With all the stress I’ve been under I found myself dangerously close to a mental break down.
I refuse to let that happen. I work part time and sometimes my schedule lines up where I have close to a week between shifts.
This week is one of those times and it could not have come at a better time. I just need time to myself, time to re-charge, time to re-group.
I need time to process and deal with everything that’s been going on the past few months.
Change is never easy, but it’s an important part of life. I need to give this new chapter in my life a fair chance.
And in order to give it a fair chance I need to give ME a fair chance and right now that means putting me as number 1 priority.

This too shall pass and I’ll be a better person for it.

  1. Beautiful Katie Butterfly, you are so right.
    A friend told me this week “ If you cannot help yourself Rita, you won’t be able to help anyone else!”
    So be good to yourself, heal, meditate, ask, and pray;
    be the very best “Katie” you can be. Love who you are.

  2. It’s been more than a week since this post and I hope you found the time to take care of you. You’re absolutely right about putting yourself first. I’m only just learning that lesson now. Sending you strength and courage to listen to yourself and to take care of yourself when you need to.
