I Struggled This Week and I’m Not Sure Why…
My company instituted a travel ban for all non-essential trips. This happens occasionally as we draw closer to the end of a quarter so it wasn’t exactly a surprise and it has given me some type to recuperate.
But this week I was able to travel and I spent time in 2 different cities. The odd thing is that I was out of rhythm a bit and didn’t sleep well, which means my days felt a bit longer. Yesterday I was back in my hotel room around 4:30 pm and hopped in bed and never moved!
If you have ever spent time traveling you understand how incredibly important a good night’s sleep is and how lack of sleep can impact your focus tremendously. The other thing that I find important for me is to have a routine so that I can build a sense of normalcy. Checking in and out of several hotels each week can feel like you are caught up in a tornado at times and having a solid routine helps me feel grounded.
With that said I powered through and now I am home for a few days before I pack up again and hit the road. I love being home with Evelina and Bentley and there is nothing that could ever replace the feel of home and my own pillows!
I don’t have any lessons or deep thoughts for this week except to encourage you to tell those in your life how much you love them. I had a high school friend die last week from complications from a “routine” gall bladder removal. She was only 46 years old.
I cannot imagine what her husband and kids are going through. Have a wonderful Friday my friends.
