I called in sick … And heard Hestia talking …

So what did I do today ? For the first time in a very very long time I actually called in sick and did not go to my “feed the children job”…. Why ?

Well because I AM sick. I have a runny nose, painful throat and a a temperature…

I’ve been feeling sick for 3 days now …

A few years back, I’d have pushed and taken enough paracetamol to keep me going and just plainly NOT LISTENED to my body. Today ?

I collected my courage and messaged that I would not be going…

While feeling slightly guilty nonetheless …

They messaged back that it made sense, that I should take care of myself …

So I did.

Work in progress here… I’m learning…

I took the paracetamol. Felt better. Thought about going anyway …

Thought again.

And decided to do differently.

“If you always do what you’ve always done,

you will always get what you’ve always got”

Said … Oh I don’t remember … Many clever guys I guess …

So I spent half my day in bed watching Christmas movies while drinking hot tea with lemon and honey (and blowing my nose…) and half sleeping … Bliss …

And I meditated … And I heard the message.

Loud and clear.

HESTIA, From Goddesses of the New Light, Oracle Cards by Pamela Matthews

From Hestia, Greek Goddess of the Hearth (amongst other things).

Self-care is an act of Self-love. 

And I do need more of that.

Defo.

Work in progress again …

And the other half of the day ?

Well since I had nothing planned … It felt like free time.

So I caught up on an online business course I bought that I was procrastinating about…

Guess what ?

I had so much fun (yes, I know, you light think I’m crazy but I love educating myself …)

Plus the course is amazing and is going to be sooo helpful in the next weeks as I go launching my online biz ..… I even had an epiphany (a story for some other time)

So on the whole ?

A beautiful day … Too bad I wasn’t listening to my body earlier … even earlier this week … I might have heard the need for rest … On the other hand, the message from the Universe and from my dear friend Goddess Hestia about self-care and self-love might not have been that clear to me…

Main thing I took out of this day ?

I can change the way I think and act. Then it changes the way I feel.

If I change… Everything changes.

And you know… If I can … you can !

Try it !
