You don’t have to have something on your calendar to be unavailable. Self Care is a perfectly good reason. No explanation necessary.
No matter how self aware we are there’s something inside of us that will over commit ourselves until we fall apart. That something inside of us desperately needs to prove our worth and value to take up space in this world. No amount of pressure we place on ourselves can make us superhuman or extend our ability to produce when we’re empty. Take time out for self care, so reset & restore.
