I slept well last night. I think I got about 11 hours of sleep. I only woke once in the night and only briefly. I had some dreams, but nothing that scared me.
Tomorrow our original Christmas gifts should arrive. I’m looking forward to everyone’s reactions tomorrow night when we open them.
My all time favorite band is going to be...
It was Christmas day today. That’s a happy thought. And, it was a very pleasant day, filled with contentment.
I started work on my next major project, which will consume about 20% of my time for the next eighteen weeks. I feel good about the plans I made and the ideas I have for this go-round. Each iteration is an improvement upon the...
Our gifts were lost today. They were shipped to the wrong address and the people who received them claimed they didn’t arrive. Now, I know that’s not a happy thought, not in keeping with the purpose of this exercise. But, it becomes happy.
I wasn’t surprised strangers would keep this misdirected box of Ch...
It was a roller coaster of a day, but certainly there are happy things to report:
It’s Friday! I left work on time for change. We went to the store and just enjoyed one another’s company.
I’m sitting with my favorite cat. She’s very gentle and pleasant. Soothing.
I think I made good progress today in my healin...
I wasn’t able to do the happy thoughts list last night because my stomach required me to spend the last part of the evening in the bathroom, after I finished my healing post last night. And, although today was fairly rough, it was OK enough that I can do this exercise.
Went to a concert last night.
Finished the Christmas shoppi...
Today’s list of happy thoughts:
Enjoyed spending time with my kids this evening.
Reached an important landmark at work today.
It was warmer today than it has been.
Saw something this morning on my way to work that really made me smile. I can’t say here what it was, but sharing the story with others today was a lot of fun.
Today’s happy thoughts:
It was really beautiful here today. I wanted to spend some time outside. I should have. I should make it a priority to get sunlight an oxygen whenever possible. I do love it.
My son played a recording of his band for me. It was wonderful to listen and see how excited he is. And, there will be a concert th...
We went to see “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” today. I really enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
Before the movie I walked the dog with my son.
I made good progress on an important project today.
Picked up some Christmas presents today.
Listened to music for a good while today...
One of my coping skills is for my last activity of the day to be the creation of a list of positive things from my day. Here’s todays:
I had a good work day.
I watched a TV show I enjoyed.
I picked up a prescription, which I very much needed and will help me feel better. (I ran out a week ago. I won’t go into why it took s...
The Air Force Symphony Flash Mob at the National Air and Space Museum. I felt a deep and abiding joy watching this video because I have deep and abiding love of music:
We laughed a lot at work today. I work with a wonderfu...
About Intrepid She
This is a moderated PUBLIC blog. This blog is a therapeutic tool I am using to help me get over my fear of doctors (which is made difficult by a history of abuse by them) to learn to grieve, and ultimately to integrate my dis-integrated heart.
The content of this blog is not appropriate for children or for anyone who might be triggered by reading about sexual abuse.
To the many others walking your own version of this path, I wish you well on your journey. -Intrepid
