I just spent 4 days traveling and attending a conference in Louisiana but now I can feel myself shutting down. I just want to hide. I was socially overloaded but then had to dive right back into work. I just want to crawl into bed and sleep. I want to slither under a big rock and wait a few days for the weather to change. I really don't want to be working or talking to anyone.

Do you think it would be rude for me to shut my door and hide all day?
Okay - how to fix this? Focus on the positives and give myself positive self talk. Easier said than done but I have to do this. I am going to close my door and listen to one of my guided meditation apps for a few minutes to hopefully recharge my brain.
What I really need is some OUTDOOR MEDITATION TIME aka a SNAKE HIKE. I got to go on a Snake Hike while in Louisiana and it helped get me through the weekend. Here is the snake I found while hiking:

Since I can't go on a Snake Hike (the weather outside is frightful!), I am going to think about snakes after I meditate. I am going to think about how I can move forward with making snakes my only job. I learned this past weekend that the Center for Snake Conservation brand is really positive in the herp world. Lots of people told me they loved what I am doing. The brand is a good one - time to GROW beyond being an amateur and become the professional I know that I am.
