I didn’t make it long before going on another hiatus. The reason for it, though, is a good one.
About a week and a half ago, Husband and I signed papers for our new home. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of packing, cleaning, moving, working, drinking, and eating. Not much in the way of cooking, exercising, or sleeping. You know. All of the things that I said I was going to do a better job with so that I would feel better, physically and mentally.
Here’s the thing, though: This is how life goes, sometimes. There are big things that happen that derail efforts and results. The trick is to not let it get you down. The trick is to regroup and get back to what you committed to doing.
So that’s what’s in store for me this coming week. It’s Sunday night, I got out to play a little last night, blow off some steam. I slept a lot today. I have a plan for tomorrow.
And in the meantime, the stress is starting to dissipate a little bit. We’re settled in to our new home, and the sale of my previous house gave us enough equity to pay off all of our debt, aside from our vehicles and new home. It’s an incredibly liberating feeling, and it really does help eliminate a lot of financial stress.
All this means that the groundwork is laid for an even better chance at success. No, things aren’t perfect. There’s still a lot of interpersonal issues to be dealt with that will go a long way toward improving the mental health aspect of things, but that’s OK. Slow progress is still progress, after all.
