Coming to my favorite place because I know I will get the support I need and I do need some. Today has been a little challenging. I don't really know why except to say that I feel edgy. I am proud of myself for starting day 17 of my quit and can't even believe that I have done this. I also know that I do not want to smoke. I guess I have the blahs. I think being tired is partly responsible as I could have slept all day if I didn't have things to do. I woke up late as it is, but really would have loved to give myself the day to lounge and sleep. Self-compassion is hard for me because it doesn't feel right even though I know it's necessary and important. Not just for a smoke free life, but for life in general. I can't count how many times I have sat with clients and said, "If you don't take care of yourself first how will you be able to care for others?". I should take my own counsel, but it's hard. I do need it today, so I will try not to beat myself up for having an off day and try to get to bed early. Thanks everyone.
