Today, I needed a moment. Like everyone, there are times when life is just too overwhelming to deal with. Usually, I just try to push through whatever it is because I don’t have the time to deal with it. Work, kids, family, bills, life just all get in the way.

Some days you just have to give yourself your moment. Taking a minute to acknowledge the overwhelming feelings or situation you’re experiencing not only allows you to move on but it also reminds you that you are a worthwhile person and your needs are just as important as anyone’s.

So, the next time you find yourself in need of a moment–to express joy, sorrow, excitement, frustration, whatever–do it.
