I am grateful for this reminder, as I was well on my way to take on too much stuff again. I'll increase my supplements a bit, lay off the running in favour of yoga, and P90X (running the way I do it, pumps out too much adrenaline) and I'm trying to, as gracefully as possible, cut things out from my "to do list".
This "high achiever" personality is what got me into trouble in the first place (among a few other contributing factors).
Yesterday I battled with my ego, who seemed to urge me to "do" and I read a book and took a nap instead. I didn't fully manage to shut my ego guilt up, but I balanced my normally "full on, catch up" Sunday with more rest than I normally would have.
While I'm not out of the woods yet (Im feeling just as tired and sluggish as I ever have, today) this time I know to I allow myself to "slack off" and carve out time to rest, and just breathe through the commands from my ego slave driver.
Not too long ago, I would have reached for another cuppa caffeine, gone for a run or otherwise tried to stimulate my adrenals to give me another adrenaline fix.
This also coincides with my renewed commitment to find time and space to meditate and connect with my inner guidance. I SO will. I will not get caught in an adrenal tailspin like this, next time life throws me for a loop.
(And the high achiever/ego in me *yells!* "Hurry up with the meditating, I think it would be so cool to see whe the inner guidance takes me." *sigh*)
