Happy Easter/Checking-In

Good afternoon blogging friends and Happy Easter! Its time for my weekly check-in.

Things have been rather mellow and productive this week. I can honestly say its been an enjoyable week. It’s not very often I can put “mellow” and “productive” in the same sentence, and then to have “enjoyable” in with it, well that is definitely something to be grateful for.

I usually have way to much going on mentally, way way to much, which causes me to usually be in a negative mood. I will end up putting things off and hibernate in the safety of my home. Telling myself I will take care of things later, such as appointments and errands.

But this week I felt different.  Of course I still had the ocd thoughts and still had my ocd “rituals”. I even felt my anxiety creep in. But, I felt better. I felt energized, and motivated to complete things I normally wouldn’t. I somehow was able to keep my anxiety at a minimum as well as my “rituals”.

I love when I can look back at my week and see that I have improved in some area. Even if only for a moment, an improvement is still an improvement.  I know that tomorrow my mental health could hold me captive in my mind. I know it can cause me to isolate and feel frightened.  So when I have a week such as last week, I will definitely hang on and embrace it. I will appreciate and be extremely grateful for it.

Today I am drinking my coffee, listening to the birds sing, and enjoying the beautiful weather.  Today as I sit here writing this post, reflecting on my week, I am feeling grateful for the small victories I was able to make.

I hope you all take the time this weekend to appreciate the simple things. Take a moment to look around, and smile. Take a moment to be grateful for your progress no matter how big or small.

Happy Easter
