today, i am grateful for…

…the time and help that i received while working with my therapist. i learned a lot about myself and a lot about others. i received important tools and resources to utilize to try to remain present…and, to help to calm my spirit. emdr has been a really helpful gift, that i can do anywhere and continue on my own. the stems have been very helpful, albeit frustrating at times. i will always continue to give myself the best self-care that i can, because i am worthwhile and valuable…

…my happy, toothy-grinned, bouncy boy, buggs. he is the light in my life and the smile in my heart. he loves me whether or not i have money, dress nicely, or do everything right. he motivates me. he treats me like i am the most important person on earth. he encourages me to keep going and being my best…

…my sister and her great suggestions and motivation. she helped me to get through a rough patch this morning, by reminding me that business relationships are not friendships, and do not need to include feelings. she also motivated me to go to the social security office, to get the required business packet, to pursue driving for lyft and building my nest egg, and paying back into the system for retirement, or disability, if i cannot work again…

…the very nice, patient, and helpful woman at the social security office. she took a lot of time, answered all of my questions, and made sure that i had all of the necessary paperwork…

…all of my wonderful friends, who encourage me, support me, and motivate me. everyday, i am amazed and blessed to have all of the same friends from high school, as i have now. a lot of these friendships began in the very early 1980’s and still exist, nearly 35 years later. i am truly very fortunate…

…a place to live, a room of my own, friends to share my daily life with, use of a car, food to eat, and lots of love…

…the beautiful henderson bark park, dog park. i am glad that buggs has such a marvelous place to go to meet up with his friends and play. i am happy to see and talk to my park friends, each time i go. tobey keeps me laughing the whole time. she is a sassy, retired nurse, from the bronx, new york. tim, keeps me in the gratitude mindset. he is an intelligent, well-spoken, retired gm mechanic, from wisconsin. i am grateful for a place to be able to disappear to and just hang out, and be myself…

i am learning more about myself everyday. i am healthy and strong. i am independent and vital.

namaste.
