Well, I managed to get my second assignment submitted for my Prose course, along with the first assignment for my Communications course. I’ve also managed to start on the first of three novels I’ll be studying as part of Prose.
Slowly but surely, I’m making forward progress.
This week has been picking up as far as work goes. I had two meetings today, as well as taking photos at the junior rodeo being held in Stettler on three Tuesdays throughout the month of August. Throwing a a couple more freelance assignments into the mix from a couple of the Castor paper’s sister publications, it is making for a fairly heavy workload.
Honestly, with everything going on it has been starting to get a little overwhelming. That said, I’m succeeding despite the stress. I’m definitely learning how to manage my time better, even if I do have to work on curbing my social media use.
Still, my sleep is better than it has been in I don’t know how long. I’m feeling tired when I go to bed, and I’m feeling rested when I get up in the morning. I feel like I am actually accomplishing things I set out to do.
I have come a long ways. It is a testament to the hard work I have put forward in therapy, DBT, and the commitment to learning my craft.
I know I am not doing as well as I am by myself though. I wouldn’t have made it this far without Lynn’s support, or Dr. M’s patience with me while we figured out the appropriate medication regime to be on.
I’m happy with where I am at right now. It’s the first time in years I have felt this way. I only hope I can maintain this feeling.
