Today was such a wonderful day! It’s like these great things are percolating and ready to burst forth. At least I hope so!
My contract was extended at work so I’ll be employed for another month. Yay!
I’ve been sought out by a recruiter and have a job interview tomorrow. It sounds really promising and right up my alley, so I hope it works out! Better yet, it would be for something permanent. I so long for some stability.
I ran into an old colleague at work. We’ll meet for coffee and maybe she has some job leads too.
A friend from out of town may be getting a new job here so she might stay with me for a month or two and chip in for rent. (Finances are so tight it would be a great help and she is good company too.)
I went to yoga and ran into no less than five people from my training program. And we weren’t even taking the same classes. 🙂 (Oh, and I had a very intense and great class, with no tears whatsoever!)
I’m super excited right now and I really hope that I can get the new job. (Hopefully I haven’t jinxed myself by talking about it!)
It’s nice to be excited because otherwise I would be so anxious! I teach my next yoga class in four or five days and I’m so far from ready! Eeek!
Time for some television to calm down, then back to the books. 🙂
(Are there enough exclamation marks in this post? 😉 )
As difficult and overwhelming as this past yoga training weekend was, it seems to have been really good for me!
I slept well.
I woke up at 8:30 am, bright-eyed and cheerful.
I have found myself singing and almost dancing instead of walking.
The sun is shining.
I’m only pleasantly sore, the feeling you have after a great workout.
I’m ready to rush out to meet the day and to even do another yoga class!
Today I was just exhausted. I think it was too late at night when I took the melatonin. Midnight-ish? I fell right asleep and slept until the cat pestered me awake. Then I fed her and went back to sleep until noon.
Despite the tiredness, though, I was very cheerful. I found myself singing as I made my lunch. The compliment yesterday must have gone to my head. 😉 Singing does really make you feel good, though. Something I never really realized before doing some of the chanting yoga.
Anyways, I did some tasks this afternoon, and then I went to sleep again until 7 pm. I’m awake now, but still so tired. So while I’m only 7 for 10 today, I’m okay with that. I’m going to go to bed early, without melatonin, and then hopefully be fresh for my test tomorrow. Likely the monster, I mean my cat, will wake me up quite early as usual, so I’ll have a chance to study a bit then.
Otherwise, the only news today is that I’ve made my decision. I will do my course. It’s yoga teacher training. I don’t necessarily want to teach, but having the option would be good. I’m interested because of the potential for self-discovery, community, and to increase my knowledge and practice of yoga. Yoga has been a major help to me with my depression. And I just feel like everything is coming together and that’s the path I should take. I’m so grateful to be given a scholarship from my yoga studio to study. I can’t pass that up. Also, it would add much needed routine to my schedule, something I really need since I’m not currently working.
I did everything on my 10×10 challenge except:
And I’m okay with that. I am in a good mood, just really tired. So I’ll listen to my body and get some extra sleep and hopefully awake refreshed tomorrow.
Today I definitely woke up on the right side of the bed. I was dancing as I dried my hair!
I’m not sure what caused the good mood, but I’m not complaining. Maybe because I’m feeling optimistic about my new daily challenge. Maybe because a potential new career avenue opened up yesterday. Maybe because of the slight boost to the Prozac. Maybe because when I was sleepy this morning I had the option to sleep longer and wake up when I was ready. I’m really not a morning person, so maybe working in the afternoons is good for me. Also, I didn’t need to contend with the morning chaos of a snowstorm – just the beauty now that it is under control. I was able to get ready at my own pace, and played music while I showered and got ready for work. And before I knew it my hips were moving!
I had a good morning! This despite lack of sleep and the temptation to cancel. Yay!
It was around 2 am when I fell asleep – meditating and blogging too late! 😉 – and my lovely cat woke me at 7 am, an hour earlier than my alarm. Thanks, Kitty!
I was super tired and ready to call off my morning plans. I thought and thought about cancelling. In addition to my fatigue I had my psoriasis treatment on, so I knew washing my hair would be a chore. Another disincentive. But I also reminded myself about all the work I’ve been putting into getting outside daily and gradually becoming more social. Big debate!
Since I had an extra hour, I decided to put off the decision and went for a nice long mineral bath while playing my favourite CD. I thoroughly washed my hair three or four times to remove the nasty psoriasis gel, and was feeling relaxed and somewhat more alert. I decided to go. And I had a wonderful time meeting up at a social gathering with people I did and didn’t know. I was very chatty, social and happy. I hope this means that Prozac will be a successful medication for me. I’m so tired of being alternately apathetic and anxious.
So, I just wanted to record this to remind myself that I can have a good morning and that it is worth resisting the pull of sleep.
