I'm in L.a. right now, enjoying the pre-CSUN fun. Today was pretty rlaxing, though the pain remains high from the flight out here yesterday. I've set some goals for myself, and am excited to see what happens this week. I'll try to put up at least one podcast.
I'm also using a new phone, and hell has officially frozen over because I actually have one that's accessible. If I sound tired, I am. I'm hoping to get some rest tonight, because i know from experience, I'll be pushing myself hard this week. Self-care and a strengths perspective will be good. I need to remember to give myself praise if I do something well. For some reason, I find myself dwelling on what I'm not doing "well enough" when I'm around other peopl with disabilities. Go figure. But it can also be an empowreing experience, and that's what I'm aiming for. I'll need lots of spoons to make that happen, and have to monitor my mind and body. I will need to be willing to be honest, without being too dark or depressing about my pain levels. This is a hard balance for me. Those who will, please pray I handle this week better than last year.
And, if you're reading this and will be here, say hi. I'm always with that handsome Mr. Julio, and using a blue support cane.
