Note to Self

Everyday, I'm exhausted. So much to do, so little time I have. Isn't this typical what we say? I know I feel this and say it a lot lately.

A couple of days ago, I was looking at our pictures files to develop. There was one picture that was stuck in my head. It was a picture of Ethan and I, taken on January 2012 when we played at the backyard, building a snowman. There I looked at my little man who was so cute and happy. I looked happy too. But there was more. I looked at how pale my face was, how tired my eyes looked like, and how so no fresh I was overall.

I realized that I have not been taking good care of myself for the past few years. Often times, I forgot how to relax and take the time to really just rest . . . until I was sick a couple of weeks ago. Nothing major. It's just a cold but the cold hasn't really gone until now and it's not a typical of me being sick. I'm usually the healthiest in the family but I guess it finally takes a toll on me. People started to mention about how tired I look and it's just like a confirmation, isn't it?

It is not too late, I tell myself. Changes have to be made. My husband and I have been talking about changes that we need to make in life and we are working through it. Maybe first, I need to try not to work on the weekend. I've seen a few Etsy shops lately that are closed on weekends and holidays. Maybe I should do that, eh?

Do you like the print above? I just found this Going Place 2 shop today and really love this shop. Check it out when you get a chance!

  1. Using a day completely doesn't mean to work all day, right? We postpone that plan for later :D but we've heard thats just normal for a start up's first years...

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Nauli :-)
      I have to start to not working all day or worrying about the house chores, perhaps keeping an hour a day less at my craft room to just enjoy reading my craft magazine. I haven't done this for a long time. Lol.
