I want to start off by apologizing for my absence last week. Between fibro flares, emotional upsets, and working nearly around the clock I knew I would forget to get my weekly message to you one of these weeks this summer.
The last three weeks have been challenging for me to say the least. Living with a chronic illness and running a business is no joke and sometimes I literally feel like I cannot do it all.
Don’t get me wrong. I love this work. I live for this work but chronic pain and fatigue makes the daily battle feel like an all consuming war and some weeks 95% of my focus has to be devoted to the absolute essentials and nothing more.
With all this said I am happy to be feeling much better than I have in many weeks. I have so much to share but in keeping with my self care mantra; I’ll save some of the most recent highlights for next week.
Be sure to keep up with me and 540WMain on the official Facebook page and my personal facebook page. Social media is our lifeblood and we love seeing all your comments, likes, loves and shares.
Before I forget…
