#Prayer #works !!! #ThankYou

To all who read my post yesterday, I can report, at 6:46PM, my doctor’s letter arrived! Wow! My ability to share the situation with you all truly helped me, immensely. Thank you, #TheMighty folks, for your support and prayers.❤️

In all honesty, after sharing on this site while in the midst of the storm, I did not plummet into a depression. Thankfully, I did not obsessively ruminate on the situation. Instead, I prayed and I believe the Lord showed me that I did everything I could do and now I can simply rest.

The letter has been submitted to my company. Now I will simply face today and deal with the results from the letter when they arrive. As briefly mentioned yesterday, I can no longer fill the position I once held at my workplace due to my TBI. So, as I realized yesterday, I can only do what I am able to do and that is to simply send the company the letter. I will now let the Lord help me walk through the next step…only…when it appears.😉!!!

This medical leave’s most important lesson learned: do not operate in a state of anxiety. Nearly everyday I had this thought float through my mind, especially as I prayed about things I had to do of face: take the anxiety out of it.

Thank you all!❤️

#Insomnia or Awake After Enjoying The Day? #Perspective Matters ❤️

Wow! What a day! I really had fun today, well, yesterday. I went outdoors and enjoyed a day of exploring my local area! This has been a hard task during the past six months. But????? Why I am still awake at 4:00AM? I don’t have a clue. But once again, no worries, I am simply enjoying this quiet time of the day. And I think it is because I am finally embracing my medical leave because of this breakthrough.

Two days ago, I woke and my mind was flipping thoughts like crazy! I tried to pray but my thoughts kept shifting; this is my new norm I often experience after sustaining my fifth concussion a year ago. But this time, as my thoughts flipped from one thing to the other, I had a thought: write each of your thoughts down. So I did. And within five minutes, I had recorded nearly twenty thoughts!!! And after writing every one my thoughts and feelings, which lasted twenty minutes, I was exhausted but….RELIEVED!!! 😁

So, I feel as if a new me has emerged from that moment on! The multiple thoughts stemmed from me viewing other’s lives on social media sites. But those thoughts faded after I jotted them down, in real time. Why? Because I realized, once I wrote down each anxious thought, how those thoughts and feelings were all based on comparisons: me comparing my life to posted photos of others, which are really my assumptions of other people’s lives. And those comparisons and assumptions have led me into a maze of fractured emotional thoughts AND anxiety.

Therefore, shortly after listing those many thoughts, I started enjoying my day. And now, after today’s fun activities, I am still awake because I am not emotionally overwhelmed from wasting time lamenting over my real life compared to posted snapshots of other people’s lives. Remember, those comparisons and assumptions are based on ONE SECOND of a person’s life captured by a camera.😉! But most importantly, those comparisons and assumptions are deceiving and very deceptive.

So, I will now address such thinking, instantly, before succumbing to the negative emotions that accompany my deceptive assumptions and comparisons. We are not on this earth to live like others. No! Instead, we are here to be our #unique selves impacting lives we encounter with our special personalities, skills, and talents.❤️
