Today was fantastic yet exhausting, I’m officially back to work. Granted, it’s still very part time, it’s still great to be back in the warehouse! It was a little bit overwhelming at first to figure out my schedule, but I started a spreadsheet to manage my day. I know it sounds stupid that I need to hammer out my daily activities, but if I don’t organize my thoughts I’ll end up overwhelmed and then I don’t want to do anything at all.
I’m excited that I have a period in the morning to do my writing, so you might just see more blogs. According to my new schedule, I should have about 2.5 – 3 hours of writing each week day. I know it sounds silly, but even the last blog (yesterday) took about 1.5 hours to do even though is only three small paragraphs. Writing takes a lot out of me, but I really enjoy expressing myself. It’s a great outlet, and I think setting aside time to nurture my mind is a really helpful thing. Anyway, I’m going to sit back and relax for the rest of the night so I can start fresh in the morning.
I think this new schedule is going to be a great new start, and a new phase in my recovery. I’m excited to have some direction!
