Entry #17 – Taking Care of Yourself

Hi everyone, Kohaku here; I hope everybody had a great week.

With respect to writing, I got more done this week than I expected, so I’m glad. Even so, life is still really busy, and I’m stressed and tired. Things will sort themselves out soon. Until then, all I can do is keep moving forward.

I’ve been trying to do a lot recently. I’m working hard, learning a lot of new things, and chasing after new experiences and opportunities. And while that’s all well and good, I think it’s important for us to remember that we don’t have to do everything. Sometimes, some days, it’s important to let yourself sleep in, relax, make some hot tea and curl up by the window with a good book. Treat yourself to a nice warm bath, maybe an afternoon nap. Stay home. Spend time with yourself for once.

Sometimes, because of the way our society works, we can’t afford to do this. I think that’s a problem – but there are lots of ways to argue it. I just wish society at large would accept and prioritize the importance of the health of individuals, which greatly depends on being able to have relaxing days like these.

I’m just incredibly tired. I need a break, but don’t we all? We each have to find our own ways to recharge and keep on going. This week, think about what you do to take care of yourself, and do it. Your health and happiness depend on it, right? Do your best to make time for that; just do whatever you can, and keep walking forward.

Take care~

KT
