The dust got all kicked up in our house yesterday. The landlord, and then a nice guy from the gas company, came by to see about getting our furnace repaired. Some progress was made, and a lot of gunk was loosed into the air. I don’t know is that’s the primary factor, but I have a heck of a cold today. Head congestion, lung congestion, fever, sore throat. The whole good time.
As I’ve shared before, I happen to have a touch of manic-depression. Nothing kicks me into a depressive cycle quite like losing an entire day to being ill. A while back I stumbled across an antidote, and I was glad to have that antidote today. The trick is to get something done anyways. That way when the day ends, you can at least feel the satisfaction of moving your work and goals forward.
I find it doesn’t take much for this to work. Today I got some web work lined up, and answered some logistics questions from another client which may lead to more work. I also got some progress made on my coloring book project. Additionally, I managed to get a few more job applications out, along with doing some transcription work. Finally, I am following through on my experiment to post every day for 2017 by writing this very post.
I’ll feel like crap when I go to bed tonight, but I won’t feel like crap who didn’t get anything done. I’ll sleep much better that way.
