Too Tired to Think

makeadifferencememe 1

I’m so tired tonight I don’t think I have a topic to write about. Days like this are big barriers to being creative. I have the open heart, but my brain is just mush today. Every part of me hurts in one way or another. My head hurts, my teeth and gums hurt, my neck and back hurt, and my knee and ankle hurt. It’s as if my body has all of a sudden decided to turn on me. It’s falling apart piece by piece. I still have my mind, but it’s so scattered some days that I worry about losing my ability to concentrate on projects. I get up every morning hoping for a little more energy than the day before. Sometimes it will last for a little while, but I can never really hope for or count on a whole day that is clear enough to create.

I have to take it when it comes. And quite honestly, it’s just not gonna happen tonight. Maybe that’s okay. I hope it gives you permission to take a break when you need to take it.
