My new mantra this month: IT’S OK TO TAKE A BREAK – promise 😽

Let me just recap you on the past two months (OMG has it really been that long 😭). I was working in a job, I wasn’t exactly happy with. The job itself was incredibly stressful and my health was taking a huge hit because of it. I suffer from severe anxiety, diagnosed OCD and this job was NOT helping. I honestly couldn’t keep up with it. I was finally offered to return to my previous team, but I would have to work BOTH jobs for the time being until they could hire a replacement. I am also the “party planner” of our group, I host TM events in my spare time (two to three events per week) for roughly about 45 people.

To sum up: Three full time jobs at once. I’m a multitasker, but I ain’t that good.

At this point – my anxiety hit its peak. I was hospitalized and diagnosed with GERD (severe acid reflux) due to the amount of stress I was putting myself through. Oh and did I mention, I also almost lost my gallbladder along with it?

It took almost two months for my full transition. I trained my replacement, I moved into my new office and I’m finally starting to breathe. My stomach is still giving me some problems, but I truly feel like I’m starting to heal.

As you probably know, at this point, I keep a tight household schedule. My house is always incredibly clean, dog is walked, I exercise daily, I write daily and interact with my readers. I work my normally job 8AM-5PM, I run a “FUN- TIVITIES” group at my work and I keep up with my blog/social media followers. It’s a lot. LIKE A LOT.

After juggling for two months. I realized one very important thing: It’s OK to take a break. It’s ok to take time for myself, to let the chores go or be late sending out an article. It’s OK! The world will not end if I’m running late to a meeting, forgot to pick up glitter for my fun-tivities projects or if I didn’t bake something for a coworker.

Here’s to finally getting back on track and letting myself breathe 💪🏻💪🏻

Sometimes we get so caught up with our daily lives and work that we forget to take time to just enjoy the simple things such as some well needed R&R.
