Today is such a special day in so many aspects!
Happy Chinese/Lunar New Year to everyone who celebrates! It’s the year of the Tiger!
Imbolc Blessings To You.
February has a lot of other events happening as well. My SO won’t brag, but he’s got a birthday this month. Creeping up in his mid-30’s now! Followed by a Daddy Daughter dance a few days later.
And we can’t forget that lovely Hallmark holiday, Valentine’s Day. I want to say I’m looking forward to the day after with half-priced chocolate, but we -are- dieting. So it’s not likely to happen. That’s fine… it’s fine. I don’t need chocolate.
My father’s birthday is a few days after Valentine’s Day and I’m still feeling very raw about that. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing for that. I miss him so much. I thought I’d be ready to process my grief concerning that, but that’s still slow going.
February will also be a full month without any kind of mental health care. My therapist and I decided that I was doing really good this last session. (End of January.) So I’ve got an appointment set for the beginning of March. I have, always have, the option of calling in for an emergency therapy session should I need it. We’ve worked on the plan that I’ll sit with any distress for twenty-four hours before actively reaching out. That way I can work on my stress tolerance as well as my own problem-solving skills. I dread it, yet know it’s probably a good thing.
Also, it’s a Leap Year, so we get an extra day this month. Huzzah! Nothing spectacular for me to recap or talk about. It feels like it’s so much later in the year than the second month. Thanks for stopping in today! Let’s make this a good month.
