Stop, start, stop, start, stop, start……
I don’t know how many times I have said this…..
But, I need to get back into my craft and exercise…
It feels like I am constantly stopping and starting with things I need to be doing, as the pain of life & PTSD – interferes with my capacity to keep self care going long term.
I fell apart a few months ago, and I am still trying to deal with that, and the first things that went out the window, were self care like hobbies and exercise…
My only need was survival and doing what I needed to do for my children. My capacity drops to do normal things, and then I need to re-start those things again.
But, the good thing, is I do start them again and I keep trying. I get over the crash, and pick myself up and force myself to address self care and things I know I need to do.
But it is like a continual stop and start. But, hey….as long as WE always get back to start!
Stop, start, stop, start, stop, start, stop, START….
Is always better than stop, start, STOP.
