One foot . . .

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

. . . in front of the other. I wish I could be more witty and more positive and I wish that I wasn't so overwhelmed. But I did show up for SparkCoach, logged my breakfast, went to Morning Prayer, prepared for the painter today at my house, and got to work and am ordering my day. I have healthy lunch planned and I shopped for healthy food the other day and so I have that at home. I feel like I am in a maze, and I guess as long as I am in this maze, I'll just take a step at a time. I'm so used to taking care of other people -- and not myself. I feel awkward beginning to do this deeply. I will somehow get through this divorce and the move and this year of professional challenge at work.
I am resisting my tendency to isolate -- I think that could be deadly. Thank you for your support, everyone. I feel guilty, frankly. Yuck.

    What I the difference between the tools you use as a professional and as a at home person?

I think you might be looking at the total big mountain you have to climb instead of the one step at a time realizing that each step you will have what you need for the next.

    Yes, the urge to isolate. . . . . . I did that for a few months but decided to do something. Now I go to the club and go dancing once or twice a week and have made a couple of friends. More acquaintances but that's okay. One step is a good plan

    emoticon Been there, done that. It does get easier and it does get better. Baby steps are the only way through it. Just keep repeating that you are worth it!! And your name says you have the grit to get through it.

    I am proud of your perseverance and the fact that you understand that self-care is a priority. I struggle with self care issues constantly but awareness has brought improvement for me. Best wishes.
