Day one went well. That’s not unusual. The novelty of starting something has a certain momentum. After a little success is when you get all relaxed and it’s like… ‘Bring me frothy drinks and sing my praises, bitches, for I doth rocketh.’

I. Barbara Kingsolver says in one of her essays (from High Tide in Tucson) that surviving, or coming back to life after her divorce was a matter of being grateful for one little thing after another. This is highly paraphrased, I’m trying to remember. She looked at the world around her, and it was a flower, a sunset, a song, a smile, these small graces brought her back to life. *Gratitude*… the perspective of being grateful- seeking out the good.
A friend told me that basic same thing, yesterday. To keep looking for the light. Robin, over at Bountiful Healing consistently lists those things she is grateful for. Looking for the blessings in each day can very much change your attitude- which is kind of helpful when you’re trying to change your wiring.
II. This is my own program, so I’m going to write my own motivational literature. That might be a trial and error thing, so if you’re looking in, I don’t want any crap about the slogans. Some of them are likely designed specifically to be nauseating. That’s the author’s perogative.
This is my journey, I do not take it lightly.
