Weekly Reflection 2019 – 15

Magic I Saw this Week: This week had magical moments. Monday and Tuesday were pretty ordinary and long work days. Wednesday through Friday, I worked from home. I saw lovely magic in sunshine. In my kids shining at school, my husband shining at work. I had the magic of friend time on both Thursday and Friday, how lucky am I? Overall, I didn’t work hard enough to look for magic this week but it still was inevitable in my life.

Magic I Made this Week: I called my mom which was magical, and talked to both of my nephews. I met with two different friends on two different days. I took time off. I made art. I did yoga. I showed up and I rested, too.

Magic of Me that I explored Week: I am not doing super well here but I am trying to not give up on myself.

Top Goals Review:  

  • Work: did not write two more docs sadly, but did keep up with email, i did have some conversations. i didn’t get it done as much as I wanted to but i still made some progress.
  • Personal: i did my daily drawing, i journaled some, and did daily yoga. and slept, but not enough.
  • Family:  i bought kids packing list items, we started broadcom stem registration, i prepped for LA, i am closer to figuring out summer, and to booking camps. Did writing and math with N, did not cook dinner, did work with D a bit. Spent some time with love of my life.

I celebrate: David who had his recital night at school, a big culmination. and Jake who started consulting this week and is killing it.

I am grateful for: getting to meet with my friend Kelly.

This week, I exercised: i did yoga every day, but that was it since I injured my neck and decided it was best not to do body pump.

Self-care this week: met with a friend for breakfast and a friend for lunch. worked at home. i do appear to be getting sick but i am trying to rest as much as possible. i also went to the dentist!

I showed up for: my kids. my husband this week.

I said yes to: making it work so my husband could make space+time for his work.

I said no to:  nothing comes to mind this week weirdly.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Embrace: i am embracing the stage of our lives at this moment.
  • Alive: this was a down week but being with friends really does help.
  • Lighter: i am not there yet. will feel lighter when a few more items are off my list.
  • Kinder: trying really hard here.
  • Surrender: surrendering to the pace of our lives and to not having all the answers yet.

What I tolerated this week: a little sickness, allergies, not being super productive.

My mood this week was: lower than i’d like.

I am proud of: how much we are each supporting each other.

I forgive myself for: how long it’s taking me to make progress.

Here’s what I learned this week: I am learning to give myself grace, to recognize what’s hard for me, and to get help wherever i can.

What I love right now: I love that the sun is back, that we are coming towards a season of (hopefully) some magical experiences together and individually.
