Weekly Reflection 2019 – 13

Magic I Saw this Week: Hmm this week there was the magic of sunshine and flowers. The magic of snuggles. The magic of kindness from my kids. The magic of books, always the magic of books.

Magic I Made this Week: I worked from home once and had long stretches at work twice this week which was great. Supported both kids with their adventures. Tried to take time off. Tried to slow down my pace. Bought flowers. Sketched and did yoga daily.

Magic of Me that I explored Week: I didn’t do too much here. I did buy a new book, and watch some TED talks.

Top Goals Review:  

  • Work: didn’t write either of the docs, did keep up with email, did not finish last perf.
  • Personal: did daily drawing, did not journal, did do yoga, and did take time for me.
  • Family: did both tech challenge and science fair and registration, did not do math with N, cooked dinner once, worked with D very little. Did take a bunch of time with love of my life.
