I’m shaking it up with my blogging location, as you can see from the picture above. I just want to sit here, peppermint tea in hand, watching a little bit of “the Office” (which you can see on the TV), and blogging. I’m also Skyping with my sister with Chester sleeping like a cutie behind my head on the couch. I prop my back on the pillow, cover myself with the blanket, and have the TV on in front of me, not so much for what’s on it, but more so because of the familiar sound of a show I love so much. This is how I relax after a long day.
Well, I think I’m doing well with blogging more often. I haven’t written this many posts in a row in awhile, if ever. It feels relieving in a way that I can’t explain and it doesn’t seem quite so lonely here in this little apartment. I appreciate so much every person who stops by and leaves a bit of encouragement. Thank you so much 🙂
Today I had my 3rd therapy session. We discussed how I was doing with the hand washing. My goal was to cut down the number of times I wash my hands into half. I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t easy. Sometimes the urge to wash my hands multiple times is really strong, so I had to make a conscious effort to stop after just once or twice. The purpose is for me to see that hand washing excessively doesn’t mean that it will prevent the things I worry about. I took the effort because I want to improve myself and I am doing better. I don’t worry nearly as much when I’m washing my hands and I take a lot less time doing so. It’s good to see some progress already. Even though it’s been only 3 sessions, I can see slight changes toward the better already. If nothing else, then it’s a great opportunity for me to talk extensively about my issues with someone who is knowledgable and understanding.
Just two more days in the week and then it’s the weekend again 🙂 I know they happen every week, but the weekends are pretty awesome.
Thanks for reading!
