taking it easy • since treatment last week to give my immune system a boost, I have been weak and low on energy. A feeling I quickly forget was the norm for so long. Seeing my immune function at a lower number than it has been for over a year, was a much-needed wake-up call that these late nights, early mornings and must-work 24/7 mind-set is getting me no where.
I forget (and stubbornly choose to ignore) the fact that I take longer to recover than I would like to believe. Sometimes we need little nudges from the Universe to wake us up and take us back to where we have been. This was a gentle reminder for me that self-care has slowly been taking a back seat to work + productivity and that in the end, it is just not worth it.
The road to healing + wellness has no end. It is filled with bumps and lessons to be learned, there is no such thing as perfection. The magic lies in picking ourselves up and beginning again.
