Today I did not want to get out of bed.
I had food poisoning over the weekend, and still recovering this morning I was exhausted, nauseous and depressed.
Words from my friends ran through my head, from @saxofong
“the days you don’t want to show up are the most important days to show up” and @mlm_unicorn_queen
“if you are going to be sad, you might as well be sad in the practice room”.
I wanted to cancel everything I had today, but instead I hobbled into the lab and did as much work as I could, ate as much food as my stomach could handle, and got ready to teach lessons all day. As I reached a point in the day where I was feeling good and energized, I felt so grateful for not laying in bed all day. Show up friends, especially when you don’t want to!
