“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. ”
~Joseph Campbell (Goodreads)
Okay, so I’ve been slacking for a couple of weeks. I did a few runs, but have mostly done nothing. Tomorrow though I am restarting the HH 10K program. Refocused & back to good! But even with the slacking I have noticed lately in other activities I’ve been getting up to, I am stronger & more flexible. I’m quite impressed with myself.
My plan for the week is:
30min cross training
I may push Saturday’s run back to Sunday depending on our plans for the day.
On the romance front, our relationship has become official. It is moving along faster than I had anticipated, but I like it. I’m 37 & he’s 40, so I guess we’ve both been there, done that, & know what we want.
My birthday is next week, & he’s already talking about doing something, so I have decided to tell him tonight about being bipolar & on disability. I’m nervous. It certainly won’t be an easy conversation, but if we are going to pursue an honest relationship, he needs to know the truth. He deserves the option to continue or not, & the sooner he knows the truth the better. I have talked about my anxiety & having been depressed for a really long time. Also, I said something yesterday & he asked me if I was OCD, so I came told him about my OCD tendencies & explained the difference between that & actual OCD. (The diff? I have things I have to do or I become very uncomfortable, mentally & physically. However, I do not believe there any consequences to not doing those things beyond just be being bothered.)
I saw my regular doctor Friday & she was very happy to hear I am seeing someone. It’s nice to know me dating is that exciting even to my healthcare professionals. I sent a pic of us together to a friend I had mentioned I was dating too, but hadn’t told how serious things had gotten. His first reaction was to ask who it was, & when I told him it was my new boyfriend he responded, “Your what? Did you order him from overseas?”
And ooh, I got a rose Friday night just for being special. ❤
