I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been feeling good this weekend. Nevertheless, I pushed myself to take a ride through the regatta at our local lake and take my daughter grocery shopping yesterday. It all caught up with me last night though. I had to take a sleeping pill to even fall asleep. I woke up this morning in time to hear the sermon at the online church I attend. I then took my dog out and heated up cinnamon rolls before taking a nap - something I never do unless I'm feeling really sick.
While this may not seem like a lot to some, I think my body was suffering from last week and trying to figure out how to cope with another week ahead. I don't want to dwell on these things though. Instead, I want to take a moment to celebrate the successes I've had this weekend.
Besides finding a new church to attend and get involved in (even signing up for some small groups), I've also been able to apply for some places where I can volunteer. I also added some more sites to the database of magazines I'm considering writing for and wrote 2/4 of the articles I need to write for a client. Today I want to work on some stuff for school, write another article for this client, and possibly apply to a few jobs.
I have big aspirations. Even though I may not be healthy, and there are days when I feel like giving up, I'm determined to push on to reach my goals/dreams. While I may take small steps and it'll take me longer to get there, I won't let this stop me from living my best life. It may look different than what I'd imagined when I was healthy, with God's help I can reimagine things to create a life that looks similar to this. It's a process but I thank God for the dreams and the help in achieving them.
