Empowered to Party

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Today I want to empower myself to do what I want and not feel bad about it. Tell me if you ever struggle with this…

You work really hard all week, you get things done, check things off and make real headway, but because the blinders have been up, the moment something recreational comes up, you shy away because you don’t feel as though you deserve the break. Or in general you just don’t know how to reward yourself properly.

If one of these scenarios are true for you, welcome to my world. What with my impending launch date, as exciting as it may be, I do feel as though I can’t give myself time to just have fun.

But it’s nonsense. Because what was one of my resolutions this year?

Oh ya, balance.

I was talking to my girl Beau last night and she really helped me to see that point. Without negative, there can’t be positive, without rest there can’t be rejuvenation and without serious fun there can’t be serious work. And doesn’t that famous line go, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?”

I thought as much.

So today I’m going to a party. I’ve done my work well this week and I have a meeting tomorrow that I’ve prepared for, so why not reward myself. I’m going to unplug, enjoy my friends and just let loose for the night.

If you see a problem with this then please share, but truthfully I think I’m doing the right thing for me, in this here moment.

Empowerment - check!
