week in review

 

“sometimes to self-discover you must self-destruct.” ~rm drake

The past week was one that played right into the whole “the best laid plans” adage, all thanks to Mother Nature and the stupid spring cold I’ve managed to catch. As a testament, to create my week-in-review post I typically use my calendar as a guide to determine the past week’s goings-on, but this week my calendar didn’t quite match what actually happened. As in, it didn’t even come close. Yoga? Canceled. Therapy? Canceled. Work? Canceled (for two days, anyway).

For a planner + checker-of-lists, these sorts of weeks can really get me down, especially adding in the whole feeling-like-crap element. Work was left undone. Tasks remained unchecked. Cabin fever was in full force. Despite all of this, I’m trying to keep a positive attitude and give myself and my beloved city time to dig out and heal from the past week’s (unplanned) events + cancellations. It’s a work in progress.
