Transparent moment: By the end of this week I had nothing else to give. I was so tired. Between work and other things that I have going on in my personal life I’ve neglected to really take care of myself. I’m often telling my friends and loved ones to make sure that they’re taking care of themselves, but I’m not even practicing what I preach. • It’s okay to take a break. Self-care is important. Listen to your body. Taking time to recharge is very necessary.
