New Day

I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that things are much better this morning.  I’m determined to keep calm today.  I re-read my post from earlier this morning and yes, I want things to change in 2015 but I am the one who has to make it happen.  I can’t control what anyone else says or does but I can learn to control my reaction to it.  (Or so wise people tell me.  :))

So this afternoon I choose to start over and maintain hope — while at the same time trying to formulate a plan.  And I look at this photo to make me smile.

What's on the agenda today, Bob? -says a duck.

P.S.  I did not self-harm last night.   ♥

    1. I think what I’ve realized/learned (again!) is that this is going to have to be a “one day at a time” kind of thing. That it should be a one day at a time, one minute at a time, kind of thing. Maybe if I’m more present, then I can be more kind and be the person I want to be. I appreciate you so much and I echo your wishes for peace — for both of us!! ♥

        Definitely one moment at a time – life comes in no other way, despite how much we torment ourselves projecting and looking back. Yes, peace to both of us! 🙂


    1. I realized more than I thought after writing these posts. I realized part of my anger is stemming from fear — my mom is 68 and while that could still be considered youngish since people live to their 90’s, her health worries me. And I’m a part of it because of the stress I cause. I also realized how much the past is in my present and there’s a lot I’ve got to sort through if I stand a chance of being free.

      thank you for your support and friendship, Cat. I admire you so much and I wish brilliant things for both of us in the new year!!! ♥


      1. My parents are both 78 and my neighbour is 86, all have their health issues, but there’s no point overly worrying what might be when you can enjoy what is. Your awareness shows recovery and I really do hope the New Year takes you to a better place
        I’m discovering in therapy that the effects of my past are in my present. I’ve written on my blog a few times that there is something very powerful takes place within us when we relate a present problem with where it all began. It’s not the be-all and end-all of healing. Much of that is down to self-discipline… sort of retraining our mind.
