Tuesday Thoughts??

Happy Tuesday, feeling much better this morning. Like I posted last night, I love my therapist and so glad she really looks forward to me coming on Monday’s. She really thinks I’m just the funniest thing. So this got me to thinking, where would I be today if I hadn’t checked myself in the hospital. What would my life be like now? I just so glad that I had to hit rock bottom to realize my life still has some purpose. This morning I feel like life is worth living and God isn’t finish with me yet, I still have things to accomplish and I have to share my story with the world. Life gets hard sometimes, but most of us can and will overcome the obstacles. We just have to learn that having positive thoughts can overcome anything negative. So today I’m just so grateful I decided to live and seek help. I now know I will be able to handle the hard stuff. Like that old Proverb: Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly.  Have a great Tuesday, chat soon….

I Love Therapy Day😊👍🏾

Who said ‘therapy’ was a bad word??? Ok I’m asking that question again, because this has been the best thing that has happened for me. My therapist is super understanding and feels like an old friend, she constantly shares things with me that makes me feel so comfortable. I explained to her after group therapy, that I was having a rough morning. I explained to her how I was starting to feel some type of way about my son. She totally understood and revealed to me that she has a brother in jail right now. I was surprised, see you think just because they are therapist, they don’t have the same problems you do. She explained that it’s ok to have my feelings, because he is my only son. I still see him as the little boy I raised, that’s when she told me, he’s going to be find and my life can go on. Her brother is still locked up after 10 years and she said her mom is doing fine. There will be hard days she said, but I just have to keep praying and keep myself busy. So I left there today feeling so much better, I know it’s going to be hard. I’m just so glad I’m in better place now to be able to handle the hard stuff. She promised to be there for me just like my friends, I feel much better tonight!!! Hope Monday was awesome for you all, chat soon….
