I've slipped up. There are things in my life that I have worked so hard on, and made so much progress on, that are a big giant mess again.
And I've ignored it as long as I can. Or not noticed. Or not cared.
But I do care. Even though it's difficult, I want to change things. I want to swim upstream because I've tasted the other waters and they were satisfying.
When you are in the flow of things and stop swimming, the tide carries you backwards. The idea is to notice before you get too far away from where you want to be. And to keep heading in the right direction.
So I'm back on track, or working to be anyway. Back to work. No more floating along wherever life takes me.
Even if I have to ask for help -- because we all need a life preserver every now and then.
