This isn’t a day post (I will just resume tomorrow), but rather a quick update. You may have noticed that I nixed all mention of the new “21 day” feature from the blog. I did some serious thinking today and realized that endeavour was more likely to add to my stress than reduce it. This last year and a half (working at my school) has been really hard for me, and as angry with myself as I am that I am currently so out of shape, I’m trying to cut myself some slack. A and I laugh all the time that this experience has been a blessing because we will be so grateful for the little things (a non-hostile job, having more than one room in our house, not having 8 hours of work when we get home from work, etc, etc, etc) when it is over. However, when I’m honest with myself I know that this experience is taking a toll on me physically and emotionally. I read a really touching post by Jenna today about her “yoga development” and it really hit home for me. As much as I want to make the gym a priority (new years and all :>) I’m going to make sure I don’t beat myself up.
I’ve got to get back to work, but hopefully I shall return in the morning much more relaxed. What do you do to help yourself just chill?
