Sitting at the counter in a diner….

11 Sep

Just pondering life while I wait patiently for my blueberry pancakes. I look around and am quite aware of my surroundings. Some older gentlemen, construction workers, a couple with an 8 week old baby. As I sit, sipping coffee (milk not cream), I find it hard to focus on the novel I am reading. Instead I am thinking about all the progress I have made. After yesterday, I realized how strong I really am! Today I was able to validate myself in my DBT class (which I’ve never been able to do) I am showing the instructor I’m using so many skills I have learned. I’m really starting to think I’ll be ok! I’ve come so far and have worked really hard!! Who says hard work doesn’t pay off? Now back to those blueberry pancakes! Yum!!

Something that I just can’t let go of….

Well, today marks a very significant day in my life. Five years ago today, I would be caught in the most traumatic event ever. This event would change my life forever! I am able to control it, other times I have no control over it. I hope and I pray that none of you have to experience PTSD. They say time heals it, but I’m not buying it!! I’ve worked so hard to be where I am today. Life is so much more enjoyable when I stick to what I have learned. I’m just trying to live a normal, happy life….If that’s possible, I think I’m almost there!
