Credit where it's due
Most of today has been spent staring into my laptop screen. First doing training for a new part-time, remote job I'm starting, and then later fixing up a word document for a photographer friend. Now, writing this blog post.
But, in between, I got my dad to help me finish my pallet shelf for behind my headboard, went out for a walk with the dogs, sold my old dirtbike to a kid down the street (woohoo, $100, I broke even on it!), and warmed up leftovers for supper.
So in reality, it wasn't too bad of a day. I got some good stuff done. Something I'm learning is to give credit where its due. All those things are actual things I did, and each one counts as a task just as much as the next one. So even though I feel like I only did two important things today, the training and the document fixing, in reality I did several more things. And each of those things deserves credit. Work things are not the only things that matter in life.
So, if you feel exhausted at the end of the day, and you feel like you haven't accomplished anything because you only did 1-2 work related things, maybe stop and think about the other things you did. Like got dressed, cleaned something up, made a meal, fed your dog/cat, drank water, made your bed, bought groceries, etc.
Give yourself some credit.
Also, here is a timelapse of our pumpkin carving/decorating from yesterday, and a picture of how they turned out.
