Personal Reflection

Why I Took Time Off

Last month, I took some time off to recover from one of the worst headaches I had in twenty years.

So I didn’t write as much as I would’ve liked. I didn’t get a blog post up that day. I didn’t journal either. I fell in and out of sleep all night.

I’m feeling much better now. I plan to make up what I missed as much as I can.

Instead of pushing myself too far, I put my health first. I realize the importance of taking care of my body and brain. It’s difficult to do well when I’m not feeling well.

Even though I didn’t want to miss a day of blogging and journaling, the world didn’t end when I woke up the best day.

I wasn’t sleeping as much as I needed to, and I think the lack of rest got to my head…literally.

So I’ll try to take things easier until this storm passes. I like to think it’ll be over soon.

I’m far from being at one hundred percent. I know I need time to rest and recharge. Maybe I’ll take more days off in the future.

Despite having only 24 hours in a day like everyone else. I don’t want to give anything up.

As always, I feel like a lot of my problems would go away if I had 25 hours.

Regardless, tomorrow is a new day. I’ll make the most of all the 24 hours I have.

  1. Taking care of yourself has to be first, despite anything else. It’s hard, especially when you’re passionate about what you do and you’re a hard worker. So I totally understand that. But sometimes this is a gentle reminder to take a step back and breathe for a moment.
