I have to say it has been a very positive week. I’ve been busting my rear to maintain a positive outlook on life and to be vigilant in practicing my mindful activities.
This afternoon I received a random text from My Wife, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the peace we’ve had this last week and more.
It’s the small things in life that make it worth living. A random praise here or an affirmation there. Things I do for myself everyday, but when it comes from someone else, far, far more powerful and much more meaningful.
I put a self-imposed ultimatum upon myself at the end of last month (September). If I were to see no improvement by the end of Rocktober, I would remove myself from my family. That meant moving away and staying away; from everyone. My plan was to move out of state so I couldn’t mess with anyone anymore. THAT plan looks to be moving to File 13.
Than You God!!!
THAT was a plan I did NOT want to implement. Who knows what life would have held for me should that have gone forth?
Thankfully a few things were shown to me. I received a bit of direction and assistance that was unbelievably constructive and beneficial. From my therapist, blog commenters, a tweet here and there and a “chance” encounter with some kid I mentor at school. Funny how mentoring someone probably teaches you more than the person you mentor.
Being a former baseball coach (read: superstitious), I won’t fully describe my feelings concerning the past week. Just know I’m exceedingly pleased with the progress of the past week.
