The night of the bench: learning from 2016

The night of the bench: learning from 2016

I like New Year’s resolutions post mostly because I’m big on reflecting. A friend noted that I’m big on anniversaries; my birthday (July 1) and New Year’s Day (January 1) fall exactly six months away from each other, so I find they’re good times to look back, plan and learn.

This year was weird.

Doing what’s “objectively correct” for you

Doing what’s “objectively correct” for you

So today I had a pretty good day of therapy, and it contextualized a couple things for me.

For the last little while I’ve been focusing on “doing nothing” to various success. The idea, though, was trusting a process that my brain was going to be able to fix some things emotionally in the meantime, letting me get back to the “big life stuff” of a career, direction and purpose eventually.
