Don't Apologize for Self-Care

Monday, September 26, 2016

It's been a long time since I've posted something.
See, I had ideas to write down, but then I became sick. I know I'm really sick when I don't feel like crafting. That's kind of a joke, but in all seriousness, I didn't do anything for a solid three or four days. That included charging my cell phone or really checking any of my online stuff. To be honest, it kind of felt good to not have my cell phone on me. The only instance in which I felt badly was when some dear friends messaged me to see if I was okay. I'm very grateful to have friends that notice that something is up when I'm not in my normal contact with them.

Although I was pretty sick, (I had some stomach flu or something related to that), I felt a guilt that I wasn't on Facebook commenting or doing what I would normally do. I actually had to reason with myself that I didn't need to since I was so sick. I even thought about apologizing because I wasn't posting like I normally would. Then I kept thinking about how I needed to take care of myself. I could barely hold down water, why should I be so hard on myself to finish up a few posts? Don't get me wrong, I do feel bad for the people that I let down, but I'm appreciative that they understood my situation.

This is a pretty short post, but all in all, take care of yourself. Do whatever you need to do to put your self-care first. I know I've said it before, and I'll say it again, you can't take care of others until you take care of yourself.

Simply Yours,
