Nothing. I’ve got nothing. I planned out a blog topic for every single day this month as part of my Falling in Love with the Journey series. I joined the Nester and 1600 other writers in the Write 31 Days, and I was excited to push myself out of my comfort zone and strive for excellence in my writing.
Just like any good person planning on being successful, I made a plan and then began my execution of this plan. Except, today I’ve got nothing. I’m not even half way through this month and my brain is frozen solid.
There is some irony in the fact that my writing is coming up empty handed, because today’s post topic is about resting on the journey. It’s important to make a plan, and then to hustle to make that plan happen, but just as important as hustling, we must listen and trust ourselves. Today, I hear myself saying it’s time for rest.
I could stress myself out trying to come up with some witty or emotional tear jerker on rest on the journey, I could push myself until I’m sick, exhausted and lost on my journey, or I can just practice what I preach, and rest.
Today, I make no apologies, I shun guilt, and I take a deep breath as I practice taking care of myself.
So, how about you? What do you hear you telling yourself? Do you need to rest? Will you join me? Tomorrow our plans will be waiting for us.
