Remembering, Now and Then, To Stop

You know sometimes it’s really important to say fuck it, I’m gonna wrap myself in a blanket, eat duck gyozas and read. I’m still having to remind myself of that, still have to give myself permission. Even then I know I’m going to panic about the work/writing I should be doing.

But not today. Today is blanket, gyozas and reading.

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who has trouble just stopping for a moment. In fact, I know I’m not. It shouldn’t be something we have to bargain with ourselves for, it should just be a thing we occasionally do. So people, be good to yourselves, allow yourselves a ‘do absolutely nothing’ day and every once in a while, relax, read or do something you enjoy that you never have time to do because normally you’re just so busy. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself in the long run.

Now, where did I put that plum sauce?
