Whisper Posted March 20 Report Share Posted March 20 I'm feeling better than I have in a long while. Work has lightened up some with the new manager. My Narcolepsy doctor added an extra medication that seems to be helping a lot. For the first time in probably the better part of a year, I don't feel completely burned out. I feel like I can finally start making some real progress right now. Today, I made a list of all the things I really should be doing if I want to be a healthy/ functional adult. They're all fairly small, modest goals and I honestly feel like all of them should be achievable.

But most of it doesn't happen with any consistency, and while I might manage a day or two of doing most of them, experience shows that I won't stick with them. Instead, I'm going to make a goal to look at my goals every day, commit to keeping up with 4 of them that I'm already fairly consistent on, and add just two little things to establish. If this works well, I'll try adding a couple more next challenge, until I've got myself a solid set of healthy daily habits.

We are prodigals come home; fully seen and deeply loved. Put together enough small wins over a long enough period of time, and you’ll find yourself in high level gear fighting dragons before you know it.
