Weekly Reflection 2017 – 19

How I shone this week: This week Jake was out of the country so I was alone with the kids. Most of the week, this ended up meaning that I worked in the evenings and tried to get ahead of my plans a bit. I got some work done but of course not as much as I’d hoped. I went to work a bunch, I went to Nathaniel’s school, I had coaching clients, I went to a party for Nathaniel and his classmates and then had a 1-1 with a friend and then went to a social event with parents from David’s school. I did math with both of the kids. I showed up. I tried. I also yelled and wanted to give up and felt hopeless at different times this week. But I got up and kept going and sometimes that’s the best shining I can do. 

Things I wanted to get Done: 

  • Work: I did a lot of documentation but have a bunch more, of course. I did some meetings and scheduled some more. I also booked Seattle, woo hoo!
  • Vacation: I made no plans for memorial day. But there’s an event at David’s school and a playdate for Nathaniel, do those count?
  • Summer: So I didn’t book a camp for David but we came to an understanding so we will implement that, so now I only have to book one for him and I still need a plan for Nathaniel for a week.
  • Personal: Exercise sucked, I suck. I did do art though. But I also didn’t do OLW, though I might tonight.
  • Family: I picked up N’s book and we did go hiking. I called the eye doctor but it was closed so I’ll try tomorrow and we took some photos but just on my phone.

Looks like 50-50 this week.

I celebrate: Jake coming back tomorrow!

I am grateful for: all of the bits of my life. my mom. my dad. i am so lucky.

I nourished myself by: going hiking this week.

Reflecting on my worries: i didn’t write enough down but I am going to keep at it. I can make this happen. i am still pretty exhausted but honestly i need to drink water and eat well and sleep a bit more and then we can see. i still haven’t exercised. there might not be solutions but i won’t know until i try. camps will be ok. i did some art! I did some. not all but baby steps.

I let go of: giving myself a hard time. I forgive and i move on.

Core Desire Check-in (bold, mindful, nourish, love):

  • bold: i signed up for more bold and scary things at work.
  • mindful: i’ve been mindful of the fact that I work a lot more lately. I will give myself grace when I need it.
  • nourish: so so this week. 
  • love: i did so well. and then i failed so spectacularly. but i am trying again.

What made me laugh this week: my friend Kelly and I laughed a lot. I am so grateful for a new friend.

What I tolerated this week: a lot of social events that were hard for me. but i showed up!

My mood this week was: one day at a time.
I forgive myself for: not getting the exercise in gear.
What I love right now: the long, sunny days.

Here’s to a wonderful week twenty!
