This #MondayMotivation post was supposed to be done……this weekend before Monday even came. And here I am, writing it in the few hours left of Monday. Because today was mostly a mess. Honestly, this past week, I was all over the place emotionally and mentally, and I still hadn’t recovered.
So this quote is to encourage y’all and myself who are maybe just hanging on these days. Whether it’s because of grief, burnout, stress, anxiety, fear, or whatever else. I’m glad we made it through today.
Hustle culture and social media have really lowkey programmed us to feel like we’re supposed to have it all together all the time. And, if we don’t, we’re failing or not trying hard enough. Or at least that’s how I’ve been feeling lately again. And I know now that that’s not ever going to be the case.
Some days…are crappy. Completely For a bunch of different reasons. It may have taken all the energy you had just to get up and get your day started. I know those feelings. So, if all you did was keep it together by the skin of your teeth, that’s a win. Today…I took it so easy, that I almost felt bad. I answered emails from my couch while I watched TV. Then I logged off early just to do some cleaning because I didn’t have the time or energy to do it this weekend. That’s my win. I’m going to bed to pray, get my heart and mind right, and try again tomorrow.
