This has been a difficult day.
Today I gave and gave, without holding enough back for myself. Sometimes these days of serving others are tiring yet satisfying; other times these days are just tiring.
I am emotionally and physically drained.
A little alone time and trying to read an inspirational book is what I’m doing to refill my bucket. Unfortunately, I still feel down and depleted. It is a gray day, both outside my windows and within my own soul.
I know there are things I could do to try to feel more optimistic. I could make a gratitude list and … lots of other things, I’m sure.
But you know what? I’m taking the lazy way out right now. I’m going to eat some dessert, put my little ones to bed, take a hot bath and just space out. And then go to bed.
Sometimes sleep is the best medicine.
What do you do when you’re feeling down and depleted?
