Day 57 - Taking the time when I can to rest

Rest is eluding me a bit over the last few days. This week is feeling incredibly ๐Ÿ’ซ heavy ๐Ÿ’ซ.


Playground meltdowns. Being in the process of saying goodbye to our old dog. Being up every couple of hours with a newborn. Feeling like I am in perpetual bear mode. Not having the mental capacity to entertain a toddler. Waking up for the day from 2.30am-3am because that feels like the only time I can catch my breath, whilst knowing this is adding to my exhaustion.


It's all just a bit heavy.


I adore not overloading myself with tasks. I adore postponing things or pushing something to the next day if I have no energy. So, I will continue to ask myself today as I do most days, what do I feel like doing today and what can wait.


Then this afternoon I am giving Mr F screen time when Miss E is asleep and I am doing nothing because yes, rest is effing magical isnโ€™t it Juliet! (Thank you for these words!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜).


Boom.


Sending love to you if today feels hard for you as well. I hope you can find some space for you, I hope you can lay the f&*% down.


This image I will call Flower Let Down and is actually breastmilk falling from red flowers ๐Ÿ˜‚. I love it lol.
