Last week I had a couple of days when I didn’t feel exactly well. I was lacking energy and motivation, simply wanted to stay in bed all day long. A couple of years ago I would have started to get stressed out about it, pushing myself to work more than I could handle, wouldn’t have accepted that – for some reason – my body needed a little rest. This time I didn’t. I accepted that I couldn’t be as productive as I wanted to be. Of course I pushed myself to work – because taking a couple of days off was not possible – , but I didn’t force to do more than I could handle. I took I took it easy, stayed at home as much as I could, had quality time with myself and spent some good moments on the couch. I filled up my batteries. Because over the years I learned a lesson:
Everyone has ups and downs in a life. We go through breakups, fights, stress due to work, social pressure, grief, self-doubt and so much more. I’ve been through that. And I managed. I am still here, happy and full of life, because it always gets better. Sometimes within in a day, sometimes two, a week, a month or even a year. It is not always easy. For sure not. But one day you will wake up, feeling the energy in your body and smile that is starting to spread over your face. Trust in it. It always gets better.
