/ naps \

I didn’t get the job. I’m disappointed, but I don’t take it personal. I know the person they hired and she’s honestly a better fit for the job. Im sincerely happy for her and I’m trusting the right path for me will come along.

Truthfully though, I’m tired. Navigating life right now is just a little bit overwhelming and physically and emotionally exhausting. Growing up, I was groomed to think acknowledgement of things being hard was a weakness. You shut up, and you power through. Now, creating space for me to acknowledge things are both okay, and not okay, is super important. It’s a balanced and healthy approach to dealing with chronic illness and what that means for me in all areas of my life, not just my career.

In peak moments of exacerbation and anxiety, I find a nap helps hit the reset button for me. It doesn’t solve everything (or anything really). But it takes me out of the “I can’t do this” cycle and allows for me to take a deep breath…

and put one foot in front of the other.
