This weekend I stayed home and avoided most people and the city of Boston. It was great! I’m rarely so productive on the weekends, but this weekend was an exception. I got a lot done, have snacks and some lunches for the week, and have clean sheets and a favorite outfit to wear to work tomorrow. I feel refreshed and prepared for the workweek, and not sad or frustrated that tomorrow is Monday.
Typically my Sunday nights are a little sad; I’ve just gotten a lot better at doing fun things on the weekends, and it’s sad to have to say hello to a week of emotional turbulence at work. However, my outlook has changed and I’m attempting to focus on positive upcoming activities and events. Each weekend for the next month or so involves fun bike related thing, and I’d like to make the winter less gloomy and more bright. There are cooking experiments and craft projects to be done, research to begin and all kinds of adventures to be had.
I think that’s why I started to write, and inadvertently picked November to do NaBloPoMo. We’ll see how it goes – but I think that this upcoming year is going to involve a lot more problem solving and confronting challenges, and much less feeling stuck.
