.

And I have been for few days,

if I am honest

.

Exhausted from work.

.

Exhausted from the lack of sun and warm

.

Exhausted from not having my friends around

.

Exhausted from everything and anything.

.

Every little thing seemed just extra weight on my shoulders.

.

Business, work, Covid, financials, mental health, seemed way too much to hold together.

.

And in all the turmoil the need to control made me go deeper in override.

.

More structure, more presence, more commitment, more exercising, more healthy eating.

It's a feeling, in your Spirit and your Body.

.

The low energy, the uninspired days, the boredom.

.

The lack of joyful moments, the lack of smiles on your face.

.

A grey cloud engulfs you and you are just moody, not able to pinpoint why.

.



Even your body hurts, stress takes over your back, neck, and shoulders and you feel tons heavier.

.

And you feel like Don Chisciotte, silly fighting against windmills.

.

You feel lonely trying to do a job that gives you purpose and a good income.

.

You feel sad because you are so tired that you can't give yourself to your loved ones.

.



You feel bad because your reactions are way more emotional than it's needed, and you know it, but you can't stop. After all, when you are exhausted you can't control it.

.

Even if you know better, even if you have done better in the past.

.

You know that to be at your b


est, you have to take care of your energy.

.

Refill your passion, spend time having fun, not just working.

.

Have inspiring conversations and bounce ideas with other inspired people, not just lifting others.

And so I did. Took a week off.

.

Did the world stop spin?

No.

.

Did all the work I had done previously disappear living me in dangerous waters?

No.

.

Did I lose friends because I didn't reply instantaneously to messages?

No

.

During this week, with the pc close


d, I spent meaningful time with my family and my friends, soaking up the beauty of nature at home, finding even more reasons why I walk the path that I walk, and more inspiration in the next steps.

.

When you live a life aligned to your higher values, you can walk fearlessly.

.

you stop following what society tells you is important, and you focus on what is important to you, making sure that you get enough of it every day.

.

From that clarity and alignment, you can make choices that resonate and that give you more and more peace of mind, and fulfillment.

.

Because your cup will be full, you will be able to pour into others.

.



No more "yes, but..." or yes when you mean no, and vice-versa.

.

Thoughts aligned action, for a smoother ride, without bumps.

.

And when you will be tired again, you will be able to stop, breathe, reassess and take that time off if that's what you need.

.

Because you know that self-depletion doesn't serve you and your cause.

.

And if you read until here, now you know, and you have a choice.
