So...2021...I’ve deleted several blogs since your start...
This Friday morning, I woke up from weird dreams and had to get up and out of bed. On average I wake up around 4:30am nowadays. I wish it were later, truly. I look at the bright side and enjoy the quiet time for reflection and meditation, time to catch up in the news before it gets repeated, go through my daily checklist to make sure I don’t forget anything important...like health screenings, medications, vitamins, food tracking etc. etc.
The news is littered with updates of the political and coronavirus realms. It’s been like that since last year. None of it is very uplifting...in fact people I know cry everyday. I just cannot do that. I shake my head, pray that in the end good will win over evil, and move on. We are in a pandemic....I do my part by staying home, masking up, and taking care of this little piece of the world and those who inhabit it. Granular? Most definitely. Basic? You betcha. It’s how I survive through stressful situations.
This past Wednesday, I received word from the International Business Aviation Council that my company’s audit process was concluded and we were granted registration to be one of their operators. I have been working on this audit since last August. It’s what I do. It’s been a topic of many a blog dealing with stress. You’d think I’d be happy and smiling and jumping for joy! Instead, I read the email a few times...and wanted to cry. In fact, I did. There was no relief of it being over. This registration holds us to a higher standard. I have to do this audit again next year. I have to prepare now so next year we are ready. The job is not over by any means....especially with changes going on right now...changes that are good, that help with the higher standard. It’s my job to make sure everything is accounted for. No pressure.
The other audit (yes, there were 2) is not done yet either. I received word last Friday that we were all good for renewal pending an on-site visit...in the next few weeks. It’s been a week and I have yet to receive word of that visit. The unknown is grating on me.
In the meantime, I have seen the post holiday weight gain of 5 pounds. Not really happy about it. Lots of carbs, not enough plants. I know what to do, I just don’t have the willpower. I admit it. Being honest is half the battle right? The first step in turning the ship back on course.
Movement is at an all time low, thanks to winter and audit workload. I noticed that I barely moved one day because I was doing data entry all day. Again, I know what to do, I just don’t have the oomph right now.
I sound just like my hubby! The one constant I know about me is that this too shall pass.
Writing it out helps me move on. It truly does.
And with that, it’s time to move on! The day awaits!
Thanks for reading! And happy new year!!
