This week has been all about small steps and progress. It’s also been about accepting limitations and working with them instead of fighting against them. That sounds quite deep for a Friday morning doesn’t it.
I found myself out of action for most of Monday and all of Tuesday much to my frustration. There are points in the month when extreme fatigue takes over and I’m forced to listen to my body and rest. As a productive person who thrives on being busy this isn’t easy to accept. After feeling sorry for myself I had a good chat with Chris. I came to realise that if I work with my limitations instead of trying to fight them I will recover a lot quicker. This is definite progress for me.
Progress has also been made in Jake’s bedroom this week. Chris has been working really hard, coming straight in from work and cracking on with the decorating. Usually the house being upside down while we decorate drives me nuts. This time however I’ve worked with it and it’s been so much easier.
I’ve been breaking the jobs that need doing around the house into smaller tasks. This has made it so much easier to actually get things done. In the past I had a really bad habit of trying to do too many things at once which resulted in burn-out. This year I’m determined to keep taking small steps, because even the smallest in the right direction is still progress.
