day 50: holy doodles!!!
here's to not doing nothing for 51 days! 🍻
when I find myself sad again I remind myself of this fun fact
I like having a job bc it forces me to do laundry and take showers regularly
also it's nice to leave the house and then come back and be able to notice if my surroundings smell or if all the fire exits are somehow blocked by clutter
I won't be playing the blame game since I'm only 2 weeks in, but I know I have to start changing my evening routine soon or this is all going to stick. I used to fall asleep to tv shows, now it's audio books. I'm slowly reducing the stimuli one day at a time...
Scaling down expectations has helped me through some dark moments
I hope you appreciate yourself, even if it feels hard to see how
Thank you for your toot
day 36 cont'd: I think that something I haven't prepared myself to come to terms with is accepting motivation as a game of snakes and ladders
Getting a job is like hitting a ladder, but now that it's my new normal, I'm seriously at risk of stagnating into a new low and I need to start moving forward again
Likewise, I might hit a snake in the future but I can't accept that as the finite end
Nothing is ever as good or as bad as I think it is
day 20: I got up and made tea 😅
