Burn out

It has been a week. The problem is that I have nothing to complain about in this space. On top of having a job that I enjoy, I’m also grafting at my novel, trying to get it into the right place for it to go out to publishers. It’s a very exciting time but my daily routine of getting up at 5am, hitting the gym, showering and then working on my manuscript until I have to start my actual job at 9am is a lot. On top of that, I’m then trying to be present in all other aspects of my life. This all means that by Friday, I am absolutely done. That’s how I feel today. It’s the sense that if I don’t stop soon and take care of myself then I’m going to be a danger to myself.

More than anything, this is a reminder to everyone to look after yourselves, slow down and lean into a relaxed pace. I haven’t sat and read a book or had a bath in the longest time. Those are the kind of things I’m talking about. If I had time, I’d eat a whole pyramid of Ferrero Rocher while a Lush bath bomb did wonderful things between my thighs. That may well be my treat on Sunday night as a reward for getting through the week.

Exciting things are coming. I’m really proud of myself. I’m working hard to look after myself and set a future up that I can thrive in. For now though, just take care.
