Excerpts from email conversation with Pr. Lisa about getting together for lunch next week:
Lisa: Hope your week is going well.

me: Significantly less exhausted since [...] last Friday -- which means I now have the brain space to fret (and other less negative verbs) about stuff that's more directly about me.

Lisa: Encouragement winging your way to stick with those less negative verbs for "self-care!!" ;->

me: :P Stuff that is clearly "self-care" I'm good with, it's the "evaluating other relationships in my life, thinking about where I want to direct my time/energy, etc." stuff that's harder (I've been grouping this all under the umbrella "vocational discernment," which feels a little bit misleading, but I remind myself that "vocation" means Call, and trufax it is a lot of discernment about what/where I am Called).
