Brand new groove
« on: September 05, 2016, 05:00:46 PM »
While I was on my morning run, I realized that I feel entirely differently about myself and my surroundings than I have ever felt before.  There is more of a sense of spaciousness, room to grow, and more self acceptance and positive energy than in the past.  After all of the work I have done on myself over the past 4 years, it is a glorious realization.

Recovery happens!

Long may it continue, and let us keep in mind that all emotional states are in constant flux.  But may we remain as grounded as possible and know that we will thrive no matter where we find ourselves in our healing journey.

This could be my tagline for my posts: Progress is not linear!;
Growth is never linear;
Healing is not linear.

Thinking of you all - hugs

yes to everything here.  so much wisdom and insight.  thank you.  i want a face that represents peace and serenity...but my daughter and i agreed maybe that's everything.  it's on the inside, not out, so hard to draw...wishing you all a great day and thanks again.

Do you think it is the exercise that is contributing to your healing C ?
I find I am so much more "together" after a good long walk - particularly by the sea if I can get there.

Yesterday, I had the privledge of sitting throu a two hour after-work meeting run by a woman who has all of the charm of a prison matron and who was heaping gloom and doom scenarios about the future of the Academy which I co-lead at my school.  Although I appreciate that we have much work to do to achieve real success and that things in the past have been handled poorly, I did not use this opportunity to second-guess my own competencies or come away ready to quit.  I attribute this resiliency entirely to my cptsd recovery efforts. 

Still a "work in progress" but not going backwards (and yes, I realize that healing is not linear as has often been mentioned).
