The work pattern is back as it was before. So far it is OK. Will it be ongoing? I don't know yet...there's a balance to be struck somehow.
Maybe this is the 'back to normal' that I was yearning for. Life still has many challenges, but this is a new 'normal' that is much more manageable. (And, no....I myself am still not normal!)
So far, so good. I'm now feeling much more optimistic about the future.
'The Thursday Plan' has worked brilliantly. A perfect mix of achieving necessary tasks and having some time being 'me.'
I didn't feel ready as such. But, actually, it was fine. I'll get there...one step at a time.
Through this negative experience, there has been much to learn and there are positive outcomes and new doors opening.
'I don't want to go, but I have to.'
But with the knowledge that there is no choice, at least for now, I am ready to get on with it.
I don't feel ready. But it has be done. And all will be well. One step at a time.
