Things are falling into place and optimism is trickling in. Although by nighttime, my optimism tends to fly out the window.
Today, I had a therapy appointment with an amazing therapist and a fantastic individual. I discussed my involvement on the SEPTSA board (Special Education PTSA), my plans to volunteer at Roger’s elementary school, my work projects, and my plans to delay, or not even seek, my graduate degree. However, my therapist believes I can do all of the above. I may have to lower my expectations (choose to get B’s in school so I can still focus on my family and interests). Even though, wholeheartedly accepting a B seems quite a stretch for me, I do think I am going to exercise the thinking that I will try my best but do not want to neglect all other areas of life.
Though I had a troubled night sleep due to the above worries and the possibility that the decaf I ordered yesterday was actually caffeinated coffee, I am feeling refreshed, renewed, and optimistic.
I felt overwhelmed this morning but feel READY this afternoon!
