WO: Weekly Obsessions

I know this month is meant to be all about gratitude, and I’m fully aware of my privilege to even acknowledge that.

But.

This month has been a kick in the ass if ever I’ve had one.

Aside from a crushing amount of work in preparation for the holidays, my personal life also seems to have taken a swan dive south. And even as I type this, I stretched out on our couch only to knock over an entire cup of soda on our (thankfully washable) rug.

Sigh. I’m finding some comfort in books, friends, food, family, and soda wine … you know, the ingredients to any well-balanced life.

In the meantime, I find myself trying to get just 10 minutes of alone time where I’m not glued to a screen or answering someone’s questions. Again, I know I’m in a place of privilege that these are my biggest problems right now, but they’re problems nonetheless.

What do you do when you need to get away mentally — or do you just push through it? All advice is welcome! Namaste, friends.
