Another day! I had another pleasant realization last night at around 9pm that this week is très laidback.

It feels so nice to not have something pressing to do at every minute of the day and evening!

While I have my client project - with steady progress each day, there's no need for stress or rushing things out the door. I wish I could go back to my past self (high school, college, etc) and teach her how to complete tasks and assignments gradually and pleasurably instead of waiting until the last minute and inevitably dreading the experience.

I've been doing a lot of personal development work during this period of COVID confinement - with meditation, thought work, and tuning in to helpful podcasts - and it has just made me realize how much progress I've made, as well as how much interesting work there still is to do!

This is SO important! The journey really is more important than the destination.
