sliding back, moving forward
The rest of the day has been spent getting a little R&R including catching up on Grey's and crossing some things off lists. I have been in desperate need of this time...
I also jotted down a few things in my old-fashioned, bound, paper journal. I re-read the last entry (or two) whenever I write in there since it's so infrequently. It is amazing to see how far you can come.
I've also been thinking today about how easily one can fall back into one's old habits. I wish it were the good ones but it seems the bad ones are easier to fall into. Can people change? Sure. How could my answer be otherwise having majored in psychology? It just takes sooo much work. And you can put effort into something for years, have one bad experience, and it's all seemingly for naught. Rinse, repeat. You just hope that the relearning happens more quickly. So that's where I am. Trying to relearn. Trying to keep my own issues from initiating the ol' vicious cycle. Getting some much needed time in my head without a million obligations pressing themselves in. It's been a good day. Seriously.
