I am covid positive. Breathing hurts a bit and I feel pretty rough. Cultivating a general attitude of acceptance, surrender and gratitude. Kids pretty scared. Hour by hour

Feeling rough so being gentle with myself. Up in night with distressed kiddo. Feels such a privilege to be able to be there for her, but it's hard when the ones we live are so hard on themselves. I'm Tired today so planning rests and breaks as much as this is possible.

Steady. Everyone in my household is poorly apart from me. One Covid case, one tummy bug and one disregulation with acute anxiety. Moment by moment here. Grateful for a home with different rooms, glad for food and support of friends. I am tired

Covid has arrived in our household. Kids and I are negative so far. My son had an asthma attack at 3am. I'm tired and feel fear. Taking the day an hour at a time.

40 min run / 20 min walk and a short modified hit workout. More study and then some more - taking breaks with meditation in them is really helping. Just stopped to play guitar briefly too which was joyous.

In pain. Glad to rest in bed and listen to inspirational speakers. Need to take today very slowly.

Woke feeling (self created) shame. Meditation and a walk helped let go of what wasn't mine. Good to have tea with people this morning, even though when I woke I didn't want to!

Met with life coach. Feeling hopeful. gaining clarity. Awesome guitar lesson - note to self - go back through old lesson notes more often. Enjoyed reading to kiddo. Made time to nap - that turned the day around.

Holding steady. Tired. Grateful for blue sky and walk along the tow path - I love the space and light and the cold this morning - it is bracing!

I feel yucky. My body is heavy and I've lost any gentleness for myself. The things I need to do to look after me are usurped by needing to look after sick kiddos and I need (again) to adapt to survive. I'm exhausted and this is no fun. My self care is usually pretty good but circumstances have been extreme for so long now that even that isn't enough. Sad.

My update deleted, which was momentarily sad. I'm cross with myself - I didn't show up for myself with food today. Lots of old destructive patterns. I'm cross - I thought I was through this. Apparently not. Juggling Studying hard and Looking after my older kiddo.

It's always difficult to see your self slip back into destructive habits. Forgiveness is important. You're only human, and you ARE getting better.

Grateful to wake rested and listen to inspiring words while staying a little longer in bed. Enjoyed sweeping garden leaves - I liked the fresh of outside and the engagement of the task.

sounds Zen-like, fully engaged in the moment.
