I was getting very worried I would spiral out of control like a multitude of other times and give up - give in - and get swallowed up in the vortex of self pity and indulgence. I kept trying to find those magic words that would all of a sudden lift the veil and let in the light!
Today the sun shone, I slept in until 8 AM, Raouf made delicious cinnamon pancakes and I finally got all of my alterations done on my makeshift traveling wardrobe. It was lunchtime before I knew it. I sat down to eat my delicious broccoli and fennel soup and I realized I seemed to be getting back into the groove. I walked for an hour and I talked out a lot of my stress - blah blah - over and over and over as I processed it all again and again. I am gaining perspective so I don't go and start gaining weight!
