Yeah well I did it. I called in sick today. Thought about it all night while I was fighting a headache and woke up exhausted but the headache is going away haha.
I went back and forth deciding on whether or not I should call in sick. Thinking of what my future may hold if I do take a sick day. Calculating the days I already took off. Feeling that nervousness in my stomach and then…..a meme popped up on my Facebook feed. Shit you not……
I say hell yeah. So I did. My kids are home from Florida and might be going back again soon. The sun is shining and I just felt like I needed a day off mentally and physically.
Life is for living right? That includes making a living, spending time with the people you love, enjoying every little and big moment. Take the day off.
Not only that but don’t be afraid to do what it is that your gut is telling you to do. What’s the worse that could happen? Seriously, will you be beheaded? Stop the madness.
Worrying gets you no where. Worrying is a useless way to use brain energy. It depletes you and robs you of precious time.
Enjoy your day please I’m begging you. Tomorrow is not promised.
I think it’s so important to have a good work-life balance. Work is important, but it’s not the primary focus of life. In my opinion, taking time off will ultimately help you be more productive when you go back to work. I’m glad you were able to take that much needed sick day!
