Conscientious about going to work is something I have always been. It would be a lie to say I never faked illness for a day off, but such instances have been very, very rare and always necessary. Even then there was usually a good bit of guilt. Life has been particularly busy for me the last two weeks. The accumulation of work and lots of concerts, shows and time with friends wore me down from not sleeping enough. So this morning I slept in several hours later than usual after leaving word last night at the office my arrival would be around lunch time. Self-care is not something I used to be good at, but am improving. Resting when I really needed it was absolutely the best thing I could do for myself and for my employer. When I arrive at my job today I will be rested and ready to get done what I need to. I’m proud of myself for taking care of me!
