Trying to get off the emotional roller coaster

Day 113/ 365

I missed posting these past few days. Clearly it’s not a wise choice – taking out time to consistently blog keeps me better emotionally. I’ve had a crazy emotional weekend – truly deviated from everything I was working on… but I don’t want it to break me. I was able to pick myself back up and try again.

I wrote on this blog a long while back: “I know for certain that my mind and emotions can (sometimes) be scarier than the scariest rollercoasters. The many places my mind and emotions are able to go to within a minute is unbelievable and feels like uncontrollable” – and that’s the kind of ride I took myself on this past weekend. Let’s hope that this past weekend was the last of my emotional roller coaster ride. I’ve gotten so much better at managing my emotions – all I gotta do is do the work.

I remember when I went for a counselling session a couple weeks ago and told the counsellor my intentions for my life – she was SO proud of me and she said she honestly see’s a tremendous amount of growth in me since the last time she saw me (which was about 10-12 days earlier than that day). And that day, she told me something along the lines of: I like the journey you are on. I am proud of you. It’s going to be a lot of WORK but it is so worth it so do the work. That’s what I am reminding myself again: to not forget the commitment that I made to myself!! Let’s try again 🙂
