My head hurts. I think I need food, water, And sleep.
As I thought about just now how my head hurts, I realized that I can express that fact/sentiment in five languages, and without even having to think about it.
My head hurts. (Duh)
Me duele en la cabeza.
J’ai mal à la tête.
Ich habe Kopfschmerzen.
Rad, huh? My life is super blessed. Thank you, God. Now, I’ll have a bit more water, and then sleep!
Tonight, I take a page from the book of Bruno Mars.
Tonight I don’t feel like doing anything – I just want to lie in my bed. I don’t feel like picking up my phone, and writing anything on my web blog. Tonight, I don’t feel like doing anything… Nothing but sleep.
Goodnight all. Hopefully, I will see you next when we all are refreshed and feeling wonderful and fulfilled.
Sometimes, I just have to accept that my day’s productivity will consist of mental and physical rejuvenation (e.g. resting around all day), as opposed to standard ideas of ‘being productive’. There can be a hundred things I want to accomplish on a day off of work. However, if that day comes at the end of a long stream of busy, filled, tiring work days, then I might just need to postpone all 100 tasks. Otherwise, I won’t even make it through the day.
I want a lifestyle where I balance out these tasks and this rest in a beautiful, perfect combination of activity and rejuvenation. I think there is true value in having a day of rest in every week. The religions really got that one right. No joke, yo.
