Gabbed w some friends lately & I/we realized that a lot has happened in the last 4 or 6 wks in my life (hence, perhaps, this sense of exhaustion).
For the last 2 yrs I’ve uprooted my life to relocate & reestablish myself in a new city. And for anyone who has done something similar before, you know what I mean when I say it can be super draining.
This summer, while there are adjustments that have happened/are happening that I can not control, there are some that I can. For those things, I have really exercising the word “no” if it doesn’t feel 100% like ‘the right place & time’.
And it has been incredibly liberating.
