Sometimes, things just don't go as planned. In fact, probably more often than not.... what we think is going to happen,
doesn't... and we end up adjusting to this "new" thing. Yesterday, I had the best of intentions to get some work done...
and instead I spent all of my day and evening doing something else instead.
I tried to go to bed early, but that didn't happen.
I hoped to sleep all night... but that didn't happen.
My hubby intended to have a temp job this morning, but had heart issues during the wee hours of the morning... so that isn't happening... and on it goes. The point is, there are time when you just have to roll with it. One of the better aspects of having a chronic illness
(I have Systemic Lupus Erythmatosis), is that you have your good days... and your not so good days. So, it is in your best interests to work around your disease. ie: when you feel ok, you get things done. If you feel really good you work a little ahead, and when you are not good... you take it easy. So it's this constant push and pull of working ahead, or keeping up... .and backing off. You learn to wash dishes at 3am if you are well enough to do so... and sleep at 2pm if you need to. Time (and energy) wax and wane... and you have to learn to just be in the moment more.
It's a very good thing in the big scheme of things.
And so this morning, when I found myself wide awake at 6am... and with stuff to do.. you just go with it. As a bonus...
I saw a gorgeous deer nesting in the yard, and was able to get a McDonald's sandwich when I ran an errand.
It's a beautiful, foggy morning out there... go enjoy it 💖 and I will see you all tomorrow.
