    Feeling Burnt Out? How To Choose Rest Over Murder 😉

    Guess what: I threw a temper tantrum yesterday. It was small and semi-concealed and involved me talking to 2 supervisors, HR, and eventually my district manager (sister of a family friend) for a day off. Result: I got ½ a day to rest. Instead of 10 hours Sunday, I work 4. 🙃 At first I thought I was being a spoiled brat, and was super hard on myself for not being able to keep up with my work load, but then I realized I’m exhausted because I’m frustrated and I do a lot.

    Self Love vs. Happiness 🌸

    Self-Love (n): regard for one’s own well-being and happiness. Self-love is not happiness. Let me say that one more time, self love is not happiness. I found myself in a bit of a funk recently and for the life of me, I could not figure out what was wrong.
