Some days are just difficult
Tuesday, April 03, 2018
I try to be a voice of inspiration, but some days it is so hard when I can't even motivate myself. I have had a lot going on lately, and getting back into the rigorous routine I had last year has been an up-and-down battle since the winter holidays. I keep looking at the calendar and thinking about summer break, when I will have a few months respite from lectures and grading and staying up till 2 am just to keep up. but it seems so far away. I want to get back into the same workout routine I had last year, but it seems just as I really get back to it, I get hit with another illness. I had grand plans to do an Olympic triathlon this year, but I am glad I set my first race in June to be just a sprint because I have doubts that I'll make it to Olympic this triathlon season, if ever. I keep trying to remind myself of just how far I have come, but some days it just doesn't feel nearly far enough.
I know I'm not alone. I know we all have these days. I am grateful for all I have. Just have to wait for the blues to work their way out of my system.
