Today’s blog challenge word is ‘Priorities’
It feels as though my life is ruled by my health – or rather lack of good health. This is even more noticeable during the summer months when my hay-fever kicks into a higher gear.
There’ve also been far too many very hot days here for a country that has yet to embrace air conditioning in domestic homes, so I’m too hot indoors (plus my nap schedule is screwed) and I’m too miserable due to my allergies if i sit outside.
This rather has me resenting my body, something i tend to do too much of as it is, add to that the periodic depression that’s sneaking back and self care is getting somewhat neglected. We’re socialised into thinking that self care/doing things *just* for ourselves is selfish, that we should be constantly thinking about others rather than ourselves. But if we do that and neglect ourself – what do we have to give? At the moment i feel like i have nothing, my energy is so low. So i need to remember the words of wisdom from Marigold and the Sustainably Creative lifestyle that Michael is working at and sharing.
