*Hangs up boxing gloves*
What a year.
I'll be honest, it's been a roller coaster year. It's not all been about 'That Instagram Life'. At some points it's sucked balls. BIG time. Other times, it's been the greatest.
I've never taken the Christmas period off before. I've never actually taken the whole week off. I've even answered emails on Christmas and Boxing day. This year will be different. This year I get to take a rest.
I know next year is going to be full of wonderful stuff. From new clients already signed up, shows, collaborations, a course for my clients, I finish one of my Diplomas, there will be "an event" that will get announced in a few months, and so much love and laughter. Hey, who knows, I may even get round to getting married, who knows!
Right now though, I'm pooped. I am done. I'm running on empty and I've only let myself get to this stage because I know I'm in for some serious R&R over the next week or so. I refuse to start a new year, a new decade, on empty. It won't do me, my clients or my loved one any good. Thinking about all the exciting stuff about to happen is making me feel tired. This shouldn't be the case.
If you're feeling like this, then you need to really start to look after you. You need to put yourself first and you need to take a break. You'll be no good to anyone broken. Or worse...
Sounds dramatic, right? Well it's not. I've ended up in hospital, fighting for my life (proper Resuss/ICU situations), due to stress and over exhaustion. It's not worth it. There is not one person/client on this planet that's worth that.
I have grown so much as a person over the last 6 months and thats because I've ridden my life of f*cks to give and I've allowed myself to be me. I've binned a load of people in my life and I could not be happier. Genuinely.
So, now is the time to take stock, put your feet up, look after you and take a rest and look at what really matters. I'll be hanging my boxing gloves up for the rest of the year and I'll be coming out swinging in January. You ready to fight the good fight?
Until next time,
PS - Happy Christmas and all that xxx
