December Challenge Day 13

Yes that is correct, I missed a day!!! Noooooooooooooo

Yesterday things just got a little out of hand and I forgot my golden rule. The point of this challenge, is to allow myself 10 minutes to check in, write and explore how I am feeling. It was 11pm before I had the opportunity to even consider it and I thought sleep was more important. However, as it turns out……… I couldn’t sleep and in hindsight a ‘check in’ may well have been the right thing to do to put my mind at rest.

Anyway, you live and learn. I am here in front of the computer now, so today…..

  1. Something I learnt: Time out, emotional check ins and self assessment is vital for mental wellbeing.
  2. Something I am grateful for: My kids. Some days they drive me around the bend, but I am very lucky to have two beautiful, healthy and mostly happy kids. Both, excelled themselves with their school reports this semester and I am very proud of their achievements, but more so by the fact they set themselves goals and strived towards them…………. especially the one who usually coasts along. I think he might have even surprised himself.
  3. Something I want to improve: The old habit of putting myself last. On those crazy, crazy days it is ok to say enough is enough, I need a break. Even if for only 10 minutes.
