On the gloomy days when I feel like I am falling backwards and not making progress; Sterling always reminds me to keep walking. He is always excited to go for a walk and see the world, even if it is gloomy out. He pulls me along and reminds me how nice it is to take a deep breath!
Question to consider: When you want to hide in a cocoon from the world, what inspires you to get out in the world? Right now I just can't wait for the weekend, so I am channeling that energy into getting chores done (at least the ones I have control over).
