A quick personal reflection on self-care June 27, 2008

Posted by Raul in Uncategorized.

I got home last night at around 9pm, exhausted after having spent time running around like a headless hummingbird, and even though I sat in front of my computer, I was simply unable to produce anything. I wanted to write up everything I had for the weekend, and not a single word came out. My brain was completely shutdown.

Even hummingbirds need to rest, and I am not the exception. These past few weeks, I’ve been talking to my friends, both on and off the blogosphere, about the fact that I have been pushing myself to extremes and sleeping very little. That’s not a sustainable position (not in the environmental sustainability sense, for the record, but in the sense of ‘sustaining’ – long term).

I need to take care of myself, and I plan to do so in the next little while. Please take no offense if I don’t respond quickly to emails, messages, phone calls, etc. I just want some time off. As I mentioned before, there will be some time-stamped posts in case anyone really cares to read, but for the most part, it is my absolute hope that I won’t be online this weekend. Enjoy yours!

Have a great weekend Raul!
Relax as that is what weekends should be. I plan on doing that myself!
And if you need anything you know you can count on your friends and bloggers out there help you out.

Take it easy, Raul. I’m on a kind of forced vacation myself. πŸ™‚

@ Gus and @ Rob – Thanks! πŸ™‚ I appreciate the support … this Web 2.0 is addictive 😦

Luckily I took the afternoon off and walked around Robson, did some shopping, etc.

Have a nice weekend!

Self care nutures our soul, keeps us balanced, and gives us a much needed break so we can start back where we left off.

I can make you some yummy aromatherapy bath salts . They work wonders.

Or perhaps I can entice you to come to yoga with me….it really works wonders in the self care department.

@ Phaedra – Your mere presence nurtures my soul. Although I would seriously consider yoga too πŸ™‚
