Starting a New Routine
Thursday, October 09, 2014
This week I began a new job. I went from full-time to part-time for some important reasons. Most of all, I wanted out of the field in which I was working. Job Coaching in an organization that was specifically serving people with mental health and substance abuse issues was draining my ability to be empathetic and caring. I didn't have much left for me. I began to cave in, isolate, eat more than needed, and stopped having energy to get up and move or work on things I enjoyed.
Now I want to start making amends to myself for letting my body, mind and spirit suffer. I want to start moving my body, eating well, being with friends and family and go back to church. I hope that I can give myself slack while I do this a little at a time.
