You Don't Have to Do It All

Are you feeling exhausted? Overwhelmed? Overburdened and burned out?

That is a feeling that many of us live with. We accept every new chore or responsibility and heap it on the mountain of other items in our inbox, wondering if we will live to see the day that it is empty.

The truth is: you probably won't. That is the way life works. There is always something new. Always an item that will be completed late or not at all.

So, with that new knowledge, why worry?

Do what you can, and take care of you. If you don't have the time to relax and recharge, you are doing too much.

If your life is so full that you have no time for the things you love to do, you are doing too much.

So, what can you do?

1. Simplify- Let go of some of the extras in your life. Extra clothes that you never wear, items that are cluttering your space and meetings and events that are no longer meaningful to you.

2. Ask for help- There are beautiful souls on Earth and guides in Heaven that are just waiting for you to ask for assistance. Stop hesitating and feeling guilty, ASK!

3. Meditate- Put on earmuffs and a sleep mask if you must, just spend some time alone away from all of the things that have been causing you stress.

Don't feel guilty for doing this. If you want to be available to others, take care of yourself first. It is only when your own pitcher is filled with water, that you can pour some for others.

Take time for you. You deserve it! You are worth it! It is your birthright! You came to Earth to play the human game. Don't let others make the rules for you.
