I am one of those people that keeps going and going and going until I simply can't go anymore. And that's what happened over the past few weeks. I've been teaching all day and coming home to work on my Mary Kay business all night. I would work on and off until Andrew came home from work at 11pm and then I went to bed. I kept doing that while adding in facials and parties for Mary Kay last week and found that I just couldn't keep up anymore.
I had been getting sick and then on Thursday I thought I could go to work on cold medicine and make it through school and then prom that night and by 10am I knew that that wouldn't work. I ended up going home sick from work on Thursday and then taking another sick day on Friday. I spent most of Saturday sick and finally started to feel better today.
I have always done this to myself and I know that I probably will do it again, but this should serve as a reminder to me and others who do this that it's okay to take a break if you need one!
