I was just talking to a buddy recently who said, “When do you think things will calm down?” In terms of my personal life, in the last few years, I’ve coped with Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, mind numbing fatigue, had several surgeries, lost my best friend, lived through the quarantine and had instability in my living circumstances. I’m not sure when things will calm down.

There always seems to be something stressful going on. My self-defeating internal dialogue is whining: “why attempt to arrange anything if your schedule will be ruined every other day?” Why chase my tail when all I want is comfort food after a long tumultuous day?”

Then, the wise me responds: “There is always a way to make a better choice”. Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”

I should listen to this person more often than I do.
