This week has been a rough one. I woke up this morning realizing what it was doing for my health. The starts of the head cold that I thought I had kicked last week was back today. In hindsight, it has been fighting to come back for the last few days. I was exhausted – I needed a day of rest so that I don’t get sick like others at work.
So I checked my calendar and called in sick.
Then went back to bed and slept for almost 4 more hours.
This week is always my crazy week anyway. I have the art show tonight which means a crazy long day of hanging on Sunday. Prep all week with more promotion and all of the details – the cards, the bios, etc. Then final touches for the show tonight – followed by the opening.
Choosing to take this day for my mental health was the right thing.
Not having a crazy day followed by a rush to get to the show and then the show was the right thing.
I’m glad I listened to myself instead of tried talking myself out of it.
