I spent 5 days totally focused on me and my needs. I spent time with friends that make me feel good, I did things that made me smile and helped me to enjoy being me. Even though I spent most days at home...it was okay. And I even did some much needed housework...I cleaned windows!
My body feels better (for the most part anyway), my mind is a little more settled (but as the surgery gets closer I know that will change again), and I even made myself a new promise (one I intend to keep)...so overall I'd say the time away was a success.
I was hoping the time away would give me some ideas on what I could write here...but it didn't. I'm still kinda stuck. As much as some parts of me feel settled and ready...other parts just aren't so ready and aren't so settled. I'll work on that too.
Thank you for your comments and messages on the Facebook page. To know I've been missed felt like a hug. I hope you took some time for you and your needs too. We all need some down time every once in a while and it truly can be a healing thing for us.
take good care of you and thanks again!
