Chattiness ahead

I am envious of people who work and still have the energy/motivation to go out and do things after work and on the weekends*. I come home from work and I have a headache, my body often aches and I’m just tired. I have a job where I sit all day and in theory I should not feel exhausted, but I do. I know I need to get out and be active either before or after work. I did that for a while. Then work got incredibly busy and the first thing that gets put at the bottom of the list is me. I am crappy at taking care of myself in the midst of everything else. So now I have been back in my rut of being at the computer with the TV on in the background, snacking mindlessly**and not doing much of anything for myself. I need to kick myself in the butt.

*I have lived here for almost 4-1/2 years and I don’t have much to show for it in terms of a social life and it’s my fault. Tumblr is my social life.

**I don’t even want to focus on the kind of eating I’m doing. I just want to get myself to be active again and stick to it, even when I get busy with work. Why can’t I/won’t I take care of myself when I need it? I piss myself off.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
