I’m still rolling on the good feelings this weekend! Heck yes.
We went to a friend’s cabin for his 30th birthday weekend and it was really fun. We only knew him and his girlfriend though, so it was a lot of meeting new people. I’m an extrovert, but by Saturday evening I was worn out. We hadn’t gotten much sleep the night before, and I wasn’t drinking. Now, I don’t mind not drinking, but being around a bunch of people you don’t know who are all getting hammered is a bit draining.
Instead of forcing myself through it, I listened to myself. I excused myself and went down and took a nap for about an hour. Normally, I might have been worried that I would be a party pooper, especially since no one knew me, and that I should just hang out. But I didn’t. I took my nap, didn’t worry about what people would think, and felt a LOT better when I got up! Then, I was able to hang out and have fun the rest of the night!
That was a good lesson. I took care of myself, even when I was unsure if I should, and ended up feeling better and having a good time overall.
We got back early this morning and I’m wiped out. Zach and I got a bunch of groceries and did meal prep, and now we’re watching Harry Potter until it’s late enough to go to bed!
