Back to Reality!

It's true. Three full weeks have passed since my surgery and today was my first day back in action. Such a whirlwind! I must say that the thought of going back to work after this extended time off was both daunting and intimidating. As expected, getting back into the swing of things wasn't easy at first. For some reason, before I left, I thought it would be a good idea to schedule a client presentation the day I got back, haha...only to regret it today when I showed up to a full deck of 25+ slides to revise! My head was hurting by lunch and I desperately needed to step outside and get some nourishment to regain my strength. Luckily, the trick worked and I was able to come back and rock the presentation and gain perspective on the tasks before me. Then before I knew it, the day was done and I was being whisked away by my A-mazing bf for a night of unwinding.

I truly can't believe how fast the time flew by. There were so many things I had hoped to accomplish, books left unread, projects unfinished, shows unwatched. I guess it just goes to show that even when life slows down, it's never really slow. There will always be more to do, see and finish. What does this mean for me? Prioritizing is key. As I reengage in life as i know it and am forced to spread my time and energy amongst many things, I must choose those things that are most important and timely and do them wholeheartedly. To make the most of what God gives me and be ok with some things left unfinished. Thus is life!

I'll post a new knee pic soon. It's looking so much better, although, the incision is definitely not straight, it's at least healing up nicely! ;)
