I haven’t been very active recently for multiple reasons, some good and some not so good. The good, is that I have a full set of orders that I am working on at the moment for multiple customers ranging from Birthday cards to calendars to Christmas and holiday cards. That would be the perfect amount for my plate but as many of you may or may not know I volunteer at my former high school in their drama department and show season has started. Meaning, even later nights trying to do three of my own designs while overseeing others while our other designers are out on vacation. I’m also trying to make time for my boyfriend who is about to learn the meaning of a mean Emma, sadly. I love my boyfriend dearly but we only see each other on the weekends and with the show my Saturday’s are booked solid until November. The hardest thing about all of this is going to remember to take time for myself so I don’t make myself sick. Sadly, I’ve already been sick once this September but that was more a medication error than anything. Any suggestions you can give for ways that I can help care for myself during really stressful times that’d be great.
I’ve started meditating again, which is kind of helping me but it’s going to take some getting used to as well as getting back to working out after not working out for two weeks due to being sick. I’m also trying to get into bed earlier to try and help reset my body back to it’s normal rhythm. I’m trying to stay positive and keep my head held high but some days I just have really bad, down days and I can’t pull myself out of it.
