When I got up Monday morning for work I realized that this would be the first full week I’ve worked in two weeks. My feet dragged a little bit that morning. But then I woke up and it was Friday and I had no idea what happened to this week.I never even got a chance to write a Love Thursday this week because by the time I finished the last post it was practically already next week (not really, but close). Where did this week go? I remember the events of only one day clearly. The rest of the days are smashed together in blurred images. That sure makes it hard to remember what I was thankful for this week.
Despite the scatter brain and the squirrels, I have managed to get on my yoga mat every day this week. I haven’t skipped a day on the treadmill. I’ve eaten (reasonably) well. I have done healthy things for my body which is pretty spectacular considering the crazy brain of my week. This is something I can be thankful for. This is something I can remember to be thankful for. Usually what happens during weeks like this one is my routine gets wrecked. I don’t get on the mat. The daily walk is hit or miss. Food is crackers and avocados. But apparently I had enough of my wits about me this week to at least take care of myself physically. Go me! Actually sticking with my usual routine has helped calm some of that mind chatter. Another thing that has helped quiet things is disabling my dating profile. I’ve been off and on with the online dating thing and every time I disable my profile, I feel a weight lift from my shoulders. That’s a pretty telling sign that I shouldn’t be doing it. I’m thankful that weight is no longer there to cart around.
I’ve got a lot to be thankful for in this moment. The key is to actually stay put in this moment for a bit. Hope everyone has a great weekend, but a truly Thankful Friday.
