I feel another manic stage is starting. I hope I may stay in control and harness it to get things accomplished and not to get lost in the weeds of a thousand new projects. They say knowing is half the battle, but I don’t always feel that way. Though it is important to avoid the blame shame game, and just realize that my manic nature is just a part of who I am, and try to learn tricks to help me direct and use it, and not allow myself to spin out of control. Knowing I have the issue and learning tricks to avoid poor choice triggers is a start. Staying present and making choices, as opposed to allowing the preprogrammed response of my monkey mind, is the next step. As I learn and grow and learn good habits, I reap the reward of discipline and consistancy.
