I have not written in weeks. I’ve fallen behind in my master’s degree work and even at work. I have been unable to focus on anything for more than a few minutes at a time. I’ve struggled to get up in the morning and going to bed at night only lasts for a while before insomnia kicks in. I’ve eaten so much sugar that I think I became diabetic in the last week. I have a great deal of things to get done on my daily list and I find myself staring off into space or simply wandering for hours instead. I have purchased lavender candles, lavender oil, lavender lotion, and lavender room-spray with the hopes of it relaxing me.
So why all this on Appreciation Monday?
Because I am still trying, still strong, still looking for answers within, still grateful, still thankful, still dreaming, still believing, still aware that I can and will…
Appreciative of myself.
