1. I was kind by listening to my friend talk, with no interruptions and judgments
2. I got out of bed, when I wasn’t in the best place this morning, and told myself to be brave and get through the day
3. I want to communicate better with people I am close to.
What a great idea! We could all use this extra dose of motivation, tbh
1) I was kind by offering to do something for my grams when I noticed she needed the help; usually I would wait patiently until she ASKED or said so, but this morning I offered to take the load for her. She was shocked.
2) I was brave, I think, by looking my depression in the face and picking up my pad + pencil and drawing for the sake of drawing. I also got some writing done. I know I’m rusty because it’s been kicking my ass and I haven’t kept up with it, but I felt good after!
3) I feel, like Torry, I can definitely be more vocal. Especially with people I know I can trust won’t turn me out.
1. Today I was kind to MYSELF by checking all my emails and following up on them 🙂
2. I was brave by coming to work, even though I REALLY wanted to stay home and hang out with Willow
3. I want to work on being more efficient with my time, and work on procrastinating on things I am dreading
1. Today I was kind to myself by explaining that I needed extra support at work today and feeling confident enough in myself to ask for it from those around me.
2. I don’t know if this counts, but I was brave YESTERDAY by going to therapy (even though I didn’t want to and knew what was coming) and hearing out my therapist on an issue I’ve been facing for a very long time, hearing her out on how to proceed in my recovery process.
3. I want to work on my anxiety and this somehow casual sense of fear I have facing simple tasks; I don’t like that it has such a grasp on me.
