*Full disclosure I wrote this 3 days before I had the biggest cPTSD breakdown. I was going through so much pain and as one of my favorite tools, I used my words to help ground myself.
Jun. 17 Father’s Day
Today I feel ahead of the game. Four years out of school and I’ve spent them always ascending. Over the years a lot of thoughts have gone through my head and here are a few of the more pertinent ones:
I want to spend my life with Bryce
Wow, I’m making 85k. Holy shit.
What is my purpose?
I hate sitting behind a computer not talking to people
This IUD is NUTS
My knee is killing me
I miss the freedom of Iceland
I want to try the world
My ups and downs are super extreme and I’ve been really off and unsatisfied
End of journal entry…
Why Journaling is soooo important
Praise BE to past Calan. Now, a year later, I can reflect on some of the things that were on my mind. It’s not easy to look back at difficult times but what is pretty easy is celebrating my wins. 2019 Calan is not sitting for hours behind a computer anymore, my IUD is working for me and not against me, and I’m completely satisfied with life. What an interesting word choice for Calan 2018. Ha sounds like a yelp review. 2 stars, I’m unsatisfied with this life meal.
Peace, love, and light yall
