Hit The Reset Button


“I need a break.”

“I need to get away.”

“I just need to make it through this week, this month, this year.”

We’ve all been there and I am currently in the midst of all of it at once.

It is times like these that I need to hit the reset button. I need to take a break and step away from the laptop. I need to rub my eyes and step out into the sun and feel the wind because if I don’t I forget why I am still doing this. We all need the break and we should take it whether it’s those 10 minutes while your nails are drying or the 15-minute break in between what feels like a neverending shift.

Sometimes we just need to go outside and reset.

Reset our way of thinking. Reset our way of breathing and living. Whatever we need to hit reset on in the moment but we need to do it. There’s no way to be your best self while running on empty. If we want to continue filling other people up with the energy we want to see in the world we must make sure that ours is the best it can be.

I know sometimes it can seem impossible like as I write this I can think of a million other things I need to get done but I need to reset in my own way and this is it.

So get out there and find your reset button and use it for your own sake. We all need a little break sometimes.

I promise we only come back better from it.
