Sometimes…it’s ok to be completely uninspired.
(as in completely and utterly blank upstairs. for reals.)
Sometimes…it’s ok to dread the week and “can’t wait” for the weekend.
(as long as this doesn’t turn into “rushing” through your days…life is too short for that).
Sometimes…it’s ok to shut the world out, disconnect from everything and everyone and just be.
(I need to do more of this…)
Sometimes…it’s ok to eat an entire watermelon (almost) by yourself in under three days.
(this happens more than I’d like to admit…)
Sometimes…it’s ok to put your relationship first, and it’s always ok to *not* apologize for doing so.
(we’ve become notorious for this, and nope, I don’t feel bad at all for doing it.)
Sometimes…it’s ok (and needed) to feel the emotion before moving on. Cry if you need to. Scream if it helps. Whine if you must. But feel it. Acknowledge it. Then move on.
(another “thing” I need to get better at…)
Sometimes…it’s ok to want more for your friends, your siblings, your parents, and loved ones. And to get frustrated when you see them get in their own way. Again and again.
(but recognizing that you can’t “fix” everyone is important to remember, too…)
Sometimes…it’s ok to eat the cookie you’ve been daydreaming about.
(just make sure it’s homemade, all REAL ingredients, please.)
Sometimes…it’s ok to want to workout every single day, sometimes twice a day. Sweat feels good.
(just so long as you honor the rest day, even if you *want* to skip one now and then…)
Sometimes…it’s ok to look in the mirror in that new bathing suit you just bought and actually not hate your reflection.
(and not fearing vanity because of it…this one is a work in progress)
Sometimes…it’s ok to daydream about the moment you ‘earn’ the 26.2 sticker for your car and want to throw up just a little bit.
(just remember…embrace the process, don’t fear it.)
Sometimes…it’s ok to drink wine (almost) daily. Especially ok when it fits into your (food) log for the day. 😉
(particularly when you have an epic return trip to wine country coming up in two weeks…gotta ‘practice’, right?)
