Is it okay to do nothing?
I’ve been so tired lately. I don’t know if the fatigue is my fibromyalgia flaring up, or if I’m just not getting enough sleep. I’ve been nearly falling asleep midday and at strange times, and today, although I had grand plans to do a lot of sewing while watching the Super Bowl, I have done nothing.
I suppose that’s not entirely true that I’ve done nothing.
- I started some pork loin in the slow cooker – another recipe I made up with what I had on hand.
- I cleaned out my closet tossing all the clothes that no longer fit and prepped them to be donated to charity.
- I took photos of some of my really nice Anne Klein jackets that I’m going to try to sell for a few dollars on Craigslist. I still need to actually post them.
- I did the dishes. LOL.
I had plans to go for a long walk, to finish a project for my brother, to sew a fleece jacket for myself, to do some cleaning. I just don’t have the energy. I have the desire, but I’m really tired. I fell asleep for a bit and really could probably sleep all day. Is that okay?
I feel guilty if I’m not doing something – anything – during the day. I feel like I’m wasting the day away.
Does anyone else do that?
Anyway, I’m giving myself permission to do nothing today. No cleaning, no sewing, no laundry, no work. Nada. We’ll see if I can stick to that.
