    Working on this motto!

    Moving forward doesn't mean you have to push yourself to do anything you're not ready for, it just means that you aim for a forward approach.
    It doesn't matter if you move slow so long as you keep moving.
    Just like how all little ones learn how to walk, one step at a time, we too must take that approach sometimes-especially when life gets complicated or extra hard.

    You Are doing a Great job! 👍 Keep moving forward ❤️
    Deep breathes, You CAN Do This!!

    We were suppose to get a new pup tomorrow but the seller put it on pause since her sister died last month.

    She decided to wait four days until she would reschedule again.
    I had previously taken off two weeks so that I could spend them with the new puppy instead of worrying about appointments and leaving her home alone. So I told my parents that I was going to cancel my psych appointment. And then my mom turns around and says that if I cancel the psych appointment that I'm not getting a dog. Please someone verify that my feelings that this is a huge breach of trust is legitimate.

    It has taken me 10 years to be fully ready to go to a psychiatrist where I would commit to fully telling them everything and not holding back. And now with my mom forcing me it creates all sorts of problems. How can I ever trust them again? How can I trust them that if I really want something they're not going to use it to get what they want to? And then they say that they're doing this out of love because they want what's best for me! And now my anxiety which was stirred up because of the adoption being put on hold is now in a huge frenzy even though they said that they are trying to make it better and it's all for me.

    I hate when the people you most count on turn around and use everything to get you to do what they want.

    Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is such a beautiful and cleansing gift to give, not necessarily because the other person deserves it, but because YOU do. Will anyone try?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    Distraction through Art

    I took up drawing and painting when I was forced to retire due to CRPS. It is a great way to distract myself. Any other Warrior Artists out there?? Show me some of your work! #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #painwarrior #ArtTherapy

    Here is your challenge for the day! How many can you do? Are any particularly hard? If you can do all of them, will you keep this practice up for the week?

    ❤️❤️❤️ I always have had bad health and painful things added but never solved and taken away.

    But I find rest-Peace- in Christ. He never turns me away and always knows everything about me and my struggles in exactly that moment. He won't make us fight on alone without some relief. Even if that relief is like mine and never takes away the problem. But He Always gives me strength and endurance to carry one.

    How to build some peace in your life

    How to build some peace in your life. Mindfulness is to be mindful of your thoughts. When you watch them and don't engage or fight, a space between you and them appears and creates peace. Has anyone done this?

    Which one is meant for you?

    Top: Don't ever allow yourself to forget how incredibly special you are, even for a single second. Without you, the world would not be as magnificent.

    Left: Whatever you did today is enough.
    Whatever you felt today is valid.
    Whatever you thought today isn't to be judged.
    Repeat the above each day.

    Right: We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.

    Bottom: At the end of the day darling, you are enough. You always have been. ❤️
