Yes, it’s still raining, and I’m loving it! My energy levels have been quite low today, but apart from pesky thoughts of “I really should get around to …” the dearly beloved and I are enjoying a wonderful day, starting Season 3 of Game of Thrones (yes, we’re behind) and generally just lazing about.
When you’re training hard physically, experts often suggest you incorporate “rest days” into your routine. I think it would be fair to say I’ve been training hard psychologically, so it’s been just lovely to have had the chance to lie on the carpet and lose myself in the Seven Kingdoms and their politicking for the afternoon.
What is this hard psychological work, you ask? Well, apart from my usual psychotherapy, there was a session with the new mental health worker, and my last session with the DBT group, and going through the process of leaving that. (Yes, a post about that will be written, in the fullness of time!)
Although I’m feeling tired, I also feel determined to continue working on my health. I feel like the vine in this picture, growing towards the light, using whatever supports are at hand to help reach my goal:
Today was a day to “lie fallow” and give my mind a rest, letting anxieties float free and putting stressors aside. Tomorrow, it’s back into the game of psychotherapy, followed by the joy of visiting a friend.
