Time off

I hit my head.  Ok, I know I should rest.  And I was convinced not to exercise. But take time off from work?  What?  I "can't".  I "shouldn't".  Why not?  Some sense of obligation?   To my clients?   To some over developed work ethic?  Maybe an unwillingness to prioritize myself?  Or maybe I am just so tough that I can push through anything?  Is there an emoticon for eye rolling? ;)

Have I mentioned I am a very slow learner?  Very belatedly I have decided to take time off from work and rest my noggin. A very wise woman said to me last week that I should take care of myself...nobody is going to do it for me.  So simple. Yet funny that it took me so many weeks to give myself permission to take care of my health in this way.

My friend Meredith and I are keeping a list of all the lessons being learned from this slip and fall event!

I have a feeling we are going to generate a long list by the end of both of our recoveries... but a very good one!
