Today I give from the heart.
It’s been an emotional few days. Not only are my hormones out of whack naturally, but there have been some upheavals at the office as well. I can’t seem to focus on what’s going on and I keep getting up late for work. I’m really beginning to feel run down. There is a part of me that even doubts this 29-gift journey will make a difference. Seven days in and the fact that I’m still turning my eyes outward is frustrating me.
I know that the exhaustion I feel is more than physical. It’s emotional. It’s mental too because my brain has been going 5 miles a minute. In my heart of hearts, I know I’d much rather be doing something else and that thought drags me down so much. What’s the point if we’re simply getting by and not living the life of our heart right? Yes, I have a plan and I’m working that plan, but this “in-between” time can be draining.
I’ve been faithful to gym, eating better and drinking more water. I’ve stuck to the goals I set for myself daily. But I’ve fallen short on my commitment to get more sleep. I’ve always had trouble sleeping and I try to get at least 5 hrs a night. But lately I need more that.
So today’s gift, is some much needed Vernette time. I need to give some “luv-ups” to myself. I skipped the gym, got home early for once, lit some candles and had a nice warm bath. I didn’t turn on the TV and quickly posted the last two “Days”. I made sure to turn the laptop off immediately. Then I made a nice, big, mug of hot chocolate and went to bed.
I’m gonna read Tying Rocks to Clouds by William Elliot until I fall asleep.
How do you spend your “me time”?
