Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.”
So I know something really great has happened in my life, and I made it happen and it’s a good investment/blah blah positive thoughts. lol but today, everything’s caught up with me. I can’t rest when I’m at home because there’s always some little thing I want to do to make it feel more like a home…scrub the kitchen sink or kitchen floor, dust the drawers, change up the layout of the closet, test the different settings on the AC, organize the cabinets, find the charger for the vacuum…so no, I’m not getting a lot of sleep. The fridge is sparse since again, I’m lucky to be going away for the weekend (and my birthday!) on Thursday, but thus I have no perishable food so my diet is effed. *I had McDonald’s for breakfast this morning and I’m sorry I’m not sorry.*
Once my parents left on Sunday afternoon, I locked the door behind them and fell asleep as soon as I put my ass down on my couch. Living with three people in a studio is exhausting. Living with two of the most critical people in your life is almost debilitating. I’m still waiting for my medal.
And now, on a holiday week at work, wheh things should otherwise be farily quiet, there’s been some great news for some of our programs and I’m the person responsible for pushing that information out to our clients.
One of my friends said, “You need to go home and just stare at the wall.” And she is so right!
