nurslaurie09 It's time for Chippy to sing again
I have been away for a while because I was in a shame spiral – couldn’t face what I wasn’t doing, couldn’t admit to myself…On one hand, I was productive in some areas such as in getting the huge paper done for class…but in other areas, I couldn’t keep the plates spinning and they broke.
But today is a new day, a new month, the start of the rest of my life as the old cliche goes. So my overarching goal for this month will be to be present, to accept where I am so I can deal with what I need to deal with and grow, and to be patient with myself and remember that these items are “goals” that I am working toward and not a set of laws to judge myself by.
If I remember “Progress, not perfection” I’ll probably be kinder to myself and therefore more successful and happier in the long run.
