I had my monthly Larry appointment today. At my April appointment, Larry graded my Apollo 13 homework assignment he had given me after I spent my March appointment with him in serious meltdown mode tears about life in general. After I received my A++, Larry gave me another assignment, which was due today. My assignment was to show some kind of scale that represented things I COULD do on a 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% energy day.
This assignment was meant to help me reframe my thoughts. So instead of getting upset and saying something like, ”Oh my goodness, it’s a 25% energy day and I can’t dust the house,” I could instead look at it as, “It may be a 25% energy day but I CAN do a load of laundry, some floor exercises, and post on my blog.”
