Next week is our second EDS International Scientific Symposium in Ghent and I am thinking back to May 2016 when we launched @ehlers.danlos
at the Symposium in New York City. We have come such a long way since then, we have invested nearly $1.5million dollars into research, hosted learning conferences all over the world, built amazing collaborations and the EDS professional world is growing. We have such exciting plans for global outreach and education in 2018, more funding for research, more global conferences, more more more!!! Join our dazzle and feel hopeful and positive that things are changing. I am so excited to share our 2019 plans with you all soon!!! Our strength begins with hope 💫
Today has been about hot tea, taking it slow, and giving myself permission.
For the first time in a long time, I don't feel guilty about it. I know, I know - it doesn't SEEM like that much of a big deal, does it.
But it is and I'm not alone in feeling that way.
Spend some time each day just checking in with yourself to make sure how you are. If you need a nap, a run, a mug of hot tea, a spoonful of peanut butter, a zombie movie marathon, or some time snuggling a pup (yours, preferably, or the owner of the dog you stalk to a park or apartment building may not be quite so understanding) - take that time for you! 🧘♀️🚵♀️🏌️♀️🎣🕺💃🚶♀️🛀🧖♀️🐕
And when you do, consider it the prescription you needed for the day and leave the guilt behind. 😉😊☺
