Take A Break.


Resting, saying no, and being okay with anything less than perfection has never been easy for me. I've always been the person that constantly feels the need to be working and I have always been a "yes" person without thinking something through. Learning to pause and know that it's okay to say no is a new concept for me honestly. I found myself in a position like this today. I said no to a project and my world didn't crumble...shocker. Not only was everything okay, but I felt good. I was proud of myself to knowing my limits. There will be more projects and opportunities in the future. 

Resting is another hard pill to swallow for me. I'm not myself AT ALL if I am tired, but at the same time I have a hard time saying no if a friend wants to hang out. Just like I said about opportunities, your friends will always be there and there will always be more Friday nights at Stars to go have fun. Sometimes you just need some downtime, and that is fine. Basically, I just need to take my own advice haha. 

Thanks for reading this little ramble of a blog post! It's a bit all over the place but just writing it out feels good to me. Take care of yourself, know that it's okay to say no, and know its okay to take some downtime and breathe.
