I can't help but feel that 2010 is going to be a seminal year in my life in which I deal with many of my issues. I'm so glad I found NAPs because I really think these will help me and provide a way for me to address these blocks without me having to "force" them out of my consciousness.
Had an exhausting day today. I know it's because I was running around taking care of business! (Which is so non-procrastinator behavior! Yay!) Now I'm giving myself permission this evening to just relax.
I'm also more disciplined with my leisure activities. I took a book I really wanted to read out of the library, and while often I often succumb to the temptation to just read the whole book in one or two nights and neglect other things in my life for that period, I am reading only a chapter or two a day. It doesn't feel difficult, like I am depriving myself, either. It's natural--read a chapter, put the book down and do something else. And I can absorb the content better that way anyway.
I also (think) I solved a problem I would normally have just bitched about and worried about tackling because I would have been too scared to try anything for fear whatever I tried wouldn't work. We'll see what happens. I know that in the event my actions don't solve it, I'll just have to move on to something else. I'm feeling pretty good about my take-charge self lately!
