Does anyones else get extremely overwhelmed in the best way possible. I'm usually not overwhelmed because I can't handle the projects I'm taking on, I'm overwhelmed that I'm getting projects that all fit in line with my career goals. It's just all happening at once :).
I work odd hours and often times a lot of hours so here's the thing... sometimes you have to recharge regardless of others desire to consume your energy.
I feel terrible when I hype my friends up. Case and point.
- "I wanna be Ratchet Ray tonight!"
- "We doing a walkthrough?"
I've even had the nerve to fake follow up:
- "Real talk we linking up or nah?"
Knowing good and damn well I was in my PJ's on my couch watching Viceland. Then it hit me. Ray you aren't going anywhere. I decided to wash dishes, start the grueling declutter process, and just rest. Like really rest.
I actually grappled with the idea of going out and turning up with the homies.
I'm happy I took care of me first.
I never really appreciated self care nor understood how important 'me time' was until this year. As an extrovert I'm always on the go and giving pieces of myself and after a while that gets exhausting.
Some nights I didn't even make it working on my computer, lol, I fall asleep on the couch, laptop on attempting to do more work. I don't even get past the log in y'all.
I am not Kevin Gates. I get tired.
My point is...
Sleep, rest, recharge, take time to love you, there are 52 weekends in a year to live it up. Take a few to focus on yourself. These parties, people, events, whatever... it'll all be there.
No one, I mean NO ONE, will love you like you love you. So love you first!
