Yesterday was going swimmingly until I received a work-related email that was deflating, to say the least.
I can’t really go into detail (and I know vague-blogging is HIGHLY annoying, and for that I am sorry!) but just trying to move on and act constructively rather than reactively. Some work things are in flux (more on that at some point but probably not for a while) and I have to admit I look forward to a day when things might feel less roller-coaster-y in my professional life.
That said, I know I get to choose my reaction to things, including whether I take things personally or not. So I will think calm and constructive thoughts, and try not to ruminate, as it accomplishes nothing.
I will go for a run.
I will wake A up early to work on long division (not her fave, she needs to practice).
As it’s another clinical day, I will focus on each patient (and finish my notes — I am happy to say I did really well with this yesterday!)
I will (if time) spend my lunch break brainstorming future podcast topics (ideas welcome!).
I will try to have a nice evening with the kids after work.
On the upside, I AM READING AGAIN! I started a preview of Dial A for Aunties PLUS I am back into In A New York Minute and on a new non-fiction pick (Anxiety Sisters — for a future pod ep). To those of you who recommended an e-reader — I do have a kindle paperwhite! I just happen to actively dislike it (lol). I did however get Dial A‘s preview via Libby and I like how that app makes the background black while in night mode on the phone! So maybe Libby/kindle on my phone is my answer for “lying in kids’ rooms” for now. It definitely beats scrolling. Though I am also going to order one of the lights recommended!
Well, happy Tuesday. Onward + upward, I suppose.
