Yesterday my body decided it needed a break and I had to take a few hours rest. My fingers wouldn’t type and my brain turned into a fog. I went too many hours without sleep in the past few weeks and I finally had to stop everything.
My plan to have rest days during the past few weeks turned into nights of waking up at 3:00 in the morning to make more piece or get in my blogging. The warning signs were already here and I didn’t listen. My husband listened to my dribble and the way I didn’t respond back to him when I drove him to work should have been another warning sign.
One long cat nap later and I shed my layers of zombie. I felt a little more human and I’m taking things a little easier despite the fact that I have another event this Saturday. I’m settling for a few good pieces and not stressing over a dozen. Trying not to be too hard on myself is always a challenge because I have an entrepreneur mindset and I try to do it all.
When I lay my head on my pillow after a long night of creating my miniature worlds, my mind tells me that I didn’t get my novel finished. I could stay up and do one more thing. Yeah, I tell myself to stop and go to sleep a lot these days. A lot of my stress is self-created.
I know the weekend is coming but maybe it’s time for all of us to slow down. Doodle instead of journal for 5-10 minutes. No pressure on yourself as you move into the weekend. Start to slow down and just enjoy what’s around you.
My posts are Monday through Friday.
