...to change her mind.
Sometimes getting through is all we can hope for. I've essentially abandoned self improvement in the interest of self preservation for the last month or so.
I thought of my entire residency as a "self-preservation" period. I'm really impressed you are striving so hard at all. I'm glad you're enjoying your vacation, I'm craving some deep dish pizza right now.
Self-improvement is over-rated :) Hope things calm down soon.
I think the syllabus says that caring enough to keep track gives you enough points for a D minus... Have some pizza.
I am great at setting intentions. Following through? Not so much.I just started reading Gretchen Rubin's Happier at Home and it's set a fire under me to start again, again. Then I read your post and Solitary Diner's comment to prioritize self-preservation over self-improvement and I'm thinking twice...Here's to a happy and healthy 4th quarter for all of us.
I third (?) the call for self preservation. A most noble thought.
Ana -- You don't have to publish this, of course, but are you doing ok? I saw your comment over at MiM and thought you might need someone to talk to. I'm happy to email or talk if you want. Or go for a run... (would that be weird? I would be slow.). Let me know.
