Adulthood na scam!
Honestly, I think I was too eager about growing up, I wish I could go back to being a little girl with no responsibilities; sleep, eat, watch tv, repeat. Somebody wake me up from my dream!
Hi guys, welcome back to my blog, remember my last blog post where I gave an update about moving to the UK, getting married and starting my Masters degree? Today makes it exactly 6 months and 6 days that we landed in Manchester airport and I must confess it has been the busiest yet most fulfilling 6 months of my life. Being a full time Masters degree student, working alongside studying and being a wifeyy.. I absolutely love the whole experience and I am so proud of how far I have come but the truth is, it gets really overwhelming sometimes and if care is not taken, one can easily get burnt out.
Do you know what I did 2 weeks ago? I took a break! Went on a two-day trip to Leicester and spent time with my bestie from uni, I was on Easter holiday in school and so I booked sometime off work as well. It was so refreshing; visiting a new city and catching up with my best friend, this made me realise that sometimes all we need is a break.
Over the last few years, I’ve come to realise that adulthood is full of jumping from one responsibility to the other, as you’re completing a task, you’re literally thinking of the next thing. So if you’re not careful, you’d experience burn out (a state of physical and emotional exhaustion) and end up feeling sad and depressed day in day out. It’s important for you to set out time to take a break from work and everything in between, visit friends and family, try out new things and do what truly makes you happy.
Life is short, take a break darling, you deserve it!
