On What You Need

Sometimes, just sometimes, it's okay to let things go, to forget about everything that you're supposed to be doing, and to give yourself a break. Sometimes you have those days where, for whatever reason, you just can't work. And, as I've mentioned before, I'm trying to be kinder to myself this year. Which means that, when this happens, instead of getting frustrated, I'm going to try to give myself a break. Maybe a day off from pushing myself. Yesterday was one of those days.

It's always the way by the last day of term, I find. That both your body and your brain is too tired, too fed up, and too ready for the holidays to work properly. So, yesterday, during my double free, I went out with my friend Lish and we sat in Pret, over a cup of tea, and talked about everything. There's nothing better than catch ups with your girlfriends and talking through it all to reassure you that we're all in this together, which makes everything that much better.

In the evening, in the same mindset, I went for dinners and cocktails at Las Iguanas with the girls. It was the perfect girls' night. We even went for oreo waffles after. Cocktails were drunk, food was eaten; I cannot recommend Las Iguanas highly enough. But that wasn't what made last night so fun. It was the laughing, and the talking, and just being with such wonderful people, that reminded me that it's okay to have these days. To leave things, and come back to them in a better mindset, is okay. And, most of all, to be kind to yourself is more than okay; it's the best thing you can do.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone, I hope, whatever you're doing, you have a wonderful day! xo
