Tuesday and No Tacos

February 8, 2022 – I have no idea what that title is about.🤷‍♀️ Today’s 3 things? Well, I am grateful that I had some energy after school today for the first time in weeks; I am grateful for time to myself; I am grateful that I can think and make choices for myself without criticism – oh what a feeling. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude

Monday, Monday 3 things

February 7, 2022 – I am grateful to have women in in my life who celebrate my triumphs and commiserate with my struggles; I am grateful that I get another day tomorrow to do life again, God willing; I am grateful to have a job that allows me to connect with young people and hopefully make a difference in their lives, however big or small. #choosejoy #gratitude #3things

3 things after 2 days of hell.

What version of hell you ask?Reliving 20 years of emotional abuse on the witness stand over a 2 day period and knowing you would never be able to say all the things that needed to be said. 20 years you hid, denied, explained away, enabled. 20 years you thought you were crazy. So my 3 things of gratitude today are that I finally had the courage to leave; I am grateful that I truly stood up for myself for the first time in 20 years in that court room, no matter the outcome. After all, it’s the legal system not the justice system. I am grateful to finally be able to start a new chapter in my life after a divorce that took 2.5 years, to live for me, to get to know me again. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude

2-2-22 3 things

The day before it all goes down. The next 2 days I will be in a court room with my husband to cut the final threads of a 30 year trauma bond. It’s been almost a 2.5 year brutal journey. Tonight I am grateful that I spent the last 3 years learning how to turn my will over to my higher power because I truly am powerless over an alcoholic/addict. I thought I had learned that a long time ago, but I guess I forgot. Tonight I will rest well; I am grateful for the amazing people who surround me as I continue recovering from emotional and mental abuse. Tonight I will sleep well; but I am most grateful today that by dear friend, Bon Bon, did not suffer terribly through her recent bone biopsy. Tonight I will sleep well. Please pray for full remission for my dear friend. #choosejoy #gratitude #3things #moveforwardwithpurpose #justbringthetruth #iamenough

Today’s 3 things: I am grateful for the people in my life who remind me of my value and my strength when I forget; I am grateful that I am learning how to let go of things I cannot control; I am grateful to be so lucky to have two darling little angels that call me Mammaw. I spent the weekend with them and they definitely filled my love bucket. The giggles- oh the giggles. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude
