#Monday really beat me up this week.
I woke up late for work, had car issues, spilled a cup of coffee in my lap. when I finally started my shift I got punched by a patient. (Alcohol withdrawal is not pretty! I can only hope this is his last time). I thought it couldn’t get worse, but that was only the beginning...I’ll spare you the details to spare others privacy, but it really sucked. 😖
Monday ended, but then Tuesday came.
The self care plan I had in place -camping at my favorite ski resort- fell through. I drove 2 hours to get there to find that they close the RV lot on Tuesdays. 🤦♀️😓
Right there in the parking lot of Stevens Pass, I broke down bawling in the drivers seat. 😥
This week has challenged my well being to my wits end. 👉And it feels like it’s going to last forever!!👈 After my public breakdown, I strapped on my skis and took out my frustration on the slopes.
Instead of camping, I came home and completed my bedroom zen project I’ve been working on for awhile (pictures included!) and maybe I got a little shopping therapy in.
I went to the gym, I called a friend, I cried it out. I hugged my dog- a lot.
And I didn’t drink.
I woke up today feeling hopeful. Nothing really changed except that it’s a new day with new possibilities.😊
works! It’s not instant gratification. It doesn’t numb the pain. But I’m capable of handling the shit life throws at me, and by staying #sober
I was reminded that everything is impermanent and i have a choice of what to focus on.
Monday will come again, I know. But #justfortoday-
I’m uplifted, I’m calm, and I’m having a great hair day. 😉
