Feelings come and go and they are just feelings but they can totally hijack your day, week, heck your life. Some times the future can seem so bleak that it is hard to carry on. It can feel like, "what's the use, this is just too hard and everything is just moving too slow" Does this sound familiar? I had a day like that just yesterday so that black cloud feeling is still close at hand.
The routines I have established (blog in the mornging 6-7AM) are one of the ways I manage to keep going when these strong negative feelings try to shut me down. The routines of my day are like a track I can put my self on and with a shove I am on my way. This is important for me because movement is one way out of that paralysis that wants to settle down on me in those times. If I can just manage to get going half the battle is already won.
