I don't want to go into details, but this past weekend my body literally told me to STOP.
For the past couple of months, I've keep myself busy. One thing is to keep a work-life balance and then there's what I was doing: trying to do everything. I was going to school three times a week, working five times a week, volunteering, going out on my days off, not resting. I'm twenty-one, so sometimes I might think that I'm invincible and that I can rule the world with the tip of my finger... WRONG. This past weekend, I had the choice to take a day off and relax. To step back and have time to myself and do the things that bring me back to my center. Did I do that? Nope! I decided to fully schedule the whole day! There was literally something I had to do for every hour of the day until like 9:00 PM. It was too late by then.
Long story short, I ended up getting really really sick. I wasn't able to work the whole weekend and I work for a church, so not working during a weekend is a big deal. I decided to share this because I learned the importance of taking care of yourself. Your body will make you STOP if you don't. Take time for yourself. Relax. Read one of your favorite books. Watch Netflix. You won't be able to do all the other tasks if you don't feel good. Everything you do depends on how you choose to take care of yourself.
