Taking a breath...

Photo Credit

My heart is heavy, my mind is full of worries.  I'm crying too much, sleeping too little, and feeling very disconnected.  My back is a wreck, and I've been fighting a cold for the past two weeks.  I need to take care of myself... mind and body.  Why do we feel like failures when we can't do it all?  Like if we stop for a second, to take a deep breath, we are giving up.  I'm human, I know, and I'm in dire need of a break... so I'm taking one.

I will return Valentine's day, with a clearer mind and a healthier body.

Oh, my friend...

I'm not sure what the circumstances are here, but this sounds familiar to me. You are not a failure for taking a break and no one can do it all. You need to take care of yourself first! I've been there before, and it's not a fun place. If you need to talk, I'm here, okay?

Thanks so much... it's just been a lot of things. Work, home, health... I could go on and on. I just need a break. I always feel like I need to do everything right now, and I just couldn't anymore. I need to seriously look at my schedule and make some changes. Thanks for the support!!

I spoke to a graphic designer today about getting some help, I'm a graphic designer ... my family ask WHY ... would I hire a GD of all things. And the answer is because I can not do it all ... i've tried & it does not work.
Jess ... your day job is life ... don't forget to ask for help ... when you need it.

Jess, sending hugs your way! You are an amazing woman and deserve lots of R & R! Take all the time that you need. Life it too short!

Thanks ladies!! I needed a long-distance hug... I needed a vacation.

Oh my. I'm looking at this older post, and I have to quickly get off and look at your later ones and see that you're okay! I hope you are. I think your blog is always so uplifting. I'm sorry you were in a funk.
