The last two months I have been battling the three-headed monster of seasonal allergies, thyroid and menopause. I have been doing my best to stay healthy and enjoy life but some days are darker than others. Lately I feel like I am either on the verge of tears or totally irritated and/or exhausted. Knowing it is out of control hormones doesn’t really help.
With the holidays approaching I am carefully planning out my time, trying to keep things in balance. I want to make sure I focus on doing tasks and errands for the right reasons. I need to remember that I am doing these things to make others happy and because I love them. But I also need to love myself.
So far my calendar looks balanced, quiet days intersperced with social events. I revamped my cookie baking strategy to include more kinds that can be frozen and thus made ahead of time. I have a shopping plan laid out, with all the buying done in the next 2 weeks.
And here is where you and this Blog come into play. Everyday in December I am going to pause and find the joy in the task or project or errand that I am doing. The goal is to focus on Gratitude as a way to fight the surging all over the place hormones. And I am going to share as a way to keep myself focused and accountable.
Here is to a hopefully Delightful December!
