I can’t believe how fast this week has flown by. I really haven’t felt like I’ve had a moment to breathe since moving, so I’m finally taking this opportunity to write. I know I didn’t do my usual Monday reflection, which I feel like I have a good excuse as to why. But here I am now, in my new home, laptop on bed, doing what I love.
As I’ve said before, I have a hard time controlling my anxiety in high-pressure situations. I mean, a lot of the time I put the pressure on myself and I try to focus on letting things go, but it’s not always as easy as it sounds. If you’re pinpointing stressful moments in life, I would say moving is way up there near the top. This is the first time I’ve moved into a new place where there’s actually nothing there. I think I thought it would be easier than it was, but then again the places I’ve moved into before either were furnished already or I had roommates there who were able to receive any of my stuff before. So this was the first time I had to do everything on the fly. Looking back on how stressed I was on Monday, I can’t believe how much we got done in a matter of days. Luckily, we had one piece of furniture and our mattress delivered before we stayed here, which made our first night a bit better than I think we were both expecting. But it has been fun to shop around and find some fun and different items that we may have skipped over if we were just looking online.
So here’s to one crazy week in the books that tested both my patience, anxiety and just about every other emotion I have. But, as it is Monday, it’s time to set up some serious goals for the week ahead.
- Get to writing again! I love writing my blog and it felt really weird to not have time to put my thoughts into words.
- Get ready for Thanksgiving! I’m so excited for this year as it will be the first Thanksgiving I’ll be spending at home in a few years, as well as the boyfriend’s first turkey day EVER.
- Patience really is a virtue, and it’s one I need to work on more. When stress starts to creep up, my patience goes right out the window. I’m going to try to find ways to help me stay calm and patient when I become stressed.
