I sit here writing this blog as I blow my nose into a Kleenex (well actually toilet paper because I ran out of tissue 20 minutes ago)… too much info? Meh, this is where I am at.
I am someone who feels successful and accomplished once I have completed the tasks on my list, and when I am sick, many of those things have to get pushed or cancelled. I had to cancel a physiotherapy appointment, a massage (this sounds like diva-mode but I have chronic headaches/migraines so I need those), and left work early this week. These are some serious first world problems and I’m not writing this to complain but to just shed light on how busy our lives are. One little hiccup in my schedule, and I feel totally off track. This shouldn’t be!! I feel, as a North American, we are too busy. I love it and I love the hype, but I believe we need to put more value on self-care, downtime and family/friends time.
I am so busy all the time that I think when I am not occupied by something, I am useless - that is not a good way to feel! I should enjoy these moments (even though I am sick) to rest and take care of my body - which I try to do but my brain is like… LET’S GO!!!
We (a.k.a I) need to appreciate the slower and more relaxing moments in life. I feel like that subject is a whole other blog post on its own, so stay tuned for more of this conversation.
So yeah, just a quick lil’ rant on my sick day. 😀
