It was rainy and cold the entire week, but it didn’t bother me much because I enjoy this type of weather when the days are short. If it’s unknown, Louisiana has interesting weather — the mornings could start out 40 degrees or lower, the afternoon reaches 70 degrees, and then when the sunsets we’re back in the low 40s. But that may be the case everywhere if we consider global warming.
I spent the week wrapping up a very challenging project at work and celebrating being able to move on to something else.. that will also be challenging. And that isn’t a complaint. I absolutely enjoy the work that I do regardless of the level of difficulty because of the learning opportunities that await me when I push through instead of trying to “get over” things. There’s a high level of gratitude that’s present as well because my manager and team trust my talents. And that’s a wonderful feeling.
The weekend was spent at my son’s 14U 7v7 football tournament. It took place within the community so no travel was involved, but I am definitely looking forward to the tournaments in the coming weeks that do call for us to hit the highways. Sometimes that includes the entire family; sometimes it’s just me and my oldest son. It allows us to get in some quality time and I cherish every bit of it.
Today’s practice was canceled due to.. more rain. This always gives me anxiety because I never know if this is the rainstorm that will cause flooding again. To aid in keeping my anxiety at bay, I packed a few things and headed to my sister’s home with the fam and watched some football. I’ve been doing really well at staying organized, keeping things tidy, and maximizing the time that I have in a day so I don’t have to do so much prepping on Sundays. I have more time to relax and soak up the last few moments of the day and ease into bedtime. These lifestyle changes + the discipline to stick with them have been game-changing and it makes it easier to face Mondays. Or any day.
So here’s to Monday. I can’t wait.
