|Did you know that “merry” comes from an Old German word for “slow” or “leisurely”? |
I know! Not the vibe we typically associate with the end of the year, right?
In the holiday hoopla, we forget all too easily that relaxing, reminiscing, savoring moments alone or with family and friends, and simply BEING are what give us energy.
Nature takes breaks and so can – and so should – we!
So, as this year winds down, I hope you’ll give yourself the gift of downtime and rest!
Perhaps like many people – me included! – you might find yourself not measuring up to your own expectations when you take stock of the year.
Remember, no matter how much you did or did not achieve in (insert whatever year you’re reading this :-)), you are still worthy. So, go easy on you!
Here are some affirmations that might help.
I have done enough.
I created enough.
I offered my best to this year.
I am allowed to take time to rest.
Other people’s accomplishments have no bearing on my own worth.
Would you like some support in making those affirmations stick? Coaching can help!
