Yesterday, after finishing the daily task I had assigned myself, I felt exhausted. It showed up in the lines of my face. Some dear friends that I went to visit remarked to me that I needed to take better care of myself. Of course, I poop=poohed that idea by diving head-first into praising my hubby for all he had helped me to do.
Why is it so hard to admit to myself that I am and can be my own worst enemy?
Why am I so driven to over-do?
Yes, I have been very "up" lately and it has increased my energy levels somewhat.
However, In such times of elevated energy level, I know instinctively that I can and do over-extend myself.
So today is a Sabbatical. This morning I will take a long, leisurely bath, walk with the girls in the mall, do a small amount of Christmas shopping, and pay some outstanding bills. It is and will be enough for today.
The sore and achingness will subside and I will be back to my jolly ol' self.
