    February 3 

    It is Groundhog Day. I love the movie. I thought about what day would I want to live over and over again. Then I thought that what if I am living each day over and over again. I keep distancing myself from people. I keep creating conflict. I continue to stay in school. I always manage to destroy every great romance I have. I keep moving from place to place. I even wear the same clothes, same shoes complete with same hair style.

    My existence IS Groundhog Day. My life will be forever stuck on the repeat button until I finally get it right. But I don’t know what ‘right’ is. When will I have that Bill Murray a-ha moment and begin enjoying life for what it is? All I know is that I admit my pattern and I don’t know how to get to the third of February.

      Wasn’t it you who put me on to ‘It is always now’ by Sam Harris — see it on you tube. If it was – look at it again, if it wasn’t then look at it! It helps ground-hog-day-syndrome.

        yes. it was me. there are times when i also embrace my sadness. i give it its due. to deny it exists, only makes it stronger. so i shine a light on it and try to name it. i am myself again. living in the now. i am very moved you reached out to me. very moved. thank you…
