A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to February...
So a funny thing happened earlier this year, I'd closed all my shops for Christmas and reopened them in the New Year but I just couldn't get going. Over Christmas I had been hit with a virus that left me passed out on a friends sofa on Christmas day with a temperature, a hot water bottle and some fluffy slippers (Thanks Eva). I'm not going to lie Christmas was BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!! To this day I have presents that were opened in a daze that I have no idea where they came from, who lovingly wrapped them or if they belong to me or Mr Felt (we share pretty much everything anyway so no biggie!) The tree came down early and I put off reopening my shops as long as possible.
I'm failing at life... I can't even holiday properly! (My crazy brain wailed!)
And then I woke up today and thought "I know what I am doing wrong!" I realised I was trying to fix something by using new methods and neglecting the things I knew worked so I got out the giant pad and sharpies and hashed out a plan for the next month.
And I thought about it... I do feel better, but I'm not ok... and pressuring myself to get better isn't going to help. So I'm not going to... the next month will be taken at a different pace. I'll be looking after myself and maybe the business will just have to wait... or maybe not... these things have a way of working themselves out when you aren't looking.
Lets see what happens eh?
Any advice on beating burnout I'd appreciate it... I'll try anything!
(Oh and check out the only birds I managed to make in January! These are Eclectus Parrots, Male and Female)
