So I did a little experiment last week. Let’s call it trying to shift my perception.
You may or may not have noticed but I ditched my usual Monday post last week. That wasn’t because nothing had happened the week before. In fact the week had been packed.
It also wasn’t because I had no time to write it. In fact I had written the entire post already Sunday around noon.
But let me simply tell you and without going into detail that it had been such a horrible week that I just didn’t feel like sharing anything about it. Not even writing it down had had the cathartic effect it usually has. And I wasn’t in the mood to throw myself a pity party and wallow in my negative feelings any longer.
So I hit delete. I deleted the post and most of the negative feelings attached to it and started over new. Because that’s the thing to do. It might take me a while but eventually I acknowledge a situation I have no power to change, try to accept it and then move on. There’s only so much you can do.
