Weekly Reflection 2017 – 42

How I shone this week:  I spent all of this week in Seattle. Here are few ways I shone:

  • I tried to spend a lot of time with each of my colleagues and have the hard and deep conversations
  • I woke up each morning at 6am to exercise even though I felt exhausted
  • I talked to my kids and Jake every morning before drop off and every afternoon after pickup
  • I balanced social dinners with alone time and tried to get a reasonable amount of each.

None of it was perfect but I did show up and try my best.

Things I wanted to get Done:

  • Work: hmm i didn’t stay on my email this week. i’ll have to clean it all up at some point. i think the summit did go well. i made posters, yay! I did spend time both with T and C and see my friend Radhika! 
  • Personal: exercised every morning, ate on the clean side let’s say, i didn’t journal even one time there :(, did mapmaker 12 and brene art, scheduled November project and did my scrapping system.
  • Family: did math with both kids. Did not finish plan for D. made all of the lunches.  checked in with everyone. took photos and i am spending time with mom and dad!

I celebrate: being back home.

I am grateful for: I am really grateful to be back home in my own bed and super grateful my parents are here!

I nourished myself by: taking alone time when in Seattle so I could make sure to have the energy needed.

Reflecting on my worries:  I exercised. i ate not great, but not terribly. I didn’t organize my life at all. i did get a lot done in Seattle but indeed not enough. It definitely wasn’t a waste. I am not sure about the disappointment but I am trying to feel better in my head.

I let go of: making sure everyone is happy.

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

  • bold: i had a lot of bold conversations this week.
  • mindful: mindful that i need sleep and recovery
  • nourish: i still need more sleep.
  • love: i love my family so much!

What made me laugh this week: sweet Radhika and her family and all my work friends.

What I tolerated this week: a low-grade headache all week.

My mood this week was: tired.
I forgive myself for:  not being able to do all the things I wanted to.
What I love right now: i love that my parents are here!!

Here’s to a great week 43.
