Happiest of birthdays to my sister, best friend, partner, and PT. I love you. Welcome to 30!
I finally had a chance to hit “reset” this weekend.
And do the things I needed to do to just relax. Recharge. Get my mind and body right.
The past month has seen a lot. A conference. A short vacation. A job ending. A job beginning. I was gone 2.5 out of the past 5 weeks. I was exhausted - mentally and physically.
Although I didn’t get nearly as much sleep as I wanted, I did go to bed earlier than normal and slept in later than usual. My feet are raw from wearing the wrong shoes, so I avoided shoes all weekend. I went to yoga. I got a massage. I spent time relaxing with my people. I didn’t do anything that wasn’t a necessity.
Self-preservation is easily forgotten, but is so important. For the first time in a long time, my fingers aren’t (as) numb; my back isn’t aching; I feel whole.
