self-care/self-aware, status report

The awakening…

Lately I have felt as though I have fallen off of life’s road and into a ditch somewhere. (Or perhaps I’ve felt it for a while, but am just now realizing it…?) There are things that God wants me to see, that I have ignored. There are things that I have written and wanted to post, but haven’t bothered…

I’m in a bit of a funk, and have come to recognize that I need to take care of my offline real self.

I’ve been thinking about this all along, but things really came to a head over the last few days…Last Friday, I went back to my hometown for a mini staycation. By the time Monday came, I did not want to come back to Toronto(!).

Not permanently. But just…For a while.

I was feeling under the weather, but there was something more at play.

As with most people women(?) I notice that I have an unfortunate habit. I love helping others. Yet I often leave myself undone.

That cannot continue. I’m getting older (33). There’s only one of me in this world. I ought to treat myself better. God wants me to give myself the respect I deserve, and…Heaven knows, I’ve been overdue for some self-love.


Until next time…

    I know how you feel Claire. We all end up in that place sometimes. I think, though, that one of the best ways to wake yourself up is to freak yourself out. Scare yourself a little bit. Pick something you’ve wanted to do, something you haven’t been able to bring yourself to do, and then…execute. The exhilaration is what makes you present and connects you best with the world and people around you. Good luck!
