At the time of writing this and for the last two weeks, I’ve been fighting off fatigue, a muscle injury that’s causing headaches!, little appetite, and doubts about everything I am. A little here and there is compounding to a very difficult season of my life.
However, it can’t be that hard because I’m pushing through it. I’m forcing myself to go out and do things despite the headaches.
I went to happy hour with girlfriends on Tuesday then met up with other co-workers in Long Beach for a beer and hot chicken. I made a trip to SusieCakes to surprise them the next day too!
I had a date on Thursday night that went well but ultimately, it wasn’t a fit. It was a small blow to my self-esteem, but I had a good self-talk about who I am – intense and I scare myself sometimes with all that I do!
I took Friday as an opportunity to read a book recommended by a new friend and eat chocolate in bed.
I ran errands on Saturday, still looking for the perfect picture to go above my bed, and then shuttled myself to game night. What fun! We played Scattergories and Telestrations while drinking beer/wine, eating baked hot Cheetos because we’re adults, humorously arguing, and then settling in to some stand-up comedy shows.
On Sunday, I got energy from Emily M. and Emily S. as we met to discuss our next event! As things got going, I felt pumped about the support and community we are creating! I can’t wait to share more, but there is plenty of work to be done before then!
Additionally, I made some plans for the next few weeks. Looks like it’s going to be a busy October, one of my favorite months!
