The last few weeks have been a little crazy!
Between getting a transfer at work, going on vacation, battling a severe cold w/ fever and trying (unsuccessfully) to make time for my family, friends, and relationship I have been all over the place and I am exhausted.
I hadn’t thought about it much until after I found myself almost fainting on my way to brunch over the weekend, but aside from the few days I spend out of the states I really hadn’t taken much time for myself in the last month or so. By trying to fulfill both professional and personal obligations I’ve neglected my body and that goes against everything I have tried to instill in myself.
I’ve been sick on the verge of death ? for a week (ok I’m exaggerating, ???? but still!) and have taken very little time to recover because I convinced myself that I needed to be at work or needed to be there for my loved ones when in reality I could have and definitely should have just stayed home. I have been exhausted and have dragged myself out of bed near tears (more exaggeration from your favorite drama queen ??) to hang out when the only place I should have been dragging myself to was the doctor’s.
So this post is really just a reminder for me (and you) to remember to love and take care of me (you) first. Although it’s generally horrible to be a flake (eternal side eye to flaky “friends”?) if I need to cancel my day to take care of myself it’s not the end of the world.
Girl talk is medicinal, laughs with family warms your soul, and cuddles with Bae makes all of life’s problems disappear, but also take time for yourself to make sure you’re here to enjoy those things. My job will get done, my family and friends will still be there and I can catch up on everything when I’m better.
And if anyone has a problem with that they can see these guys!
