Today was very productive. I recently started a new job at a local hospital. I am so excited about this new direction in my career path. I can honestly say that even though I have been swamped with new training modules and getting used to a new charting system, I am LOVING EVERY MINUTE!!! I have been so focused on this positive new aspect of my life, I haven't had the time to worry about whether or not my rapist will be released any time soon. I don't really care if they do. I guess what they say is true: the best revenge is knowing that he did NOT destroy my life. He may have knocked me down, but he damn sure CAN'T knock me out!!!
I am feeling very positive today, which is something I haven't felt in a while. I still have my day to day struggles (like blaming myself and questioning how I survived his madness), but I hadn't smiled in a while...until now. It feels pretty good. I want more days like today.
