So, I’m still feeling good. And, that shouldn’t be a surprise based on the monthly calendar I keep to track myself. My moods go up and down in a cycle, and this is the perfect week for feeling real fucking great.
OKAY SO I GOTTA DO STUFF!
I’m trying to take full advantage of the energy I have right now, and reminding myself that it won’t always last… and that when I’m feeling down I need to tell myself I had this day.
For writing a post, editing stories, brainstorming, exercising, dress fitting, critique group, and all the nonsense filling daily life. Especially for eating as well as I can, as it’s so much easier when I have the energy to cook and take care of myself. So in a couple weeks when I can’t help but eat cereal and milk instead of eggs and veggies, I’m not SO HARD ON MYSELF.
Maybe I should set a reminder for myself to come back and read these articles in a few weeks… that might be interesting.
Okay, I’m gonna do it. And here’s my message to me:
You went hard when you could. Now, it’s okay to sleep in and to rest. It’s okay to Reddit… do your best to read a book instead maybe but IT’S OKAY. Because you took advantage of the good feelings and now if you need to watch 4 episodes of the office, let that be okay. Okay?
