“Accept yourself. Love yourself as you are. Your finest work, your best movements, your joy, peace, and healing comes when you love yourself. You give a great gift to the world when you do that. You give others permission to do the same: to love themselves. Revel in self-love. Roll in it. Bask in it as you would sunshine.” ~ Melodie Beattie.
This week has been absolutely incredible, I can safely say my life is certainly very charmed. As usual tho I have exhausted myself and this week I have been running around London like a crazy lady and found a whole new level of exhaustion. I went to London for some meetings and sight seeing ( I absolutely crammed my days with so much it was ridiculous ) but I kept a couple of hours free to allow myself to self care and relax a little ( mainly to stop a major melt down ). What better way to escape the speed of a city than wandering around a museum at a slow pace taking in some beautiful art. I know I constantly go on and ramble about self caring and mental health but it’s something I feel is very important and it seems the most neglected part of our daily lives. How can you be the best possible version of yourself if you are exhausted or run down, a couple of hours a week to yourself for yourself could make you more productive and energetic during the rest of the week. It also gives you time to really notice what’s going on with your health and allows you to look out any problems or niggles you are having in a new way.
Living in the UK we are extremely fortunate to live pretty close to everything, you can drive to any coast in less then a day. I live within an hour of three major cities, three cities can hold a lot of museums and galleries. Even my local town has a museum, ok it’s a train museum but it is a museum and maybe I will learn something new about trains. So why not check out your local museum and spend a couple of hours wandering around looking all mysterious and hopefully learning something interesting.
