Taking Care of Number One

Girl, last week was insane for me.  I have to say, it was probably the most stressful week I've had in a really long time.  I was so incredibly busy that my self-care routine went completely out the window.  My main focus last week was getting enough sleep so I could get through my hectic schedule.  My self-care was non-existent and I found myself in a funk by the end of the week.

Lesson learned.

The Importance of Self-Care

It's been quite a week over here!  I've been a tad stressed to say the least.  Starting a new job, meeting new people, and adjusting to a new city is hard.  My body started shutting down mid-week because I was letting the stress get to me and my self-care was out the window.  Self-care is something I tend to forget about when I have a bunch of other things on my plate, so this was a good reminder for me to make it a priority again.

Living In The Flow

The only quote that can describe my week last week is: "Well, that didn't go as planned."  A series of minor events happened last week made me reevaluate my long-term goals and actions on how to get there.  The Universe is funny that way, you think you have it all figured out, and then BAM.  The Universe sends you something and you have nothing left to do but step back and let go.
