My birthday gift: I can do it all, but I shouldn’t

I have come to dislike when people referred to me as superwoman or supermom. For I am neither. I’ve done what I can. I’ve tried my best.

Let me backtrack .

There was a time when I did buy into the superwoman label. I was doing it all. And, I was great at it all. I could do it.  But, there’s a but. All that comes with a price.

And, today on my birthday I am gifting myself this bit of advice: I can do it all, but I shouldn’t.

My head, my body and my spirit need a break. I need to focus on me in a positive way. I need to help myself step back and do what I realistically can manage. I won’t just satisfice and do the bare minimum. That is not in my DNA. However, I must  exhale.
