365 Letters to Myself

January 16th - What a mess...

The type of day you just want to go back to bed, and try again tomorrow. It’s a Monday! A rainy winter one, which is NO good for a Minnesota January, puddles will soon be ice rinks. Our poorly shoveled driveway is already treacherous. Today is a National holiday Monday, so no school and no work for most the household, meaning no quiet. Not very easy to generate any focus – losing 3 hours of sleep and attempting to make them up didn’t help. The little bit of momentum I started to roll with, diverted to the UR for a day-off ice skating injury. Some days – just are messy.

But as with any mess – I do want to clean it up and find what is the silver lining. The injury appears to be manageable. I’ve been waiting for the house to receive some new paint – which the husband did do! Heard from a couple of clients I haven’t been in touch with for a while – so very grateful they still reach out. Last chapter of a good book read. Heading to happy hour with a friend. It is still a wonderful life.

Can’t appreciate all that is right, without experiencing what (I like to say) are the challenges.

Hmmm, clean up needed…day 176!

Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
