It’s important to record the difficult days as well as the comfortable ones, to reflect on what matters, what we can control, and who we love having around us.
Today was a difficult day. I woke up and was downhearted by an email, the snow and a lack of direction to my day. I overreacted to the people I love and didn’t breathe in between the difficult parts of the day.
But, now, as I write this blog, I’m in a better mindset. A bad day isn’t a bad life. Give yourself a breather and a well-earned pat on the back. You’re living through a God damn pandemic. Wow. That’s pretty intense. I wonder what percentage of people, who’ve lived on earth since time began, have lived through a world-wide pandemic. I bet that percentage isn’t very high.
In true Becky style, a panicked mind led to a deep-clean of the kitchen, a few mopey hours, and some good food (thank you Luke).
Strangely, I’ve managed to do a few important things today. I applied for a few jobs, cleaned the kitchen and had a meeting this evening about the social media for the Girlguides. So, all in all, not a wasted day after all.
Here’s to tomorrow, and the rest of the week. Hopefully, better times ahead.
