So for the first time in my life, I am actually not doing something fully.
For a month or so, at least, I am working… *gasp* part-time.
To be honest this was something that would never have come to me as a feasible idea.
Work part-time? And have… all that free time?! Apart from weekends?! And take home less pay than I already am making?!
But once I made the decision, it felt so right, so why-didn’t-I-do-this-earlier.
“Finally!” I could hear my body saying. “I’ve been trying to tell you for so long!”
OK, buddy. I’m listening to you now.
On the first weekday I did not have to go to work, I found the time and motivation to finish an online course I had been putting off. I enjoyed a slow leisurely lunch with the brother. I went cycling and soaked in some Vitamin D and produced some endorphins. The exercise was so beneficial that I felt motivated for the first time in 2 months to compose new musical ideas for sessions! Then I cried and used it as a wonderful opportunity to practice self-compassion.
I have no idea what will happen from here.
But let’s see where this journey is going 🙂
