– Ended Vacation 1 day into it
– Knitting project hits major snag – having to block 30 squares. Not sure how to sew them together
– Moved Intentionally 5x
– Sat with urges to spend money instead of eating – understanding this is a form or rebellion against our new reality
– Read Taylor Stevens The Innocent
All in all, I’m actually OK with this week. It sucked that our company chose to give DH his bad news the day before we started our vacation. It sucked that they gave him the bad news just 2 hours after I learned I was being promoted. It’s hard to celebrate my promotion in light of the bigger looming concern of the loss of our primary income.
I’m OK with this because I handled it, for the most part, in a healthy way. I didn’t try to ignore my feelings or discount them. I didn’t try to distract myself by being too busy. I did take care of myself by continuing my practice of Intentional Movement.
As long hubby and I take care of ourselves (he made a huge step yesterday and I’m so proud of him) and we support one another, we’re going to be OK with whatever happens.
About the Intentional Movement – I didn’t want to go play with Leslie this morning. I wanted to be lazy. But I told myself “20 minutes. Just do 20 minutes and see what happens.” I chose a different walking program – faster one – and 15 minutes into it, I felt this huge rush of energy. I made it through all 3 miles and feel great.
