118 Nikki Etherington ~ “Don’t feel guilty for taking time for yourself.”

August 8, 2019

  • "Sometimes it’s a matter of picking your battles where I’ve had to sacrifice one thing for another."
  • "It forces me to completely disconnect from my work world because I HAVE to stay focused to survive."
  • "I was just waiting for the impact because I could not slow down."
  • "Don’t listen to the inner demons that tell you that you don’t deserve this."

"I think the hardest part is the guilt; once you get past the fact that you can be selfish then you are able to get out of your own way."
~ Nikki Etherington
