Dear Miss Exhausted,


Let me first assure you that it’s okay. I’m here to remind you that you are HUMAN. As powerful as you are, and by all means a BOSS,  life still has a way of making us fold from time to time. 


Girl, REST.


A day in the life of a woman as independent and determined as you can be as rewarding as it is draining. Physically. Emotionally. Mentally. Whew... I don’t know how you, me, we do it. Honestly, I’m impressed. But that’s a letter for another day. For now,


Just REST.


I don’t think you need me to tell you how. You know what puts your mind at ease; what pushes the chaos to the background while you recharge; what reminds you to breathe. Give yourself permission to do it, whatever it is. 


All those things and people that need you, make them wait for once. And I challenge you to be UNAPOLOGETIC and stand firm in the decision to take some peace for yourself. You are ENTITLED to a little peace with as much as you grind, give, and love. But Girl, it’s on YOU!


So, REST. And tell me how you feel in the morning.
