not just proud… SUPER proud!
even though i’m absolutely exhausted right now & reclining in my la-z-boy with my laptop while writing this.
i not only made it through my return to work this week without freaking out or melting down but i also had the best time ever!
like in a ‘haven’t been this happy in months’ kind of way.
and i think i know why.
first – i went into it in a high vibe, positive frame of mind.
i thought about all the things i love about my job & i made the effort to really enjoy the time i spent with my friends at work.
i also treated myself really well – buying my favourite coffee, eating lots of fresh fruit & veg & wearing my prettiest dresses that made me feel really good.
second – i leaned on the people i have in my life.
a lot of my loved ones are the same people who helped me out of that dark, horrible situation that was my marriage.
the ones who supported, listened & loved me back then, are the same ones by my side now.
plus, a ton of new friends i’ve made though the afternoons with harley community offered some good advice & kind words that i absolutely appreciate more than i can probably ever say!
and finally – i thought about the brave doctors, nurses & healthcare professionals, frontline & essential workers who leave their homes every day to keep the world turning – & that made me feel brave too.
although i do miss spending all day with the dog & of course my coffee stained sweatpants…
