Gratitude Journal – Week ending February 25, 2023

Words in the wild grateful thankful blessed

I am back to work, and I sure can tell. I had my butt kicked this week. All the things I’ve been doing to take care of myself, half of it went out the window. Some of it is hanging by a thread. I didn’t participate in any of the weekly themes. I didn’t write any new recipes, articles, or other ideas. I was just trying to get by. I am though taking time for gratitude. I didn’t meditate or jot down anything in my symptom tracker app so you’ll only get the handful of days I jotted things down and random stuff. I’ll start with thoughts of gratitude on my mind right now.

I am grateful to have such a beautiful, kind, soon-to-be daughter-in-law. I get the chance to be the mother-in-law and grandmother I want to be. I think I’m not screwing it up too badly. I just love her and hope that she feels the same.

I am grateful to have a job that loves me just the way I am and that misses the hyper side of me. That was just nice.

I am grateful to have a husband that does laundry.

Okay here are the other things I jotted down this week.

I’m grateful my tempeh turned out perfectly!

I am grateful for Megan being a friend to all of her siblings.

Apparently, I put Neil doing the laundry already on the list. So, I guess I’m double-y grateful that my husband does laundry.\

Finally, I made a note of gratitude for my dad living in adult foster care. I forget what a huge stress taking care of him was sometimes and how much easier life is with him living there. I am most definitely grateful for that.

Self Care doesn’t always feel “good”

This week I’ve taken a hard look at self care and I have been really working hard at taking care of my physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. Notice that I didn’t write “putting myself first”. That is because I do not believe that is what self care is all about. My faith and belief system is very intertwined in service and I think that the concept of self care is sometimes twisted to mean “selfish”. They are not the same.

Complete Zwifting moron, HELP!

I bought myself a Zwift Hub for my Christmas gift. I do NOT know what I’m doing at all. I mean it’s true you don’t forget how to ride a bike, but the gears and all the other crap that comes with biking stress me the hell out. It’s kept me from really getting into biking. Running is easy. I am completely moronic with biking.
