"Today I feel good.
Today I took time for myself.
Today I listened to what I needed.
Today I looked after myself and my space.
Today I'm I thought about me." -TIFFANY S.M. Teoh
This morning, I asked for sick leave from work. I wasn't sure if I had the right to ask for it. I didn't have a fever, I wasn't bed-ridden, and I definitely didn't have any injuries. But I did feel low, I did feel tired, I did feel unmotivated. I thought over and over again last night if I deserved to ask for sick leave. And this morning as I kept snoozing my alarm and drawing the covers over my head to hide the light of day, I decided to just tell them the truth. I told work that I've been feeling weak and wanted to have a day off. They replied saying they hope I feel better. I made a dress today. I exfoliated and nurtured my skin. I cleaned our living space. I ate just enough food and drank plenty of water. Today I felt fulfilled. And that's better than being happy.
I hope you remember to give yourself days like this too. ❤
