There’s a saying, “You can’t pour from an empty cup”. I understand that completely now. As I tried to pour my time, energy, and emotional support into everyone else except myself. Boy was that I bad idea that I paid for. As a result, I took a much-needed break to recharge my mind and my spirit. I feel so much better now and although I’m not 100 percent, my battery is defiantly recharged. I wear so many hats in my day to day life and at times it’s very overwhelming. I didn’t realize I was running on E until the gas light came on and my body stopped working. Now I’m learning to be more aware of the amount of energy I expend and monitoring how I take care of myself. Both mentally and physically. This year for me is about healing and growth in all areas of my life. Uncovering old wounds, working on becoming a better version of myself, and being happy. Unapologetically happy.
For the past few weeks I have started taking care of me. How do I do that you may ask? Well for starters I have been taking myself out on dates. I mean real dates. I go to lunch, plan trips to local museums, and of course shopping. Well more so browsing, but it’s still quiet relaxing. On Facebook, someone posted an article about a mom who checks into a hotel 3 times a year by herself just to recharge. I will most certainly be doing that as well. Can you say “Spa Day” 3 times fast? I just wanted to stop in and say that I’m back and as happy as ever. I have even been doing some vlogging on my YouTube channels. Yes, channels meaning more than one. I have two channels and one dedicated to vlogging called ChimereNicoleTV. I have fallen in love with vlogging as it’s a great way to connect with you all by sharing my day to day activities. It’s really fun as well, even when people are starring at you talking to yourself in public. It’s hilarious lol. If you aren’t subscribed to my both of my YouTube channels make sure you click here and here to keep up with all the shenanigans.
