time, but I'm learning to. I was in recharge mode this morning, but decided to go ahead and have lunch with my mother and sister anyway. And I'm so glad I just did it.
I've learned to back myself. For years my thoughts would go all over the place, going back and forth between wanting to go and also wanting to respect my body.
"Should I just go?"
"Is it wise?"
"Will I regret it later?"
"Am I pushing my body?"
Fair questions, but all that back and forth was a bigger drain on my energy than just making a decision and running with it.
So if you're right now questioning to do or not do some activity, here's my two cents:
Go with the option that makes you smile. And whatever you decide:
Go with your choice and decide, ahead of time, that it was the right call.
Don't torment yourself afterwards with "I should have done this" or "I shouldn't have done that".
You made the right call.
You got this. 💪
