Thanks Lennon!

After my emotional meltdown yesterday, I am doing much better. I let myself grieve last night for all the past emotional issues, and spent time with my Higher Power to be comforted. It helped a lot. 

Already done this morning -- without any planning, only directed by the Holy Spirit: Woke up early around 6:15am, took supplement, sorted towels for washing later, started dishwasher, did 4 floor exercises, made tea, prepped breakfast, read Bible, meditated with HP for 45 minutes, ate breakfast, attended morning UA phone meeting, took shower, bill due dates in calendars, started laundry, put away dishes, opened windows & put on moisturizer, wrote down how long each task/segment took.
