As we come to the close of the first week back at work, I’m taking time to reflect and process everything.
I remember clearly the week before work commenced I was on a high. Excited, motivated and energised to make some serious strides on my own projects. But I also had that lingering fear, that a return to work out hurt my motivation as it so often has for the many years prior.
But this year would be different, 2020 would be where all of that changed. I even put in a few checks to try and prevent me from falling such as maintaining a clean working space, putting together a vision board (something that is still in draft mode and not yet complete), researching some new medication techniques and , giving myself this blog.
So how did I do?
Not… too bad actually. My energy levels and emotional state certainly took a hit, but not even close to the degree it did last year. And so I remain cautiously optimistic as we enter the weekend. There is a lot of my plate, many goals to hit. But despite my consistent whinging, I am surprisingly still the eternal optimist. Always hoping that tomorrow will be better.
