It's the start of another work week. I spent the weekend resting and making self-care my top priority. The agenda was full of massage, reiki, Epsom salt bath, physical therapy exercises, meditation, and some at home yoga. And ya know what? Something must be working. I felt the best I have in weeks. I had significantly more energy, and my pain went from being on full blast to dialed down background noise.
Feeling so good (relative to how things have been) I almost didn't want to say anything out loud. I didn't want to jinx it. The reprieve from pain and fatigue will be temporary, but how long it might last is the real question. I have to travel this week for work, so that will most likely be the end of this streak. I'm hoping that all the self-care I did over the weekend has given me a high enough balance in my energetic bank account that I'll be able to withstand the draw on my resources this travel week will bring.
Trying to come at the week with a positive mindset, at least this morning I'm pretty good, and I feel ready to take on this week. Or at least take on this day. One step at a time. I've got this. You've got this too.
Let'd do this!
