The kitties love this unseasonable October sunshine as much as we do!
Well this week was kind of a wash around here. Phooey! I was running around so much last week, both literally, in my running class, and figuratively, being a busy little bee! And somewhere in the between the two I hurt my back really bad.
So bad in fact, that I have barely been able to sit at my desk and type this week so I've been doing really minimal stuff as fast as I can, and going back to lay down. The guilt I felt for not writing here wasn't even strong enough to pull me through the pain- I just had to rest. And so I did. I actually gave myself a couple sick days this week and just laid around!
And wouldn't you know it? I'm feeling SO much better today, the pain is almost entirely gone and my energy is back to normal- so I learned yet another little lesson about how to be a good boss to myself.
Alison from Craftcast recently interviewed me for her podcast (take a listen to it! we talk all about ditching the cubicle, blogging, fear, life, work, and more!) and she asked if I'm a good boss to myself? I told her "I'm getting better at it", but I think it's something we have to learn and it takes lots of time.
Self-employment seems like the dream when you're stuck in a cubicle, but it can be really difficult to be your own boss, to stay motivated and get stuff done and treat yourself with kindness when things go wrong. So... I think this whole experience may have actually sparked a new series here about just that- how to be a good boss to yourself! I've been laying down and journaling about it, so much more to come soon!
For now, I'm off to catch up on some housework and some sunshine! Hope you have a great weekend and it should be back to normal around here next week!
