Today when I woke up I knew it would be a lazy day. The rain was rough and loud. It made we want to be warm and lazy. I was up earlier than normal so I needed the short energy nap to get that burst.
Limits are set not by goals but by your body telling you this is the time to relax. I did not want to relax today due to I do need to hit my goals and numbers for the day.
Upon welcoming new members I preach "it is not about the numbers, it is about making yourself happy and being able to say, "I did good." "
I did not hear that today after the energy nap. I had no energy! Your mind can tell you what needs to be done and tell you it is what is best for you, but if you just do not have it, you don't have it! The "it" is knowledge of when to say it is time to rest and this is what is best for you and not have the guilt to go along with it. Not saying the guilt will not be there because it will, the empowerment of allowing your body to heal and take in the cleaning and restructuring it has been doing will be better and you will not feel the guilt. Guilt itself is not something we actually feel it is a concious decision and thought.
Through our journeys, we all will have ups and down. But you will be able to see "A Clear Day When It Rains". So on those rainy days when you want to just stay warm, do it and make yourself happy!
