I now have company...

Saturday, July 14, 2018

And honestly the company was half the motivator (more than half?) behind getting my rear end in gear and getting things back in order here. It has been nice tho. And I have been managing thus far to keep things in ways I don't usually. I am washing dishes the second they are done being used.(in the past I might leave small dishes and mugs etc until there is an actual sink of dishes. to be fair while depression had its full grip on me I just filled the sink up. ) I like how this feels tho. Walking in the kitchen and not feeling that awful oh god I need to do dishes, but instead those dishes are dry lemme go ahead and put those away. And the trash...normally I would wait until the bag is full no matter what was in it unless it was just something awful. But this morning I made note that there were some scraps from our salads last night that might attract some fruit flies or the like and pulled the bag and ran it down to the dumpster. And the thing is I know that normal people do these things automatically but somewhere along the line, when I became so severely overweight that I had pain in most movement I got terribly lazy. Making excuses oh my knees, oh my back, I am just not up to it, and then things spiraled out of control. So really I will probably write a lot about really basic stuff for everyone else, but for me its finding a new standard of healthy, physically mentally and spiritually. I know it takes a long time for something to become a habit so I pray I will be able to keep the momentum going until it does become habit for me. Until my normal is the same as everyone else and I won't find myself waking suddenly to the mess around me like I did. Maybe if i successfully address these things as I am continuously working towards healthy on all levels I will be able to survive and fight off the depression if it comes for me again. That is my hope and wish!
