MOOD. Wake me up when it’s February already. ⚠️Warning: this is a slightly long read.
This was my mood yesterday and pretty much the days before that, hence my absence online.
NYE and New Year’s Day were great, but it turned a little bit different immediately after.
There was covid positive in the family.
I struggled with insomnia, for weeks.
Felt sick and low.
Felt a sense of anxiety and panic due to another wave of the pandemic. No thanks to Omicron.
Even until last night, I didn’t get to have a quality sleep…
As soon as I woke up before 6 this morning, I chose to fully wake up and stand up.
I woke up with my (supportive) husband, kept the veggies I ordered from our neighbor yesterday.
I cooked us some omelets for breakfast.
And Brian made us my requested banana-kiwi smoothie.
Then when Bryce woke up, he called us for some morning snuggles in bed.
Made him his favorite chocOats (chocolate drink with oats) for breakfast.
Danced to 12 songs as my workout which lasted for about an hour. Woohoo!
Then Bryce and I watched Encanto, which made me ugly cry, it was so good!
And ate lunch with my boys! I’m feeling a bit more of myself, and I am grateful.
I am taking my time to heal and recover.
All this is to say that we have the power to break the bad pattern, and change the course of our day, our weeks, and even our lives!
But in the meantime, take as much break as you need —to heal, to recover, to reassess. Whatever it is that you need to do to feel a little bit more of yourself.
In case you needed to hear this, YOU can do this TOO!
