October 5th, 2020- Making time for what is valuable- journaling for 33 days

Hello October,

one month in the new job, and I pinch myself because I am doing fine πŸ™‚ yes, there have been occasional mistakes, stress, or insecurities, but despite all that, I feel lucky and grateful to integrate a fantastic group of people!

Yes, it is kind of strange to start it from my parents’ home in the South of France, where I try to make space for myself after many years living by myself in a quasi-adult, quasi-independent way.

What I found out is that things are not always what they look like. When I was away, I was struggling between jobs, and occasionally, I ended up asking for my family’s help at the end of the month.

Now that I am back, I have a more regular job situation, but COVID19 sent me back home, since I work online and play with the cat.

Is this challenging? Yes, in a way, since I am an insider and an outsider at the same time. Old friends have their own rhythm, conversations some time are on things I ignore, and the pandemic doesn’t make socialising so easy.

Nevertheless, this new situation has been a tremendous opportunity to focus on what is valuable. And to do it in a different way. It is time to evaluate priorities and to find new ways to socialise and to connect.

Going around with a mask and speeding back home to disinfect is not the best way to make new friends; maybe I can invest more into online friendships?

In any case, I will go back into journaling, and today I feel proud to have waken up at 6.30, although half of the credit goes do the cat πŸ™‚

So I intend to write everyday, let’s see how it goes!

A time turner might be handy
