Checking in for 2024-01-19:

Today I spent part of the day doing my weekly review. I worked on focusing on what I can do this week and reconnecting with my next actions. I've really fallen off the wagon with this. I think I figured it out though. Part of what's going on is both feeling like I can't get started again (which is not true. I've done it before and I can do it again). There's also a part of me that is feeling overwhelmed with my treatment since the end of December. It took a lot out of me emotionally to feel like things were no longer working and that I needed more care to keep me going. It felt like I was falling behind and failing my treatments. But there's a better way to think about this. I can be grateful that I still have treatment options. I can be grateful that I still have my health and have a life that I can enjoy. Of course there are going to be setbacks: that's how life works. I can either get upset and depressed or I can do what I can do and make the most of each precious day with gratitude.

I'm not sure about you but I think living a life of gratitude is much more appealing right now.
