Today is a big day for my upcoming book "Life After Lust: Stories & Strategies for Sex & Pornography Addiction Recovery." Today is the last day I can submit the final manuscript to my editor because come January 1st she is going on vacation. January 1st is also the day I told my potential book endorsers that I would send them the manuscript, so this deadline is very important.

So, why do I want to destroy my computer? The reason why my frustration is mounting is that for some reason the document I am using has a lag time of about 10 seconds, where I have to wait every time I make a minor change. Why is my computer doing this, you might ask? I think it is because it is tracking all of the changes and can't handle what I'm asking it to do. Regardless of why, I am feeling the pressure of my deadline and every time my word processor makes me wait several seconds my anxiety grows. And, of course, destroying my computer is not an option...for obvious reasons.

So, my plan is to vent to you now then start practicing the things I am writing about - patience, consistency, prayer, and self-compassion. I trust that this project will be done when it needs to be done.

Thanks for listening.
