I am doing much better today. Last night was rough, but I believe it was a combination of fatigue, being in a new environment, and forgetting to take my medication on Wednesday. Oops.
I have surprised myself at how many formerly "contaminated" items I've been able to touch in the hotel room. Also, many times in the past I would buy travel size toiletries to take with me on trips, so that I could throw them out and not have to bring them home. This time, I brought items that I will not throw away, including all of my makeup. The best part is that I've come so far, that the obsessions about my makeup being dirty did not really concern me. I'm choosing to ignore them.
The conference is going really well. I'm learning some wonderful new information. Not only that, but I bought five new books and I can't wait to get started on them. I'll be sure to let you know about any especially helpful books.
I hope you are all having a wonderful day too. God bless!
Why "71º & Sunny?"
I consider 71º to be the perfect temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. I also love perfect sunny days. The vast majority of days are not 71º & Sunny and yet, all days were created by God's hand and they are still gifts, even if they don't fit my ridiculous definition of perfection. My struggle with OCD has at times imprisoned me in an impossible attempt to achieve perfection. I'm now learning to love all kinds of days that don't even come close to 71º & Sunny.
Please leave me a comment below. I really want to know what you are thinking!
