I took a mental health day yesterday and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. We had a series of cold wet rainy days in which everything I accomplished happened by ignoring what was going on around me. I helped a young man meet some excellent role models. I helped an older man get off his butt and get to the gym. And I said goodbye to a man who was leaving the mental hospital. These were all good things. However I felt I had neglected myself during my 44 hours of work.
I am not certain what the issue is with my hair. It just seems to grow faster than anyone else’s. I looked at myself Saturday and I said I can do better than this so I called in. By the day’s end I had some new clothes, a new look and a much better feeling about myself. To top it off, I had a great workout on Sunday. Every once in a while you need to take inventory and I definitely did not want to go to my office birthday party looking like I did last week.
