A moment of presence

These days I am stuck inside the house. I have a foot injury and cannot make it down the 2 steps outside lol. There's just not much to do in the house, and I'm constantly wishing to go outside. Now it's just letting the days pass until my next doctor's appointment. I find that a lot of thoughts are vying for my attention left and right, some good; others, not so much. But regardless, I am training myself to shake my head and open my eyes wide to just return my consciousness to the present. I used to get lost in those so often, and it's so refreshing to come out of it into the present moment

I am sorry you have an injury. It is frustrating not being able to go out and it can make a person feel low. I hope you have some good distractions.

Thank you. Just trying to keep my mind busy

It would drive me nuts stuck in all day I have to go oug every day walking shopping etc

Wishing you a speedy recovery

Thank you

Oh my, I'm sorry your injury is keeping you from going outside. Could you pull a chair up to your door and enjoy your favorite drink? I'm glad you can get out of the thoughts and come back to the present. Wishing you fast healing!!

Thank you

I'm sorry you needed surgery on your foot. I hope it will heal quickly so you can enjoy the outside again. I like the idea of training our brain because mine can certainly be unruly!!!

Thank you. Yeah training the brain takes some time, but it eventually gives you time

You know Kai,

You're pretty amazing. I like you're style kiddo. It sucks that you have such troublesome situations, but I really dig your resilliance and outlook. I love the way you talk about doing the work it takes to handle those thoughts that want to run amuck (that word reminds me of Sarah Jessica Parker in Hocus Pocus - one of my favorite movies lol) Good Job Kai, and hope the doc says you're on the mend. WLA...AU

Yeah, thank you, I really appreciate that. I have gone through some tough situations in my life, but in the end, it's all about learning from them and developing your character. If you don't learn from them, you'll bound to repeat them, as I have many times lol. I appreciate the sentiment; like I always say, people with mental health illness, or any kind of illness for that matter, are some of the most thoughtful and kind individuals in the world
