I’ve made some improvements here. I no longer wear headphones, and I try mightily to connect, even chat with strangers. I do need to work more on maintaining presence. I love music, podcasts, etc. But I also know that these can sometimes take me out of the moment. So I’m back to silence in the morning, silence in the evenings. Hard, yet necessary for me.
I’m committed on the no-cooking rule for Sunday. I did have some short moments with hubs and bae, which I continue to work on. I find it happens when I’m tired and/or hungry. Sometimes the best you can do is forgive yourself.
