Blinking red

Headache seems to be plaguing me most of the evening. I wonder if that was due to the drilling that have been going on nearby my office throughout the day. I noticed that I am feeling more easily drained this entire week. My body seems to be blinking red, telling me to rest. Deciding to trust my body, I applied for a day of annual leave next week. It is maybe not as long as I would like, but it is an attempt to balance rest and responsibilities.

Meantime, here's sharing one of my favourite quotes. I hope it inspires:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous --
Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people
Won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us: it is in everyone,
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.

- Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love (New York: Harper Collins, 1992)

You seriously need a holiday oceanskies79. A holiday doing nothing but lazing by the beach.

I am hoping to feel recharged.

eastcoastlife: Thank you for offering your company. I think I am just too drained that I can't even think of where to go. :P
But next weekend is the International Museum Day.
