Today I took a day. My 5:34 am alarm went off & at that moment, I just couldn't do it. My body, mind, and heart just felt heavier. And for those of you that also teach, you know that when you're not at 100%, everything is just harder. Therefore, in order to ease some of my anxiety. I took a day for me.
I tried to fill today with all of the things that I love most or that I'm trying to love more.
1. sleeping in
2. morning yoga & prayer
3. chamomile and lavender hot tea
4. simple errands
5. finishing a painting (below!)
6. espresso + milk
7. apple butter on toast
8. job applications...
10. & grocery shopping
Today was tempting. I wish that I could be on my own clock each day. To wake up when I'm rested, to eat when I'm hungry, and to not feel a sense of anxious urgency every minute. All of which I'm hoping will come once I figure out this whole teaching thing or find peace with how daily life works.
And now - the planning for tomorrow begins.
