I decided that I’m not going to grade last week’s goals, because I try very hard not to beat myself up about things I can’t control. But here’s a quick summary for posterity’s sake: The closest I got to exercising was walking to and from the bathroom a million times a day. TMI? Sorry. I tried reading my book while I was laid up in bed, but I just couldn’t concentrate. I wasn’t able to attend the convention (obviously). I did work with Lulu on her obedience training during the week, but not very much.
While I’m frustrated about being sick (especially since Spring just officially began!!!), I’m trying not to focus on “not completing my goals” as a reason to be frustrated. I know it’s a silly thing to be frustrated about anyway, but sometimes you just latch onto something concrete to be mad about when the real issue is something you can’t actually control.
I’m learning to show myself grace about things I can’t control, but it’s a perpetual lesson. It is so easy to fall into the trap of blaming myself for my disease, even when intellectually I know that’s ridiculous.
This week, I’m taking a break from weekly goals. I’m still feeling pretty awful and I have no idea when I’ll be back to “normal.” I hope everyone else had a better weekend than I did! Haha. Thanks again for your kindness and prayers on my behalf. It is cheering to know that I’ve got a bunch of friends out there wishing the best for me. 🙂
