Coming off of the previous week with the flu and a car that was less than operable, I found a surge of energy and focus as February has begun. Making it the gym, having time to cook and eat a semi-healthy dinner, and finally getting to a point where work doesn’t have me feeling like Rome is burning have been major confidence boosters, as you can imagine. I even ironed! I’ll say that again because somewhere my mother just fell out of her chair: I even ironed! Twice! Sometimes small victories can add up to big rewards.
