Happy Sunday, everyone! I am sitting here working on some writing for a weekend writing competition but taking a break by focussing on all that I am grateful for this week. It’s been another mentally exhausting week until Friday when I was glad to wind down. I have some work stuff to catch up on the weekend even after my writing endeavours and I feel like it might be like this for a few weeks while I work towards certain deadlines. Anyway, it’s time though to look back with gratitude on the week from 7th February to 13th February 2021:
Sunday morning at the beach for a few hours – reading, relaxing, soaking in the sunshine and enjoying the sea
Sunday afternoon checking out a new cafe near my place and then wandering through the streets discovering new art
Most of Sunday reading and loving Shuggie Bain. Such a fabulous book!
Cooking delicious palak paneer for the first time
The arrival of a new laptop after seven years – partly a birthday gift from my sister
A good therapy session where I had so many insights and was able to come up with practical things to put in place
Validation from my manager about one of the projects I’m working on – my imposter syndrome is currently sky-high and I’ve been having dreams about work projects!
The lift in my apartment block finally working on Thursday. I could’ve burst into tears – I was that relieved!!
My test results from a second test coming back normal – we don’t know what was happening but apparently whatever it was, is under control now.
Book club on Thursday night discussing my favourite book of 2020 – Honeybee
Celebrating my 16-year Aussieversary on Friday by going to the beach after work with a beer and a book
Lots of love on my Instagram post about my Aussieversary
Nice chats with some social media friends
Lovely dinner on Saturday night at The Hold in Manly – I didn’t take photos because I stayed in the moment
I’m feeling a bit flat and drained but at the same time, after my session with my psychologist, I feel I know what I need to do and I’ve started working towards that. Goes to show, even if you work in the field, brainstorming with someone and talking out loud, helps with clarity and also, reminds you of what you should be doing.
How was your week?
