Yesterday, I went out but quickly came home, as I was feeling out of sorts. I managed to give two things: I took a photo for some tourists, and I donated $2 to the food bank.
Today, I was home almost all day. I needed to focus on work, and the coffee shop was too distracting. Then I realized I hadn't given anything, and I didn't know what to do... so I emailed my sister a funny and inspiring get-well card (she has a slight bug).
The work I'm doing now is speculative - I don't know how much they'll accept. So I'm still in a pretty tense place about money (made a partial payment on rent, and I'm glad to have been able to do that...but I hate having to tell my landlords that I don't have it). Money feels really scarce right now. What's in my bank is enough to cover my Financial Situation payment and food for another day or two. But... I've made payments on all my bills. Today, I ate (not a lot, but I ate!). Today, my cat has food. I have a place to live, and I have what I absolutely need. Hopefully, the ideas I'm pitching will go over well! I know this will pass - you all know as well as I do that it will - and I just have to trust. But I also feel like I need to step up my giving somehow. Being inside, alone, definitely makes it a bit more challenging!
Hope you all had a great Monday. Cheers!
