I performed with fever yesterday! With inner fever, and activistic energy and quite literally with fever that accompanies a virus or cold I catched. So today is time out with ginger tea an feelgood activities.
Never forget yourself. Be it in political activism, bei it in personal caring and/or community work, be it in the arts, or even in kind of all of that at once - take care for yourself. You're doing a great, necessary and important job. But we tend to self exploit, and overwork quite often. Taking yourself seriously is not an act of selfishness, it enables you, to continue your work. You are your only self. So being gentle with yourself is super important.
It's ok to take a day or two off. It's ok to say no, if you want to spare energy for another opportunity. It's ok not to fight every single fight. It is ok to get paid for your work (activism is work and it's fine to treat it as such), especially because marginalized perspectives are most often underpaid, if paid at all.
Quality time for yourself can also mean an advanced quality of your work.
