    Thanks Rachel for sharing you thankfulness. It is certainly the season to reflect on this.
    On thinking 🤔 about the shoulds…I have stopped being so hard on myself. I now allow myself not to have to make the bed on the weekends unless I want to. It seems crazy though it feels so good. Life is good; though Mon- Fri. Work is often a burn on & by Thurs of the week I am pooped. Just simple things help & I find myself being more creative as a result.
    Be Blessed & Happy Holidays to you & all my fellows Social workers.

    I find myself in your position all too often. Especially as a mom, I feel guilty taking any me time. Thanks for spelling it out so logically. Life WILL continue even when we press pause and take care of ourselves.
