I bet that seems like a yucky blog title, right?
At first I thought it was going to be a cruddy day, what with the rain, and my crappy attempt at overnight crock pot oatmeal. I was was wrong. No fitness so far today. I did eat breakfast, even if it wasn't the planned oatmeal. I had a couple of eggs and a piece of whole wheat toast. But this is what really made the day great from the beginning:
I got up before the kids ~ This never happens.
My ol' man is off today.
Instead of my usual reaction to something not going as planned, which is to have a meltdown, I chuckled and moved on with a new plan.
I finally got to watch the season finale of Justified.
I know. It all seems small. But these things are huge for me. Ever since I came off of my anti-depressants I have had a hard time finding the silver linings in things. Any anxiety or depression I thought I had before I started taking it, was amplified after I got through the withdrawals and started trying to navigate without them again. It's been nearly a year, and I think I'm finally starting to feel stable again.
Now I'm going to take my stable self a nice, relaxing bath with a candle and some quiet. I may even sing a little.
