Feeling a mix of disappointment and determination.

Went back to Jenny Craig today and met with my counselor there, whom I haven't seen in a few months. I didn't go there for a long time because I was broke, but now I'm realizing it actually saves me money to buy their food (and most of it's really tasty and good!), so what was I thinking? Anyway, I weighed in and was very disappointed to learn that I gained back 15 lbs over the summer. I have my week's supply now, have to go and buy some fruit and yogurt, and get back on track.

Back on track with my eating, back on track with school, back on track with money, back on track with my love life. It's all about starting over for me!!! I need for find a way to stay excited and not get discouraged.

Feeling a bit off.

I can`t really describe it. Happy with those close to me, but sick of people`s shit, elsewhere. *shrug* It happens.

You can really feel the positive energy in this post! Keep your pretty chin up and trust that people are wishing the best for you. Good to hear!

After a major breakdown last night, realized I should start following my own advice. Made a conscious decision to work on not being a doormat. Finally realized that I was making sacrifices that no one asked me to make and was making my family just as miserable as I was. Thank goodness for friends who ask the tough questions...and pay enough attention to catch me through my false cheerfulness. (I was trying to fake it till I made it...I guess it wasn't working lol) Felt better all day, even knowing I have a lot of hard work to do. ^.^

Feeling like I let my whole family down, and the worst part is that I was told I failed my test on purpose. I am such a retarded person for even attempting to be a massage therapist.

NO your not! Those tests are can be tricky, you are not the first to have to take it more than once and won't be the last. Better luck on the next one!

Anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology are hard subjects, and I'm sure the test included questions about business ethics and such. LT, use this as a learning experience. Are you able to get the results so you can find out where your weak areas are? If so, review it and study again. See if you can find more study materials that can help you, meet with other massage students for a study group, and see if a working therapist will mentor you. Everyone learns differently and responds to the pressure of test-taking differently. Take your time until you feel confident in all areas before re-taking the test.

Feeling a bit lost, but not entirely in a bad way?

Am taking a bit of a "sacred pause" as Tara Brach calls it in Radical self-acceptance.

Have been letting go of actions and behaviors I use as shields to try to protect myself, and am just sitting a bit in the uncomfortableness, feeling the feelings and existing for a while. Not trying to fix anything, not trying to be a better person. Just being me.

It's odd. And scary. And freeing. Did I mention odd?

Is it possible that I can just be me without thinking about everything and still have people care about me? Interesting thoughts...

Feeling pretty good, not in a ton of pain, had some special time with my wife, now chatting away with the girlfriend. The weather is nice, got dinner figured out, so I don't have to go back out(I have anxiety/agorophobia so getting out is a big deal) Just taking life as it comes.
