|Last week I had a couple minor meltdowns where I was pretty much useless for entire days at a time.
That’s bad news because my income depends on me being able to show up and do the work, whether I feel like it or not. I imagine you might be in a similar boat, oh reader mine…
Knowing that I needed to get my psychological S*** together, I did some digging into what happened and realized something. It’s a lesson I seem to need to learn over and over again, but since I’m learning it for the 34840139865th time I figured I’d share in case you need a reminder too:
Take care of yourself.
Exercise. Shower. Sit outside in the sunshine if you can. Create. Read. Do things that nourish and replenish your soul.
Yes, even as the world suffers. Now more than ever.
You need to be your best self right now… so do I. So don’t put yourself on the back burner.

That’s a tricky one because we’re all aware of how much the world has changed in the span of just a few short weeks. We’re living in a totally new normal (and that normal may be gone in another couple weeks too, for all we know). Short of learning how to read minds and tell the future so you’ll know when is the exact right time to ask in order to maximize getting paid… here’s what I recommend:
