Yeah, the title says it all. Taking. Some. Time. For. Myself.
Lately I’ve been run ragged with a whole host of things. Nothing related to writing, but that only added to the amount of stuff that I needed to deal with. Weddings, stag and does, parties, weddings, girlfriends, showers, dog, kids, husband, hockey, Thanksgiving, office work, housework, laundry, dog, weddings, um, I think you get my drift.
I really felt like I was all over the place and as I look at what I just typed, I guess I freaking was! Now, a lot of it is my fault,that I can freely admit to. I spent a lot of time writing and let some things slide. Was it worth it? Totally! I can now say I’ve sold and in a year and a half strangers will (hopefully) be buying my book. So worth it! But I’m thankful that I did sell…nothing felt worse than thinking I was wasting my time on a dream that was not going to become a reality!
So, I’m at a new phase in this journey. It’s called the catch up so my house doesn’t fall apart phase! And it’s been time consuming….but I’ve managed to check off a lot of things on my to do list, and while there is still a ton of stuff that needs my attention, today I realized I needed attention.
So even though I was gonna be writing, doing some laudry and maybe getting into the office, I took the time to lounge in the jet tub, do my hair, put on some makeup and get dressed in some funky clothes. It felt good. I was getting way to used to hanging home in my jammies! I even got a few compliments when I ran a couple errands around town.
So, the soup in on the stove I feel good about myself and I’m going to get my 3k done!!!!
Take time for recharging the batteries people! Get a massage, read a book….or just do your hair! Whatever it takes to make you feel like you want to take on the world!
I’m curious…what do you do when you’re feeling a little overwhelmed???
