fandom, self-care

Stepping back a bit

A few weeks ago, T blocked my calendar. For a whole weekend, I wasn’t allowed to schedule anything.

It was a much-needed wake-up call, even if he claims he did it as a silly gesture.

I do a lot of things:

It’s been a lot to handle, and all but two of those things are unpaid or worse – I pay! And there also isn’t the whole self-care thing on there… I’ve been slacking, and it definitely shows.

I really enjoy everything that I do. There are times, though, where things get a little too hectic. Coming back from New York, I worsened my fibro flare. I tried to keep the same pace I had earlier in the year, and my body couldn’t do it anymore.

Thanks, Facebook!

It’s funny, though. I realize I’m a nerd, but hear me out: Spock’s quote from the Wrath of Kahn echoes in my head as I make these trade-offs: “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few,” and Kirk adds, “Or the one.”
But my body says…
Thanks, Buzzfeed!
So I’m going to slow down a little bit and focus more on the quality of what I do.
