The past few days have been hard for me. I woke up yesterday with a reaction on my face. It was painful and I had no idea how to fix it. I spent most of the day applying a cold flannel to my face. As a result, it calmed down a little. Luckily I had today off work. My plan was to blog all day. Yet that obviously didn’t happen. In fact, I spent most of the day in bed. With Netflix on. Being grumpy. Not only is it causing me pain, it’s really affecting my mental health. Self-esteem has never been my strong point. Having burn marks certainly hasn’t helped. While I could complain about it, this post isn’t about that. Perhaps if I was a beauty blogger, I’d talk about it. But I’m definitely not one.
And after spending all day in bed, I decided to get up and do something I could do. I can’t magically remove burn marks. They will take their time to heal. I cannot rush that. What I can do, however, is play with stationery and practice self-care. Self-care comes in many forms. I cannot tell you what it means to you – no one except yourself can. There’s plenty of non-stationery related ideas, such as having a bath or going for a walk. I’ve also listed some stationery related ideas in a previous post – my stationery self-care challenge.
