I didn't write anything new/post for the first time in five years yesterday. Usually, I write two thousand words in my journal, on my blog, in my book that I'm working on, or just for practice. I started doing that back in high school so I could get better at writing. Since I was a junior in high school there's been about thirty or forty days total where I have not written anything. ..
I truly enjoy writing, a lot, in fact as soon as I wake up it's the first thing I think about, not food. (How sway? 😩)
However, I have a lot going on in my life right now. I'm moving. I'm starting a new business. I'm going to Canada and Alaska this weekend. I'm in a basketball league. Working out five times a week. I'm working on two books. I'm doing YouTube full time, writing full time, and managing my interpersonal relationships. Not to mention my speaking engagements that start again in July. I felt like yesterday was a "me" day. I wanted to just take a break from life, not because I'm overwhelmed, but because I wanted to give it the best energy possible. I knew I needed to recharge and reset. ..
I share this with you because I know for a fact that many of you are burning the candle from both ends. One reason I never get burnt out or tired is because I've learned when to say, "yo, this day needs to be about me and my healing." Don't assume that when I'm talking about healing I'm talking about death + heartbreak. Healing is anything that makes you feel better. Let me know if you're going to be taking a "me day" soon after reading this, talk to me in the comments so I know what's going on with you? .. (there are a few copies of my brand new book available, visit the link in my bio to get yours.)
