3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
The loud blast of a text ringtone awoke me at 04:20, and after a wee, thirst and missus snoring loudly, I was unable to get back to sleep. Shrugging shoulders, going with it and getting up, I can now feel the telltale signs of inadequate sleep - sore eyes and skin crawling.
My restlessness has probably been set off by a couple of minor incidents - an altercation - albeit minor - right at the end of the Weekend Job after an otherwise smooth shift, and Son informing me that he had mis-read his e-mails from both Manchester and Birmingham, and he had only got acknowledgements not invitations to auditions - having told everyone otherwise.
Though it's now well-managed, there isn't a "cure" for my issue - the tendency to overreact. I cannot control which neurons fire in response to which stimuli, only counteract them by firing other neurons. Consequently, my behaviour is generally reasonable but something like a storm goes on in my brain.
Time and space in a benign environment, which home now is, ultimately restores balance and grounds my focus.
Self acceptance of the physical and mental flaws of my character is a crucial discipline - after all, I did not choose to have these flaws, and I have willingly accepted the responsibility to manage them. I therefore have an internal peace that comes from knowing I'm doing my best with what I've got to work with.
