I thought I was a slacker for several years in a row. Turns out, I’m a super fired up and effective human when I’m not compromising pieces of myself in environments that don’t love me. Funny how that works. It’s kind of a pattern of me I guess, in all areas of life. But the one thing about being an enthusiastic go-getter that wants to weave dreams, is that it’s exhausting AF because you can never quite seem to shut off and unwind.
Last week, I forced myself to have a week of bubble baths where I was physically unable to check both my laptop and my phone. I know I have a lot to do in a short space of time, but I’m hearing (and feeling) loud and clear that if I don’t take care of myself and relax, I won’t be able to maintain the work long term. Podcast is a marathon, not a sprint. And I’m not one of those hardcore runners (I’m not a runner in the first place - bad for the knees) so I’m just going to try to go at a reasonable pace, even if at times I feel (incredibly) impatient.
14 Days Until I take off for the adventure abroad! Super anxious as it feels like everything is going to change (even more) in my life while I’m there / when I get back. But I’m also really excited to eat good (cheap) food and start all my days with a deep tissue massage. That’ll be serenity. I can feel it, now!
