I’m living proof that progress is not linear. I start doing the right thing and before you know it I slide back into old habits. I manage to overcome huge challenges, only to end up being overwhelmed by seemingly smaller ones. One second I’m on top of the world and the next I’m trying to hang on to the other side of it… I could beat myself up about it, and there are plenty of times when I do. But then there are plenty of times when I just let myself off the hook and focus on finding little bits of happiness here and there. Yesterday there happened to be a nice light inside the apartment, a very rare thing at anytime but especially in mid-winter. I grabbed my camera and went hunting around my place to photograph things that give me some measure of pleasure.
