I am stressed and I have to many obligations. Rather, to many people believe I am all about them! 

As more and more becomes expected of me I am running into a serious problem, time and energy. 

A therapist once told me I have to take “me” time. But “me” time was this mysterious, elusive idea that didn’t have a meaning in my life. I had no idea what it was. However, I am quickly realizing that whatever “me” time is…I need it.

If you have been reading my posts for any length of time you know that my LGBT Peer Support Group has been Priority #1 for me for about two years. 

The fight to get it done without outside help was taxing, but worth it. Now my precious group has its first meeting on December 1st, and the closer that day comes the more I feel I am lacking necessary thinking time.

So today I left work early and I am going to take one day of my weekend off this time. Wednesday is my day where I am going to spend time cleaning out my mind and preparing for the road ahead of me. 

This is life. I am so inspired by some of the books I am reading that my energy levels and determination spike and I maintain them until I am required to go elsewhere and spend time, like work. 

A piece of advice, which I have heard for years, take time for you and recover properly before you crash. 

I think its time to do just that.

With Love
