My favourite thing today was choosing to put myself first. I had a social commitment this evening, one that’s been in the calendar for weeks. And one I was quite looking forward to. And then this morning, I got an abdominal migraine. It’s the first abdominal migraine I’ve had in probably a year and a half or so. And it was incredibly unpleasant. I came home from work because of it. I was up and down all day because of it. And by the end of the day, I probably could have dooed myself up on mess and gone to my social function, but I was exhausted. And all I wanted, quite desperately, was to stay home alone. I have been so ridiculously busy the last little while, mostly with kids’ commitments, but also with my own stuff, that I feel like I haven’t had a single evening off in months. So I made the choice to stay home and take care of myself tonight instead. I watched a movie. I made healthy food and ate what I was able to keep down. I cleaned off my phone, deleting old text strings, backing up photos, and deleting photos from my phone. I need to do some organizing on my computer too, but I didn’t get that far tonight. But a night at home alone was exactly what I needed. (And I’m still sad I missed my social thing, especially since one person is moving away. But sometimes you have to make the hard call to take care of yourself first.)
