The thing about being under the weather is that everything on your "to do" list never gets done.
My house is a mess.
I have spent literally the bare minimum amount of time on my blog this week.
All I do is sit on the couch after an exhausting day at the studio.
Grits has been my buddy.
It's mentally hard to be sick! And I've really realized how much I take my health for granted! I have a to do list a mile long and usually I chip away at it at a regular pace. But this week, it became stagnant. And I really struggle with that.
I'm not good at rest. I like to do. I like to go go go and take on new responsibilities and projects. But I learned a very valuable lesson this week--rest is good. And there are going to be chapters in my life that require rest. And that's okay. Be prepared for those.
So, I've added a few more things to my "to do" list now that I'm feeling better. First, draft some back up posts for weeks like this. I usually spend a little bit of time on the weekend and a lot of time on Mondays and Tuesdays when I'm not in the studio to draft my posts for the week ahead. But when the weekend and my blog work days are taken from me? I got nothin'.
Secondly, I'd love to embrace rest better--and not look at it as a hinderance.
I'm filming a new tutorial this weekend for Monday (glad to be getting back to doing those!) and hoping to have fresh, new content all next week! Thanks for bearing with me during this dud week here on the blog.
