For no particular reason that I’m aware of, I woke up this morning emotionally drained and feeling sorry for myself. I tried to throw a pity party but was too lazy to reach out to any guests. After I draggggged myself out the bed and forced myself through the motions of getting my kid ready for school and on the bus, I strongly considered taking a mental health day. But I talked myself out of it and instead I made a cup of coffee with a hearty breakfast, showered, put on some funky leggings and beat my face. I also made sure to be gentle with myself and rub some lavender oil on my temples. I know I’m allowed to have moments, days, periods, etc. but most importantly I know I’ve got to keep going. Giving up would be easy and for some reason I prefer to live my life the hard way. Not really ready to take on the day, but I’m going to do it anyway. Wish me luck! .
