Take a deep breath and get present. I want you to actually read and take in these words, versus just skimming over them and dismissing them.
With each line, allow the truth to sink deep into your body:
Life is not a race; perfection doesn’t earn me points.
I’m not more valuable because I achieved this accolade or that status or finished this or that before others.
It isn’t about what I do, it’s about who I am.
It matters that I take the time to heal myself the way I need.
It matters that I give myself the space to feel all the emotions that come up at certain times or on certain days.
Taking the time to give myself what I need isn’t an indulgence, it’s a necessity.
It matters that I’m gentle with myself and I love myself.
Sometimes that means stopping all doing and giving myself the space to breathe and to be.
Sometimes that might mean motivating and pushing myself.
Regardless of whether I’m in a phase where I need to be more or to actually get up and do more, I matter.
My presence in the world matters.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
