Day 105: Taking it Easy

Posted by intrepidshe , in Healing Work, Happy Things 25 March 2014 · 207 views

Mar. 25, 2014 (34 Days Into Becoming):
 
Tonight I will not grapple with a healing topic or work on an exercise. Although I do have an exercise from my T. Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow or some other day. No hurry.
 
I'm going to watch a little TV and try to turn in early. I'm wiped out after the intense emotions I have felt the last few days and the nearly non-existent sleep that has gone with them. I'm tired . . . but I'm not feeling anxious or panicky. I have felt angry and sad but I've had none of the physical symptoms I get when something is bothering me.
 
I believe I have had my first taste of what it's like to just feel difficult emotions and express them.
 
I'm off to take it easy for the rest of the night.Posted Image



It was good to see.   I think it's powerful that you recognize that you needed a break and felt okay taking one.  It's a deceptively hard thing to do.. at least for me. 

Sitting with you, Intrepid.

Good self-care.

Great progress.

Yes, I push myself too hard sometimes. I'm getting better about it.

Thanks! I enjoyed some TV and slept a little better last night.
