Self Care Sunday

This Self Care Sunday morning finds me on a train to DC trying to type while I’m rocking back and forth ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have to meet someone at 7:30am tomorrow so I was given comp time and permission to travel today.

Things that made me happy this week were: the absolutely perfect weather this weekend. I enjoyed being outside yesterday. I also went shopping for a new work clothes and a robe. I stumbled across a delicious baby doll nitey. Out of curiosity I tried it on. I look boobilicious in it and fits me really well ๐Ÿ˜‚ While I had no one to model it for Saturday night,I bought it anyway because it made me happy and made me feel sexy ๐Ÿ”ฅ Who knows maybe Blue Love will need a private fashion show from me in my see through baby doll soon – I like to be prepared and feel sexy ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜ˆAnyways, it made me feel happy and sexy to buy and wear it around the house. Hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™ I am also happy I am finally going to the Museum of the Bible today in DC. I pass it a lot while in DC since it’s near work but this is the first time I can visit๐Ÿ˜Š

What’s bringing me peace today? hmm? In some aspects I have peace and feel peace in my life. In other ways, things are churning in me and around me. As I allow this to come to my awareness, I am recognizing Iโ€™m feeling some instability in my life and itโ€™s starting to feed into feelings of anxiety which means itโ€™s time for me to create stability in my life.

Where do I feel things arenโ€™t stable enough for me? Professionally is the biggest โ€œgreyโ€ area of my life. Donโ€™t get me wrong. I will not be losing my job. My job is secure. However, where I work in the “company” is in transition. Iโ€™ve been on a long term temp assignment for 8 months. I have 4 months to go. Not knowing whatโ€™s going to happen with it is causing me some anxiety. I took the opportunity to initiate conversations around the topic. I am glad I did because things started to become clear for me. As a result, I am now in consideration for a couple permanent opportunities; one of them could be my dream job ๐Ÿ˜ŠI have a meeting about that Tuesday. The biggest factor for me is the amount of required travel. I just have to accept & admit I do not like to travel that much. I am comfortable traveling to DC ๐Ÿ™ŒI’ve been staying at the same hotel near work so I know the area now but twice a month in a hotel is enough for me. I know one position is based where I work now. I’m not sure about the other but I donโ€™t want to relocate either. I like living at the beach ๐Ÿ–

It was good self care for me to have the awareness to see and admit the situation I am in is causing stress and anxiety. I was good self care for me to have the courage to initiate the conversations. It was good self care to reach acceptance that I need stability in my career. Itโ€™s been a fun ride but itโ€™s time for me to wrap it up. I am happy that this experience is leading to opportunities I would not have had without the exposure this temporary assignment gave me. Hopefully, I will know where I am landing in the next few weeks.It’s exciting and makes me happy ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

My health is not stable right now. I noticed today that I have more energy and my stomach is feeling a little better than it did. It’s better but not 100%. A good flare up of Gastritis with LPR can take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks to resolve. My Doc called for me to come in and discuss biopsy results from my Endoscopy. I go 9/21. I would be shocked if I had Cancer. I really donโ€™t think thatโ€™s what he wants to tell me. I do believe we need to change my meds, I may need another procedure and he may want me to have an Oncology consult. I am not really worrying about this too much. Iโ€™ve been able to put it out of my mind thanks to the exciting developments at work. I just want to get back to feeling good and figuring out what is causing this brutal flare up.

Poetry always makes me happy. I Included a Blue Love Haiku on this post. In case you missed it, my last post was a new original Poem, “Return To Love – Blue Love Poetry”. Scroll down to read it.

How have you practiced good self care this week? What is making you happy this week? What’s exciting you? Would a see through baby doll nitey excite you? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

7pm update: One of my favorite Gospel songs, “Wayfaring Stranger” is featured in the Museum of Bible. So much to see there on this visit. I’ll have to come back a few times๐Ÿ˜Š I LOVED it. I also felt spiritually connected there. The Nazareth Village of Israel on the third floor is AMAZING๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ It could be my DC happy place- I really am a nerd ๐Ÿค“ Also, I need to read Deuteronomy! Every Bible verse quote I really like came from that book and I loved the 11:11 in this one! The next Museum I want to visit in DC is Newseum ๐Ÿ˜ŠI walked past it tonight after it closed.

Deuteronomy 11:11
