Gingerale, mostly

I feel SO much better having faced down the stresses, felt the emotions fully, and taken an evening off.  I need to remember more often how much that helps, whether or not I feel like it at the time.  It’s easy to get caught up in one thing after another, trying to escape from things rather than taking them on fully so that I can move past them.

Good in theory…much harder in practice.  But, they say that it takes many, many repetitions of something you’re not used to before it becomes more natural.  I guess I just keep practicing.

Anyway, post-meltdown I stole a little guilty Sims playing time and drank a lot of pop (for whatever reason), and I feel better now.  Doing things exclusively for the purpose of being nice to myself now and then feels awfully good too.
