I'm in Florida...
It's been so healing, externally and internally.
I've been taking time each day to think about my needs. I've about gotten together another small list to add to my original. I noted that it's hard for me to identify what MY needs are outside of food, air, water.... bad sign.
So, I started working on creating that list.
During this trip, I've been working on using the time alone to consider it more in depth.
I'm also working on figuring out what steps are necessary to start meeting those needs in a manner that is still loving and supportive of my family. Because of course I DO love all of them and do want to continue being supportive of their needs.
I just don't want to do it at my expense anymore..
In no particular order, some things on my mind:
1. I think I'm going to take French.
2. I'm going to schedule one night a week that I sleep alone, totally alone, with no "wake up call" in the morning.
3. I'm going to go see the college counselor and talk to them about how to go about getting back into school and on track for getting my degree. (I already arranged a babysitter for that appointment).
