Musings

I’ve been a bit out of sorts lately. I think it’s due to the rainy, snowy weather we’ve been getting recently. I love the crisp fall air, colourful leaves, and the atmosphere of the season. But it can also get cold and drizzly which isn’t nearly as pleasant. Here’s hoping the weather will warm up again, even for a little. As you may have noticed, I was away for a couple of weeks. Then came back to chaos at work and the catching up process. We’re also down a couple of people due to vacations, so it’s been extra hectic. I’ve been really mentally drained and burned out.

But I’m learning to be kind to myself and have given myself permission to rest. In my free time I’ve been spending a lot of time reading and thinking. I’ve been tidying up my personal spaces at home which makes me feel productive. I’ve been cooking lots of comfort foods, which is especially nice with the cool weather outside. And I’ve been investing time in a new friendship which has brought me joy. I’ve also been more motivated to write, so hopefully I can share more content on here too.

So while there is struggle, there’s also been positivity. How have you been faring lately?
