Day 1189: Taxing

Here’s a list of things I find taxing:

  • taxes,
  • worry,
  • cruelty,
  • fear,
  • guilt,
  • shame,
  • regret,
  • the message “Your Mac Storage is Full,”
  • trying to export photos to free up storage space and getting failure messages,
  • deleting lots of stuff and still getting the “Your Mac Storage is Full” message,
  • solutions that previously worked before not working in the moment,
  • frustration,
  • losing sight of hope,
  • insecurity,
  • disappointment,
  • impatience,
  • cognitive distortions including shoulds, mind-reading, blame, comparisons, labeling, catastrophizing, etc., and
  • the fact that it is SNOWING, SNOWING, SNOWING on APRIL 3, 2016, here and now, outside of Blogging Central.

I find it less taxing to make lists of what helps me, whenever things are taxing. Those include:

  • self-care (including nourishing food, water, and sleep)
  • remembering the saying, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, wait a minute,”
  • expressing my thoughts and feelings,
  • letting go of worry,
  • letting go of fear,
  • letting go of guilt,
  • letting go of shame,
  • faith in my own ability to solve problems,
  • remembering there are people in my life who can help me solve problems,
  • doing my best in the moment, and
  • letting go, again.

Which of these photos do you find particularly taxing or non-taxing?


I hope leaving a comment isn’t too taxing for you.

Here’s a final taxing photo for today:
