Friday Evening Ramblings

Good Evening, World!!! My therapist checked in with me before he left the office for the three day weekend. He reminded me the free music event going on this weekend at the Seattle Center. I plan on going to Folk Life on Monday with my friend from high school.

My anxiety has been acting up so I have been painting. I painted or attempted to paint another picture of Lil Gertie. I am hoping that with practicing that I could get good enough to sell some of my art.

Well I need to go and eat dinner. Have good three day weekend. Have a Happy Friday. Peace Out, World!!!

Random Thoughts

Good Evening, World!!! I came home from Art Group and Lil Gertie came running to me purring. Little did she know she was going to the veterinarian. Dr. B the vet is “impressed” on how sweet Lil Gertie is. She explained to me that she is overall in good health considering the trauma she has had. Dr. B explained to me on how to help Lil Gertie with the ear problems she has had and most likely will continue to have.

After bringing Lil Gertie home from the vet I had dinner with friends. We had corn beef, cabbage, potato’s and carrots with strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was yummy. Junior was there and he came home with me.

Now that we are at my place, Little Gertie appears to like Junior. Junior also likes Lil Gertie. He is in love with her but he can’t have her. I love them both so much.

I am going to get going and spend time with Junior. Have a great day. Peace Out, World!!!

Spending Time With My Kitty

Hello, World!!! I went to the street fair in my neighborhood again today. I had a blast until my PTSD symptoms caused several panic attacks. I came home in tears and Lil Gertie came up to me and snuggled up with me. She is doing a wonderful job with helping me deal with my emotions.

Now that I am calmed down I can use other skills to help me deal with the unwanted left over emotions. One of the things I did was painted. I attempted to paint Lil Gertie but it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to. That’s okay because a friend of mine is going to help me learn how to paint a tad bit better.

So Far So Awesome

Good Afternoon, World!!! Today, has been an awesome day. When Junior got home from work I made him some breakfast. Breakfast consisted of French Toast, scrambled eggs and fresh strawberries. After breakfast is when we became passionate.

We became passionate in bed. We made love. Sex only two individuals who are in love can have due to the passion we have for each other.

After a couple of hours of passionate sex, Junior took a nap and I went and got my hair cut. I actually just got it trimmed.

When I get home from getting my hair cut that is when Junior and I went to the street fair. We had a great time looking at the arts and/or crafts people were selling to make some money. The fair food was awesome. The best part was being able to hold hand with Junior.

Thank you for reading. Have a great day. Peace Out, World!!!

DBT Skills Helping Me Through A Rough Moment

Hello, World!!! I am struggling a little right now. I am struggling with anxiety and PTSD. A struggle that I know I can get through. I can get through with the use of my skills. Specifically, DBT skills.

One of those skills is painting. I will be painting to help express the emotions that I am feeling at the moment. Emotions that I have trouble verbalizing out loud or even on paper or computer screen.

Another skill I can do that is helpful to me is mindfulness. Mindfulness helps calm my anxiety right down. Mindfulness also gives me a sense of peace. A peace the Buddhism is giving me as I look into it.

Looking into Buddhism is giving me a faith and hope that I have been searching for. A faith that has been a long time coming.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Monday Morning Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! I am not a big fan of being up early. It is 5:30ish in the morning in my corner of the world. I would be happy if I could sleep in till till seven or eight o’clock in the morning. On good part at least I wasn’t up at three o’clock in the morning today.

As I sit here blogging I am having my cup of tea and watching the news. My news paper hasn’t been delivered yet today. Having a cup of tea in the morning is like people having a cup of coffee in the morning. I am not a big fan of the taste of coffee. For me tea is self soothing.

I am not sure what I am going to be doing today as I have a migraine. I hope my migraine goes away as I want to go to art group today. I love attending art group. I love art as it helps me express my emotions.

I don’t understand why everyone is obsessed with the Royal Wedding. They are just normal people like you and I are. They just are more well known than we are. I just don’t want to hear about the royal wedding anymore.

Thank you for reading. Have a good work week. Peace Out, World!!!

 

Sunday Night Random Thoughts

Hello, World!!! I am sitting here at my laptop on what I am going to be posting about. Usually, I have some idea but not so much at the moment. I just hope I don’t offend anyone with whatever come out of my head through my hands onto the post. It is my hope that I don’t say anything offensive.

As many of you know today was the first Mother’s Day without my grandma being around. I painted a picture of what is suppose to look like a yellow rose. My grandma’s favorite flower was the yellow rose. My painting didn’t come out as desired but hey it’s that healing part of creating that was helpful to me.

I also read a book called Why Buddhism is True. I am looking into Buddhism to see if it is the right faith for me especially in regards to my recovery. One of the key principles to recovery is faith even if you consider yourself an atheist it counts. I also read some Buddhist Scriptures as well which gave me some peace.

Thank you for reading. You all are quite awesome or reading my blog. Have a good night. Peace Out, World!!!
