A better mood

There’s not much to say but I want to get it written down, partly to underline it, partly in for if/when it stops being true.

My mood these days seems to be a lot better than it used to be.

I’m generally in a better mood overall and, when temper (or anxiety, tension) flares up, I notice it as something I am doing, and I can lift myself out of it.

There’s no “objective” reason why my mood should be better: my work situation is still as precarious; family worries just as uncertain.

The only thing that has changed is that I’ve been doing “Christian” things long enough for some of them to start growing into habits — or not habits, better than habits, “favourites”. I don’t float around in a cloud of holiness but I pray most days, I read scripture most days, almost every day I’m on my Christian twitter and/or reading the Christian blogs I follow, when with my wife or my son I push myself to love them and attend to them.

My old habits and lusts are still around (although it’s a long time since I’ve looked at any real porn).

I feel like I’m settling in to a new home, a new way of being.
