I ran away to McDonald’s, y’all.
If you heard on my podcast episode about the whole story, let me go into a little bit more detail.
It was a normal day at the Li-Cain household. I was working on some intense deadlines and was running low on sleep. My son also happened to be teething and wasn’t the most pleasant to be around.
When my husband came home, the entire house was turned upside down. My hair was tattered and tears streaming down my face. I asked if I could leave, drove around for a good 30 minutes, stopped at McDonald’s, got a hot chocolate (and a Big Mac meal) and scarfed it down while crying again.
Well guess what? I ended up missing deadlines and paying some bills late. It actually took me a few weeks to get back on track.
If I had implemented some self care practices from the get-go, none of this would have happened.
