The past week has been rough on me. After the holiday weekend, I had absolutely no motivation to do anything. I felt like a zombie most days - going to work and coming back without truly feeling awake or energized by my everyday routine. All I've wanted to do all week is snuggle under the covers at home while admiring my Christmas decorations! (And honestly, who can blame me for that?)

On weeks like this, I used to beat myself up about it - frustrated that I wasn't getting anything done and constantly wondering what was wrong with me. Nowadays, I'm a little kinder to myself. I know that phases like this typically don't last forever and instead, I let myself have those unproductive days. Whether that means cozying up in a favorite stripey sweater or binge watching four hours of TV in one night - I find that if I let myself just be where I need to be that day, the phase usually passes. No one is perfect and we can't possibly be at 100% every day, so be kind to yourself today ♥
