I was all set up for the week and then…. there was an event. There was a death in the family and I went to visit back home. It was a sudden trip and I barely managed to pack and get on the plane. The last 5 days have been hectic and needless to say I didn’t get much sleep, let alone anything else. Work was put on a semi-pause, checking a few emails here and there, no social media and no blogging. I left my planner behind. Yes, you heard me right! All I could do to keep up was putting notes and reminders to book stuff in my mobile phone. So for all the times that I felt that the phone has drawbacks, it really came through for me over the last few days.

I got completely derailed. 

It’s been a while since I’ve had to deal with such shock so I don’t know where my mind was. It has taken me a full day and half to recover and I still don’t feel that I have. I am overwhelmed with all the things that I need to get done. And this was just five days. It feels like I’m really exaggerating but now I realize how it really feels to be working on my own. I am my own keeper and if I don’t hold myself accountable, I will be the biggest loser.
