Pushing Through

Pushing Through

Some days, it is worth it to push myself to do a few activities. Today, for instance, my body is sore and quite stiff, and my exhaustion is pretty high. But I felt compelled to push through and do a couple of the things I needed to do anyway. Now I feel better about relaxing, doing nothing productive, taking it easy, now that I did at least a few things that needed to be done.

Other days, I can’t do shit. My body knows it, I know it, and it’s fine. There will be other days where I AM able to do a few things before crashing, like today. I am pleased that I pushed myself today, while in pain and exhausted, to do these couple of things that took less than an hour total. I do feel better for it 🙂 Not physically of course, but mentally. And hey- I’ll take feeling better about myself today, in whatever form that may come: physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually – whatever.

Are you pushing through pain and/or exhaustion today to do a thing or two? Or are you taking it easy and just letting yourself be? What activities or reasons are you more likely to push through for, and less likely to push through for? Let me know in the comment section below.

    • Glad you were able to get out a little bit at least Carrie 🙂 Definitely worth it when we can. Then tonight had to cancel plans from being so sore, but at least I was able to be out and about for a bit today as well. Soft hugs, from Jessie

    • Glad you are listening to your body and taking it easy Ella. I had to do the same for my body as well today. But at least I got to be a little productive yesterday! 🙂 All is not lost.
