Midweek and tipping into positive. First time for a while. Good night sleep and positive call with the boss. Challenges seem manageable today. At least in my head they do!

Trying hard to be positive. I know the challenge ahead. I have the competency to succeed. Now I need the will, drive and determination. Easy to write. Harder to deliver.

Better day yesterday. I know I am wanted and I know I can ask for help. My problem now is what help do I want and need? Where do I want to go next? How do I find time to figure this out? Hmmmm.

Day off and actually chilling. A good run, doing some jobs and forgetting work. A good chat the boss yesterday. First shoots of a recovery in my mental state?

Realising today that I have been mugged by one of my colleagues. He gets my team member and I go short. I am screwed. Hmmm. Doesn't seem fair.

Just looking forward to a morning where I don't wake up with adrenaline rushing through me in a state of panic worrying about the failures that I see coming. 😳
