I picked a word to help me focus this year.
Have you ever done that?
I picked the word relax.
But life has been difficult lately.
There is change drifting through the air, from husband's promotion at work (excellent, but busier) to my youngest kid's significantly increasing education and medical struggles.
How can I relax?
I need a way to cope. So I write in my journal, talk to my friends, and I plan. A plan is essential to get us fed, paid, educated, and functional.
Even with a plan, it's not easy to relax. I remind myself that I picked the word relax because it is important to do so.
So I've been writing the word on my daily docket (like in the picture). Just along the edge, I doodle "relax." Then I plan some downtime, or a date with hubby, or a relaxing cup of coffee.
I'm going to get through this. I have a word and I have a plan.
