The last few weeks have seen me having a lot of good days which I desperately needed.
It all started with a trip to Cancun, Mexico with my college roommate. It was a great way to take a break from social media and work. I mean, I did manage to get a horrible sunburn because we were drinking margaritas in the ocean, but that's beside the point.
It's hard to not rest and want to soak up as much sun as possible when you're around this instead of frozen tundra Wisconsin life.
It was nice to get a sunburn honestly. It was a good reminder that pain usually comes to people after they do something.
Katy and I also just really needed to spend time together in the wake of all the political ick going on.
Despite having a sunburn when I got back, I really felt like I had a fire lit under my ass. For the first time in a while, I had really just taken a legit break and felt ready to attack things.
A week later, T and I got to go see one of my favorite bands - Boyz II Men!
I've been listening to them ever since I was little and I have always enjoyed their music. Seeing them in person was amazing.
It also got me thinking about other things from my youth that I really enjoyed... like albondigas soup... which all connects back to Mexico, funny enough. I talk about it in my latest piece over on Medium.
Hey, and I lost like five pounds within a month!
It's not that things are all going right. My inflammation levels are high. My fatigue is being a butt. I have a million things I want to do and not always enough energy to do them.
Still, things feel better. Rest is incredibly important, especially in times of resistance. Make sure you're taking care of you.
