Post It Notes of Sanity

9:39 AM Edit This 7 Comments »
It's getting better. I've made it through the roughest patch I think. Even with more fuel to the fire on Saturday night. It has come to my attention through the wiles of The Universe that I no longer need to define myself in certain ways. And it will take some rearrangements in the brain in order for me to re-define who I am. This is just another whole level of surrender in this process of recovery. Usually I fight it. I hold onto the familiar for dear life, as IF my life depended on it. But this time? It's clear what I need to let go.

I don't know how to do it. I have no idea how this will pan out for me. I have no clue what it means for my future sanity. But I daresay it is a step in a forward direction concerning this New Life of mine. And I'm not afraid. Isn't that interesting? I'm not afraid. I don't want to shout it yet. But I'm quietly announcing to myself and The Universe that whatever is coming is going to be okay. If not good.

And a lot of it has to do with the wisdom given me by Melissa Lion last week. And that wisdom was translated onto a sticky note that I stare at all day long. Because it's true. You WILL indeed, survive this next minute. Every minute.

I was thinking that very thing on my way to work in the pouring rain. You will survive this next minute.

That Post It says it all.

I'm interested to see what new and exciting things the universe has for you - all good, of course. :)

Yes, it's going to be OK. And that's a great message. I've never broken anything down past today, but sometimes you need the very small increments. I'm going to remember that next time. Hugs to you, Kate.

Strangely enough I have arrived in a very similar place. I'm having to let of pieces of me that I have created to "survive" so that I can now....survive. I'm not afraid either, which is weird when your suffering from anxiety, but I know I have to let of something to start something new now, something better.

Sweet. I have lived by that post-it note and it got me through. Keep breathing!

Wise words from Melissa Lion. You WILL survive this next minute and you WILL survive whatever the Universe throws at you. :-)
