practicing staying out of shame spirals


right now, i'm having a late-starting, foggy feeling day.

foggy feeling days happen.

what doesn't need to happen (but still does, occasionally) is letting the foggy day make me question everything else (bringing up my laziness shame spiral). a foggy day is just a foggy day.

i'm tired. i may have a cold - my nose is running, my sinuses are clogged and i'm tired and that's about it. i'd assume it was allergies, but there's nothing really high right now, pollen or allergen wise.

and resting is the logical choice, whether this is allergies or a cold.

i just need to keep reminding myself, and keep practicing staying out of the shame spiral.

yes.
