TOP TEN TUESDAY: Anxious and Alert

It’s funny how much things can change in the span of a week.

My mood for the past few days has been good, while anxious. Strange, I think. There are a lot of new things happening and I am excited if a little worried. In any case, I’m ready to share some favourites.

Song. I have not been able to stop listening to Raised by a Good Time by Steven Lee Olsen. I first heard it months ago and loved it but lately it’s my repeated song.

Therapy Topic. Like I said yesterday, I always end up talking about things that I don’t realize are on my mind. Lately the thing I’ve discovered about myself is my fear of being disliked, which my therapist thinks had a lot to do with my eating disorder.

Anticipation. In less than a week, my family and I will be trekking to Nashville Tennessee! I’m pretty sure it’s gonna feel like home.

My sisters and I always make a music plan for road trips. This one will be 11 hours, so we'll have to really be on top of CDs and play lists!

Book. I haven’t had much time to read, but I did finally start An Abundance of Katherines. As love losing myself in John Green’s unmistakable writing style.

Great book and pretty oatmeal.

Bible Passage. “He knows the burning desires of your heart.” Sometimes we think we want all of these things, materials, stuff, less boredom, more time, better people. Only God knows what we really want and need. Pray for him to lead you there.

TV Show. Orange is the New Black honestly keeps getting better. I’m writing this post whole eating oatmeal and watching Season 2 Ep 8. I sound like a really predicbIMG_20150619_113803table person, wow.

Food. Again, I’m trying to eat what I want to eat, which is sometimes so painfully difficult. Lately that has led to lots of bananas, again suggesting that I haven’t been eating enough carbs.

At Home Activity. Writing! My goal for the summer is to completely finish and “publish” the novel I’ve been working on for years and start the new one I have so many ideas for.

Negative Energy. Over thinking! I think it’s something that all of us suffer from, but I’ve been allowing guilt and dislike to well up inside me more than I care to admit. I’m turning this around!

Rite of Passage. I had my final piano lesson a little bit ago and it’s only now sinking in what a change that will be! I’ve been with my teacher for seven years and know that piano is something I don’t want to stop playing.

I’m in a bit of confused state, but as always, writing is amazingly therapeutic. I’m off for lunch and shopping with a friend who I know will cheer me up! Have a fantastic Tuesday.
