I started out good and strong. I had a good plan. I was following it. All was well. Then a hiccup came along (more responsibility at my job). I was worried about how it would impact my performance but I had to take it in stride, go along, and just try to do the best I can do.
This scenario isn't new to me. It happens every February as World Whale Day approaches. We all work so hard and personally, it drains me. Probably more so because I am compelled to still do all the full-time Mommy and Wife things I want to do. But just like crossing the marathon finish line is worth all the hard work, so is World Whale Day. And I know I will survive the final miles (days).....even if I do need to crawl.
And what about that mantra? I couldn't really find one but have tied in what I found into my daily gratitude.
Today I am grateful for:
- Actually running some each day, no matter how little, since in previous years all running stopped
- Perseverance since it is what will help me through the final miles (days)
- A sense of humor
- Cold tablets....since they bring me temporary relief
- Friends and family who will listen to me whine and still love me at the end of the day
