sliding back, moving forward

Instead of sleeping in for the cure (which you can do by just donating money), my friend and I woke up dark and early this morning to walk the Susan G. Komen 5k. The Boy ran it because, let's face it, he's good like that. It was really amazing to see so many people out for the cause. To see so many survivors. Bubba's Fam, totally thinking of you all.

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.

I like your concept of "Rinse. Repeat."

I also went to walk the 5k. And Bubba's Fam were totally on my mind as well.

Love your Grey's reference. Seriously.

And I agree, the bad habits are the ones easier to fall into. Good luck with your relearning. I need to do some of that too. Sigh. ;)
