Exhausted, busy, overwhelmed, .....they are not personality traits 🙅♀️
They are not characteristics or identities
They do not *make* you who you actually ARE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are not innately exhausted; you feel exhausted or you feel sleep deprived. You need more sleep. Or better sleep. Or a full night’s sleep. But exhausted doesn’t make you who you are.
Your days can be busy, your diary can be busy, but YOU are not busy to the core of your being.
Feeling overwhelmed may be your current “state”. It may describe HOW you are right now but it doesn’t describe WHO you are.
I feel exhausted by the lack of sleep
I feel busy caring for 4 kids
I feel overwhelmed by all the things I need to do
But they are not my identity.
I AM passionate and loud
I AM intuitive and thoughtful
I AM caring, welcoming, generous, real, strong, brave, resilient, confident and powerful.
I am me. - 2 hours ago
