This day started off with bad insomnia at 2:30am. I couldn’t fall back to sleep, and I felt a headache brewing. I was THIS CLOSE to calling out of work, at least for the morning, but I got up and went to work anyway and I’m so glad I did, because,
*Prettiest sunrise in months while walking my dog and then driving to work
*My coworker @saristacarswela FINALLY brought me handmade soap!!
*Today we had a soup and salad potluck at work, and there was so much amazing Fall food!!
*I had several appointments with patients that all went really well, and I was proud of their progress.
I would have missed all of these meaningful moments if I stayed in bed. I’m all about self-care and rest when you need it, though there’s also value in showing up, pressing on, and giving it what you can, even if it’s not 100%.
With that being said, time for a shower and sleep 😴
