Monthly Reflections – May

Where on earth has this month gone?! I actually have no idea what I achieved this month, it all seems to have whizzed by in a blur of madness. I feel like a broken record saying it, but wow!

Highlights and Lowlights:

Highlights –

A little long weekend road trip to the South Island of New Zealand! Although techinically I suppose this should be in the June recap… I’m late writing so may as well include it! What an amazing experience, and so nice to get away and go somewhere that phones didn’t work. Not to mention, it was freezing and raining so most of the weekend was spent curled up in blankets in front of the heater playing board games – what better way to recharge???

Lowlights –

My wee hospital visit this week… (also actually a June event I suppose) but awful none the less. I’ve been lucky enough to not have to visit the hospital at all for the M.E/CFS side of things (except for specialist appointments) so it’s been YEARS since I was hooked up to a drip. I’ll write more about my visit in a future post but for now let’s just say it was definitely a low light.

Goal Progress:

Flute and dance are both going swimmingly and progressing well. Next challenge? Start practising at home as well as in lessons! I might sit down and work out a little plan of attack to get this really happening. I’m loving getting more involved with both of these, but should definitely be careful about overdoing it. Energy is precious as always.

“Yoga and Dutch were my weak points this month. So I’ll be focusing on them for the month of May. (Wish me luck! . . . or energy?)” . . . yeah that didn’t happen – there’s always June right?

3 Things I’ve Learnt:

  1. MAKE A PLAN! stop just hoping it’ll happen and get out there and do it.
  2. Keep journaling – writing down what’s going on seems to help keep it real and actually makes it feel like life is going at a much more manageable pace.
  3. Sometimes, all you need is to go away, do absolutely nothing and not feel guilty for it.
