Over-eating. When I am in a better place, my survival kit is moving my body: hiking, biking, kayaking. I’ve been so down that my over-eating took me to weight heights unknown. To survive this, I keep trying on acceptance in my thoughts, “hey, this is getting you through.” My kit is expansive. I forget to use my skills way too much lately. My best skill is staying awake to moments of awe. Those seem to help me survive and cherish most. In particular in nature. A sunset that flames across the sky. A bid flying. Redwood trees.
