Starting today off with a clear page, a clean slate, a new day dawning. New attitude, new eating plan and exercise plan. I have a new quilt to long arm, a new hexie to make and a new border to add on my temperature quilt.
Today I need to keep things fresh and new. Light and broken down to each simple step. Breathing deeply and staying calm.
I have to stop letting the little things put me in a tailspin. Change is coming and the biggest one is the talk of going back into the office and a date has been set in April if the return to offices is approved by the state and not extended. I panicked at first. I am not sure I can bring myself to go. I have really got “stuck in” to this work from home thing and being home. Introverts like myself love it and the talk of being thrown back out into the world is hard. I feel like I have to get used to swimming with the sharks again. I have to master small talk and interruptions, neither which I am very good at. I have been thinking about it and I am going to have to try to start mastering a new routine, the scariest of all.
So today, I am going to start looking at the frame work of a new routine for when I have to go back to the office in the next month or so. I have slowly let the idea sink in that my current state is going to end soon and prepare for it. I must admit that it is going to be really hard. I had to stop in to the office today and I nearly freaked out. There were very few people there so that was a good thing. I did what I needed to do. I breathed the smell of stale, super hot 100 year old office building air. I had forgotten how hot it is up there. I looked around at the the space and familiarized myself with my office things. Sat in the chair, took several cleansing breaths and then came back to my home office.
It was a start.
