It's inevitable that the moment of discouragement comes, particularly for someone like me whose mind is often a maelstrom of feelings. Most of the time I have the tempest contained, but obstacles and failures sometimes knock it loose a bit and then I struggle.
Christmas is always difficult. Add in unpacking a house, mild disagreements on how to organize and what new furniture we need (which currently means a stalemate and an office/dining room that looks awful and depressing), kids fighting, a failed vacation, technical difficulties and other seemingly endless demands on my time, and I have reached a point of discourage.
How do you rally yourself? I've given up several unhealthy self-comforts lately, so I need ideas.
