This week, things started to look up. Acknowledging that I was in a depression - not just to myself - snapped me into no seriously it's time to make change mode. Game nights. Instant photos. Walks to Ike's Lair for sandwiches. Nights on the couch watching too much Friday Night Lights --
No, really, that was a good thing. I was listening to what I needed, not ignoring it, and while four episodes of Friday Night Lights in a row may sound like depressive behavior (some of it was, sure), I knew when enough was enough and when I was doing it because I was avoiding. #progress
Week Four was much of the same. Cooking big batches of lentil soup and crockpot veggie jambalaya (that, unfortunately, I over-cayenne-peppered... lesson learned!). More game nights. More being appreciative of things rather than staying stuck in my head. Trying to tackle projects that maybe I wasn't ready for - dear god, cable management! - but I gave them a shot anyway.
I also spent a lot of cozy time in my Batman onesie. Ultimate comfy, win!
Forward movement, on a slight incline. That's all I could ask for... felt pretty good. Progress. :)
