“Human beings grow best with love and encouragement. Today, let every word you speak (to yourselves and others) be filled with kindness.” I want to be doing things, but the best thing I can do is rest so I don’t get worse.
I often start to put myself down for not being ‘normal’ or capable at this point, but really that’s not being supportive of myself. I remind me that I am supposed to be my own best friend.
What would a best friend tell me? “They’d say REST! You are doing the best you can, be kind to yourself, stop being mean to yourself. Everyone needs rest time, not just you!” Being chronically ill is a balancing act, a push and pull of desire to be doing things and managing your level of ability. I ALWAYS overdo it because it’s so easy to do.
So another day of being in bed and taking care of myself so I can kick ass soon.
Please be kind to yourself today as I am my friends because if you are running on empty, how can you nurture and give to others?
Wishing you kindness,
Aka Queen Babs, cup of tea in hand
