When I got up this morning it was still dark. Something wasn’t quite right, so I trundled off to urgent care to get checked. Long story short? Today turned into a #self-care fest of epic proportions. Not the fun kind, the “put on your big girl panties and get this stuff taken care of” kind.

Did I plan to spend my day like this? Hell no.  Absolutely not. And weird symptoms have a funny way of kicking me right square in the procrastinator. I’m fine… just more than a little bit finished with shuttling from place to place and to watch people check my insurance card.

I’m taking a break to post this before returning to our regularly scheduled self-care programming. Yoga class is calling.

I had to use some ninja-level self-care skills to write and publish  The Inner Critic Advantage: Making Peace With the Noise in Your Head. It’s a little book full of big ideas about how — and why — you can learn to love “that voice.”   The Inner Critic Advantage is now available on Amazon.
