I never properly responded to, nor thanked you for your comments on my post Worry, about my daughter anonymous reporting her best friend and mom’s behavior. Thank you for your insight and your words. They were very validating and grounding. When I can find the right words I will respond. I’ll also give an update soon.
On a non-related note, this past hour I’ve typed up and deleted multiple times what’s been consuming my thoughts as of late. There is nothing scandalous nor shameful about these thoughts, yet I realize they are just for me at the moment.
On a related note, my therapist says I’m too much in “doing” mind. That is, my mind is too much in problem-solving mode and I’m not spending any time just “being.” She says in the past I’ve been very avoidant but now she’s worried I’m swinging the other way and I’m going to burn myself out.
In essence, I need to find ways to enjoy my life. Stop and smell the flowers.
I need to get back into reading. I was reading my kids’ fantasy dragon series until my son didn’t want to discuss it with me anymore. It’s been over a month since I read a book. Prior to that I was reading classic literature. I like reading things that have some sort of importance or cultural relevance.
Do you have a suggestion for what I should read next? What are you reading?
What have you been watching? Listening to? Doing?
Overall, what has been occupying and engaging you?
