I've been trying harder to 'embrace.' I got especially sick the last week of January, and I had to use my OLW a lot to stay focused. I managed to attend my classes though I was feeling really crappy, to put it bluntly, and although I missed two days of practicum time, I'm embracing making those days up. I know it's worth it compared to potentially getting my kids sick! (even though I probably have to lose 16 hours of paid work time to do so...)
My paper came back with a less than ideal grade because I missed the mark on the assignment, and instead of being crabby about it- I got to work revising.
Those two paragraphs were what I was able to capture about February. I was feeling sick for three weeks before I started feeling myself again, and I was surprised how down I got about not feeling alright for a few weeks. I was trying to have a better attitude about it since I know SO many other people have it worse- they're going through chemo, their normal day isn't even half of my crappy day, etc... but it was still rough. I guess we're used to what we're used to and what it isn't that way, it gets tough.
Well, I've also been doing well with embracing my other half- and myself. Sometimes I look back and I'm amazed at some of the arguments we had (mostly that I caused) because I was so insecure about certain things. I've gotten so much better, but not without many discussions about it and without some self-reflection and toning down my insecurities and unhealthy wonderings.
Lastly, my attitude about school has gotten a little better as well. I'm trying to roll with the punches and complete my work ahead of time to avoid burnout and severe procrastination-related stress. My practicum is going well, but I wish I was doing better. I know a lot of things come with time, but my reactions to the kids need to get better when they're not on the ball.
I'm just taking things one at a time and I'm amazed with how fast 2015 is going by... it's already the END OF MARCH?! How are you doing with your one little word for 2015? It's not too late to pick one out (:
