I decided today that I would start a new night time routine. So far it's sort of working.
All chores done by 9:30pm. Coffee set up, lunches made, dog walked etc. I got the lunches done in time. Oh well. Tomorrow is another night.
I must get more sleep during the week. I refuse to give up my morning meditation, so that means turning off the TV and no laptop or phone except posting here after 9:30.
(Okay, here must state an exception, since my ex-boyfriend texted me right after I wrote that last sentence. If a good-looking man messages me, I'll answer.)
I digress....I was also thinking today that it's time to start working on turning my feelings around about my ex-husband. Yes, he carries a lot of (undeserved, IMO) resentment towards me, and it shows up in weird ways. Mostly passive-aggressive bullshit that I try to ignore. But I'm going to work to get to a better-feeling place, and really focus on the things I like about him, rather than just ignore the things I don't like.
So far, I have the intent to want to do that, but I don't really want to. It feels like a lot of work to try to like someone I don't really like. However, I know I'll feel better if I can focus on the good things, and let his issues just be background noise. I don't want negativity about anyone messing with my joy.
We'll see how it goes. This should be an interesting exercise. I'll keep you posted.
