I must admit that I’ve tried to institute too many new habits at once. I’m not good at gradual anything, though. I really have very little patience in too many ways to count them. I always find it funny when people say, “Oh, I don’t have the patience for cross-stitch!” because I don’t consider that to require any patience at all.
Anyway, I need to step back, list out and prioritize the changes I want, then try one at a time. Seriously. Long enough for each change to become a habit before starting the next. And I need to admit that being back in class, and taking a full load of classes, is enough of a change in and of itself that it needs a few weeks to gel before I make any other changes.
No magic wands available, dammit.
