Last night, I was depleted of energy.
Followed my morning routine to the letter.
Jam-packed day at work, chock full of knowledge.
Came home and did some more things that needed done/
Eventually, my body gave in and said it couldn’t do any more.
Another harder part of my journey of radical acceptance is the fact that I need to take care of myself no matter what it takes or where it is the popular thing to do.
Even if the night is young and I am depleted, I have to recognize the fact that I need to just man up, be an adult and not fall into the trap of missing doses anymore.
Because of past experiences, I often viewed going to bed early as a form of punishment and not having autonomy to make choices as a person.
This reared my independence to the point where I finally understanding the need to take care myself regardless of what others think.
I thought of this picture I took on one of the longest days of the year at one of my wagon trains camps where we shared the field with overhead power lines.
As much as I want to be an Energizer bunny and keep on going as my brain can do if I allow it, doing just that will only make my brain worse.
Besides, I know I will feel better and that I like to start my days early, plus today I took some time to indulge in some binge watching of YouTube to recharge even more, now I can be prepared to last a little longer until I am ready to turn in tonight and start the cycle tomorrow.
Take care of YOU, don’t be a crowd seeker.
Know that your energy doesn’t last forever.
If you don’t take care of yourself, you will crash hard.
Take care and stay safe out there.
