Knowing My Limits

Lately I have been placing my entries in here and coming up with great ideas of what to write about. Generally the words have been flowing. Today they’re not, and the main reason why is that I need to rest.

I just got off the highway a few hours ago from my half day’s drive home from seeing my partner and I’m exhausted. To add to that exhaustion, when I reached my driveway, I encountered piles of snow that were blocking me from parking with enough space for my roommates car so I had to shovel for about 10 minutes.

Needless to say, I’m beat. I just ran to the store and got some Epsom Salt and some muscle soothing seaweed and took a bath for 30 minutes. I’m definitely going to turn in early tonight.

The main point I’d like to make today is that it’s common for human beings to go beyond their limits and pay the price for it later. I’m a known offender of this. I like to push and push and push myself until I end up regretting it later. Today I’m not going to do that. While there’s a few things I’d like to do like come up with a more thought provoking blog entry, I decided it was better to just write this and say I’m taking it easy tonight. And that’s ok…

Knowing my limits is important. My body has a built in mechanism to tell me when to take it easy and relax. I hear those bells going off right now telling me to do just that so I’m going to go take care of me now…

Peace, love, light, and joy,
