The last three weeks have been emotionally and finally physically difficult. The transition back to work has been a challenging one. Not getting everything done I had planned this summer, getting hit with the reality of the current COVID-19 surge, learning I have more work to do on my spiritual path, and sitting at a computer 8-hours a day again have all ganged up on me at once. Now, after several days of really not feeling well, I’m doing better. I’m still a little shaky from not eating, so I decided to take a sick day and stay home from work.
Now to regroup. I’m taking care of me and my environment today. Yes, that means house cleaning that I haven’t really done in 3 weeks. I’m watering the lawn, cleaning my patio, making more progress on unfinished projects, and preparing food to eat for the week.
I’ve learned that when I don’t plan and prepare meals, it’s far too easy to revert back to bad habits. Those poor choices are what made me sick to begin with. Now, to make better choices.
