As we get deeper and deeper into the summer, my body, mind, and spirit are craving more and more rest.

Things at work have been sort of hectic. And thankfully, it has nothing to do with me personally as it does with the administration of my job and the people who utilize my job. But even though I’m not in it, I’m being affected by it, and every day, there is just more news to be shared.

What kills me is that some of these people think this drama is FUN…like they have nothing better to do. Meanwhile, those of us who work here already have enough to deal with, and all of the added complaining and plotting on the outside sort of just bogs us down.

This weekend, I’ll be headed back home to Tybee Island, GA, so I can *finally* get my “new-to-me” car! I bought it back in late April/early May, but then I got COVID, the end of the school year happened, a friend of mine and some family came into town, all in which to say that I’ve been so busy that I haven’t gotten the chance to get my car. Not to mention Pa (my stepdad) wanted to work on the AC for me, and also make sure it would run smoothly!

But even though it’ll be a 5.5 hour drive, and I’ll only get to spend a day-and-a-half there, I’m hoping just being back on the island will give me a sense of peace, of rest. It’s been 3 years since I stepped foot on Tybee, and I know I should have gone back long before now. But maybe being gone for so long and coming back will restore me, in a sense.

I’ll have to write about my adventures next week when I’m back in town! I already have my youngest sister asking if I can take her somewhere on Saturday since my parents can’t ๐Ÿ˜‚

Seeing that it’s been so long since I’ve been home is making me realize that I need to take off of work more often. I’m always so busy “hustling and grinding,” and then I end up wearing myself out, when I should take some time every now and then for me. It doesn’t mean I always have to travel somewhere, but at least give myself a mental health day or two, and not worry so much about losing the money.

When I start working for myself, I’ll be sure to take more rest days, and to schedule things so I’m not so overwhelmed!

How do you make sure that you’re not overwhelmed, overworked, and overstressed with the job that you have? Do you tend to travel to a different place to find rest, or are you able to find rest right where you are?
