No pressure or anything, but there are less than 70 days left in 2014.
That’s only a few weeks left to finish projects…but I’m okay with that because that permission I gave myself a few weeks ago is going pretty strong. I recently gave myself permission to go to bed early instead of working on a new landing page. I gave myself permission to spend a little longer at the climbing gym than I originally planned instead of getting home to vacuum during a decent hour (I hate being that neighbor who thinks it’s ok to vacuum at 9:00 pm). Telling myself that it’s ok for me to take more time for myself rather than crossing things off of my to do list has been great. It’s also keeping me motivated to work on projects instead of getting burned out from forcing myself to work on a project when I know I could be doing something else.
So give yourself permission to spend a little more time on yourself this weekend.
