European Healing Journey - Day 6

IMG_4818.JPG

Feeling pretty proud today. I went to see the magical acupuncturist yesterday, and he warned me that if I didn't drink enough water yesterday, I'd be in serious pain today. Well, I'm pain-free, so I did my job! Proper hydration on the rise.

Today was another rat race of me frantically rushing to get work done in between coaching sessions. I love the coaching, but I have trouble managing time, so I am always far too ambitious about what I think I can accomplish in one day. Like, today, I was convinced I could do laundry, go to the post office, make a PPT, do 2 one-hour coaching sessions, get my taxes done, get ready, and be in Manhattan by 5 pm (it takes 45 minutes to get there from where I'm staying). I woke up at 11 am. Praying this European healing journey gives me the power to create Einstein time.

Once I got to Manhattan, I had THE BEST time catching up with coworkers from when I was a VP of Marketing at PIMCO. I started as a temp, but lived the American Dream by working my way up the corporate ladder. And then quitting to be poor and start a business. But dreams don't grow on trees.

We had Pinot Grigio and truffle fries at a bar in Midtown, and I will not disclose the name of the bar because we had SO much space, and I don't want anyone else to know about this spot. SELFISH and loving it.

A dear friend that I've known since high school met me as my coworkers headed home, and we headed down to the The Nomad Bar on 28th Street. And EVERYONE already knows about this place because it was freaking packed so I can say the name all day long and it doesn't matter.

I ate a burger, and it was glorious. I didn't eat much today because once again I forgot to schedule in a lunch break. I'll get the hang of this eventually.

By 10 pm, I was turning into a pumpkin--and this used to be the time that I was getting ready to go out for the evening, but now my brain is fully formed and I understand consequences. We parted ways, and I journeyed back to Jersey City on the PATH train. 

I'm sufficiently tuckered out, and plan to take my 2nd bath of the day--somehow I managed to fit both of these in among everything else. Priorities.
