NaBloPoMo Day 13: A Respite Between Storms


Yesterday, I had a rough day of therapy. The therapy itself wasn’t so bad, it was the thoughts and feelings that it led me to process that were difficult. I wrote about them at length yesterday.

Tomorrow my dad will have been gone 20 years. I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about that occasion, but I’m going to write at length about them tomorrow, when it is appropriate to do so.

Today, however, is a day of mental recuperation. I’m not pushing myself to accomplish all the things today, I’m setting aside a good portion of the day to have fun and relax in between what I’m anticipating to be two rough days.

There’s likely going to be a lot of gaming, maybe a movie, some light reading, and almost certainly a nap.

And that’s okay.

I’ve been working on a project for the radio station, where I vet my music and tag it appropriately for live, explicit, or clean, in rare cases, so that I’ll know when music needs a disclaimer just by looking at it in our broadcasting software. I think I’m going to take today off of that project.

And that’s okay too.

I’m still going to do the self-care things that I need to do, but as far as being a productivity machine today? Nah, not so much.

To be honest, I’m still processing yesterday, and will likely be doing so for some time.

Enough writing. Time to relax and unwind.
