it’s not easy, I know. there are circumstances and life dramas and damn other people and outside crappy events beyond our control.
(would you believe that – literally as I am writing this – my cat has just regurgitated semi-digested mouse on my office floor? gee, thanks cat.)
shit happens, on an all-too-regular basis. and now I don’t use alcohol to regulate and drown out my feelings then I get to co-habit with those feelings in ways that are still pretty novel to me.
so I still need to remind myself that that is okay. that I am learning by doing: by choosing to respond rather than to react, I make it more likely that I will do so next time, and every time it will get easier.
Wishing you bananas and good choices this Easter weekend. Oh, and a little more chocolate than is good for you 😉
