Sometimes we are just going to fail or have no desire to try.
There are days when I just don’t care. I feel tired, sick, lazy, spent, done, or, I just don’t want to do anything and I stay in my pajamas for no particular reason all day. I used to beat myself up for getting sick. I actually was mad at myself for doing something that I couldn’t control! Why? I would never get mad at any of my family members for getting sick. Except for that one time Dexter got sick at Disneyland, that sucked. But even then, I wasn’t “mad” at him just disappointed that I was missing out at my favorite place.
I have learned that I need to give myself a break. I need to stop judging myself so harshly and let it go. I don’t judge others who have rest days. In fact I admire them for it.
There are days that I don’t get out of my pajamas. There are days when I don’t brush my hair or wash my face (don’t tell my friend Shu Yiing). There are days where I just don’t care. I’m not sick, I’m not depressed, I am just not doing anything today.
I order pizza on my laptop (because I don’t want to talk to anyone) for my kid’s and watch tv. I am going to sit on the couch and even dress my girls in their pajamas without getting up, and then bribe one of my older kids to put them to bed for me.
Some days we just need this. Give yourself the pass on not being #1 today. Cheer someone else on while you’re sitting on your couch in pjs without brushed hair or teeth. Don’t beat yourself up there’s no point.
