I’m feeling calm, even centred, tonight.
It’s been a busy day. I had a meeting to cover this morning, followed by an appointment with M this afternoon. We had a good conversation, covering a lot of ground, talking about things I want to work on in 2021.
He said that I seem calmer, more relaxed than he’s seen me before. He’s taking that as a step in the right direction for my recovery. I am as well. I’m maintaining at a level that, while still not equivalent to full-time, is still further than I’ve been able to maintain in the recent past. With the growth I’ve been seeing over the past few years, I only have reason to expect it to continue on.
As far as work goes, I did manage to get one article written today, as well as doing an interview and writing up the notes for it and another one. I did. I got a good few hours in on my essay as well. I’m approaching the half way mark of my second draft, which I am happy about. Another few hours and I should have it done and ready to submit. Unfortunately, I don’t know that I’m going to be able to touch it again until Friday.
I’m in meetings all day tomorrow, and then, hopefully, back into my filming routine with the Pastor on Thursday. Thursday afternoon I’m headed into Stettler with our new vehicle to get an oil change that they forgot to do before we picked it up. Oops. No big deal though. The guy we were dealing with was awesome, and he said he’d make it right, which he is. We purchased our new vehicle through Highway 12 Auto Sales in Stettler, and I can’t say enough good about them. I definitely recommend them to anyone.
Anyways, I digress. Friday is looking like it’s going to be a catch-up day, working on my essay, video-editing and story writing for the paper. At least I’m not bored. It just further emphasizes the need for me to pull back from my YouTube plans. I have a lot going on as is, and as much as I hate to say it, the last thing I need to add is more onto my plate. The key thing is, I’m recognizing that fact, which has me a lot further ahead than I used to be.
Speaking of my YouTube channel, I am hoping to get some work in on my new office for a couple hours this coming weekend, just to slowly plug away at getting it cleaned up and in shape for my future plans.
Mentally, I’m feeling good. Calm. I feel like I am where I need to be at this point in my life. I’m grateful to be able to share my journey using this blog. Thanks for following along.
