Human Nature believes in making doing business with compassion the norm. Every personal care, cosmetic, and home care product we put on the market is filled with goodness. Each sale goes to pursposely pushing for dignified wages, ensuring ethical sourcing and caring for those at the fringes of society.
Our jobs are important but they’re not essentials.
I’ve been having to remind myself that while working furiously (by this, I mean intensely & with all my heart) is great — I shouldn’t let my 9 to 5 steal occupy more space in my life than it should. It’s been happening in the last 3 months — work took a seat a my dinner table, I showered with it, I dreamed it, I asked my spouse about it. It edged essential things out.
I let my “today” items (the deadlines, the emails & calls to return, the targets to meet) overtake things I desperately needed for more “tomorrows” (self-care, prayer, time with family, sleep).
Tomorrow is Monday. I think it’s time I put today down.
