ElizaMarie 🌈 Journal: I was journaling recently (it felt really good) 🌈 Organization / Adulting: Got my school stuff organized and ready to go. I did start reading (the first assignments are due on Wednesday!) ESH!!! 🌈 1y

So the past week-ish:
#SelfCareIsNotSelfish

💜Date: 2 different date nights with the hubby, some nice drinks, and of course a day date with sushi!!! 💜Gifts: I got myself a new graphic novel and a Green Bay Flag :) 💜Plants: My friend moved (not far) but left me a plant baby for my office, meet “Haddie“💜

ElizaMarie 💜Just for me: I got a happy meal today after having my hair trimmed (and I got bangs!) and also bought some super spice sunflower seeds 💜Important Adult Stuff: got the MRI, results weren't great so... I have a f/u appointment tomorrow to discuss treatment options, I feel scared about it all but it's important to keep doing this!💜 1y

This past week: #SelfCareIsNotSelfish

💐Date: Joshua and I went bowling together :) 💐Explore Local: we went to a new cafe, had an amazing cupcake, went to the “fish ladder“ and saw the petroglyphs in town! Also in the whole walk, we saw a bunch of beautiful flowers. 💐Guilty Pleasure: Watched several of the Sharknado movies :) 💐

ElizaMarie 💐Self Care: I had a huge amazing experience in the Float Spa!!! I will definitely do this again and again and again! 💐Girls Night: I went out with a couple of my coworkers, drank, caught up, all of that! (not pictured)💐Adulting: I got the spacers/retainers for my piercings to prepare for the MRI, I have this Friday and I sent an email to a therapist to set up an appointment (also not pictured) 💐 1y

So far: So even though I didn't post a bingo this month, I really wanted to make sure I incorporate self-care into my day-to-day. #SelfCareBingo
#SelfCareIsNotSelfish

Adult/Plan: Starting using my new 2022 planner (it's a school one so it started in August) but.. it helps me feel more organized/centered and all that ⬇ ⬇

ElizaMarie 🌿 New Place/Celebrate accomplishments: I sent to a Scottish pub and had a flight (like super Scottish with accents and everything!) 🌿 Bought myself a gift: Went to the Gallery Walk and bought myself a new nose ring (made in India) 🌿 Guilty Pleasure: Treated myself to some Hot Cheetos with squeezed lime :) yum!!! 🌿

I am just being really burned out lately. School is taking a lot more out of me than I had anticipated. That and I have some emotional/personal/health things going on that have thrown me for a loop (I am “okay“ in the broad sense of things)...

So I know more self-care is really what would be best but... I feel I might retreat and If I make a bingo ... I might just feel “bad“ that I didn't try to complete it

#SelfCareBingo #SelfCareIsNotSelfish

DaveGreen7777 Sorry your burnt out right now. 😔 Hope you feel much better soon! 1y
ShyBookOwl I know the feeling. Maybe one of your self care bingo squares can be "take it easy on yourself" and u can save it until the very end, so even if u don't "finish," u can x that one off by not beating yourself up about it ? 1y
ShyBookOwl (Also note that I don't exactly know what the self care bingo rules are, but I hope the spirit of my above msg helps even if it wouldn't technically work lol) 1y

alisiakae Saying no to making a bingo sheet for august is fulfilling part of your July bingo sheet. I can relate to how you are felling right now 💞, hang in there! 1y
alisiakae @ShyBookOwl @ElizaMarie is the one that creates the monthly bingo sheets, what I think she means is that she needs to take a break from hosting the monthly #selfcarebingo challenge. ☺️ 1y
ShyBookOwl @4thhouseontheleft ohhhh! Well then by all means, yes! Take that break. 1y
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes you just need some time to get things sorted!! Hopefully you are able to find some balance soon. ❤ 1y
OriginalCyn620 By all means, take a break if you feel that‘s best. You gotta take care of you first and foremost! Hope the break is just what you need to recharge and regroup! 💕 1y
ElizaMarie @DaveGreen7777 Thanks. I am just in a place that I am not going to plan for anything and just try to work on making sure I have moments that make me happy. 1y
ElizaMarie @ShyBookOwl -- Awe thanks! I just couldn't think of anything that I could fill a bingo on. But I do plan on posting things that make me happy every week or so... To see if that is helpful in showing gratitude! 1y
ElizaMarie @ShyBookOwl Ha! There are no real rules. I had been posting a “self-care“ bingo every month in hopes to help others (and myself) engage in self-care. Sometimes I do better when there is a little “competition“ element in it or some “structure“ so that's why I had created it. I didn't find it in me today to “create“ one but that doesn't mean I don't plan on engaging in self-care. 1y
ElizaMarie @4thhouseontheleft YES!! Exactly! I had one that said, “say no!“. I am doing good overall, just so much on my plate right now. 1y
ElizaMarie @4thhouseontheleft @ShyBookOwl exactly what I meant :) 1y
ElizaMarie @TheAromaofBooks I just have so much “planning“ to do this month that I am opting out of anything extra in the planning stages. Also going to take a break from #BookSpinBingo -- I think I had initially mentioned I was participating but.. I am just gonna focus on finishing some of the books I have going right now. (ha I say that but you know I am going to mood read) 1y
ElizaMarie @OriginalCyn620 Thanks! I do plan on engaging in self-care... just no Bingo this month. Thank you for your kindness :) 1y
TheAromaofBooks That's totally fair!! Frequently, making all the decisions is way harder than actually implementing the plan!! Good luck!! 1y
ElizaMarie @TheAromaofBooks Ha, yes! My brain is shot for decisions 1y

ElizaMarie @OriginalCyn620 and @Cheshirecat913 - I have always wanted a hammock, I moved from south Texas and rarely (heat-wise) felt comfortable to lay around outside. Here (VT) it's perfect! If anything is a little chilly but I have my space heater JuJuB who insists on laying with me. 1y
ElizaMarie @wanderinglynn - Awe thank you! He thinks he is such a tiny little lapdog (edited) 1y

jb72 Such a cute pic of you and your dog! 1y
OriginalCyn620 Awesome! I‘m jealous...I want an iMac so bad! Very glad for you, though! 😉 1y
ElizaMarie @jb72 Awe... Thank you. He was super needy yesterday, getting between me and my laptop while I was working on school work so i figured I should snap a picture of this little cuddle bug! (edited) 1y

ElizaMarie @OriginalCyn620 So I used the excuse of going back to school to get an iMac. I got a pink one and upgraded the memory and storage space. Unfortunately, it wasn't available for pick up at the store, so I have to wait almost a month to get it... But I am super excited! 1y
