Today, Wednesday, November 8, 2017, I am grateful for having overcome my deeply rooted fears that have kept me from being vocal about the monstrous child abuse I endured at the hands of my mother and two older sisters. Over the years, I have worked the hardest on healing the issues that have fueled my Clinical Depression and my PTSD, even though I did not know I had PTSD. I addressed the symptoms that bothered me the most.
I have seen time and time again the happiness and relief I feel once I have gotten those problems out of my head for good. Once I faced those nasty issues head on, they were acknowledged and lost their power over me. I kicked them ALL to the curb! I feel a genuine happiness and self-confidence that no drug, alcohol or any other addiction could give me. And, those feelings will be with me every day of my life.
I will launch my fundraising campaign one week from tomorrow. That day is my ten year sobriety anniversary. I am a little anxious but my excitement is growing!
What are you grateful for today? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!
