I love this topic! I can relate that I tend to focus oftentimes on the bad or the not-so-good I’ve done/will do instead of keeping myself in the present and acknowledging the good.
As of today, I’m glad I got through IPS Training (maybe with a few bumps along the way) as well as through another week of work despite the fact my head feels like it’s splitting itself open and I’ve been having a horrible time sleeping at night (if sleeping at all). I’m proud that even though I took a day for myself, I got back on my feet, dusted myself off and kept pushing through it and am trying to rectify the situation as best I can without overdoing it.
