Having surgery, then sleeping through a good portion of my recovery, gave me something of a power boost. I felt better than I have in a long time. My mind was clearer, at least for a little while. After I came back to work full-time, I realized two things:
- First, the time I put in when I could only work part-time wasn’t as clear, coherent, or organized as it seemed at the time.
- Second, my priorities had shifted because I’d had plenty of time to consider what was going well, what wasn’t, and what I could do about it.
I cleaned up my messes. I cleared up my backlogs. Now, I’m feeling like I’m really and truly back. I’m ready to walk my walk and make it work. My priorities truly have shifted.
I’m going to keep these shifts close to the vest, but I’ll give you a hint…I’ve talked about doing this before, but then I lost track of it. I’m starting fresh, breaking free, and doing a little cheating.
It’ll make sense in time. For now, I’m just going to enjoy being back and keeping my little secret. :)
