Current Mantra / Affirmation
[Tweet “My mental health is my number one priority.“]
I have been on the go lately and haven’t had much time for myself to reset and recuperate. With everything going on, I know that after this last event in July, no one will have access to my ass for a very long time. I am very good at making time for others, but terrible at doing the same for me. And it showed last week, when I spent most of my evenings in bed as soon as I got in from work. Friday morning, out of frustration, I booked myself a solo trip … to be alone and unreachable. Drastic I know, and my anxiety is on high now that I can’t back out of it. But it was needed, and I will do it and be okay.
It will be forced Yetti time.

Eating / Drinking: Nothing, this is the problem.
Watching / Listening to: Watching “Black Love.”

6/9- whoop whoop
Working on a new 5-year plan is definitely something I need to tackle soon. Reading your post really made me think about how mine is outdated since I’ve achieved all that was there except one thing. (my master’s >,<) I'm planning to incorporate that into my self-care routine this weekend, perhaps on tomorrow. Because honey TODAY, today is all for me to sit around and do absolutely nothing. I make SURE to have at least 1-2 of "Nothing Days" a month. LOL!
