a good day

Yesterday i went to my program, then afterwards i went and had a cigar with an old friend. Then i went to watch the sun set and there were lots of people there, and i overheard that they were waiting for fireworks, so i stayed and waited to watch the fireworks as well. It was nice. A good firework show and lots of happy little kids with glow sticks running around.

The day before yesterday i saw another friend. She made us corn on the cob, told a couple funny jokes and we went in her backyard and chopped wood. it was fun.

My program is going well. In expressive therapy we drew t-shirts that expressed ourselves. I drew a camoflage t-shirt with a symbol for man and woman on it, and on the back i wrote HERO and Survivor. It made me feel good to write nice things about myself, even if sometimes i have a hard time believing them. I'm starting to believe in myself again.

Today i took a drive through Boston to get to my parent's house, where i am now. I will probably drive back through Boston again. It is such a beautiful drive by the river.  I made a mix CD this morning to listen to on the drive. Lots of songs i can sing along to. Singing is good for the soul. So is dancing, but i do that quite a bit less. I do play the guitar or the harmonica almost every day, even if just for a minute. I don't actually know how to play, but i mess around with it and i like it.

I got a card from my sister  Nikki today for my birthday. It was nice. We are slowly trying to mend a long period where we were not close. I really love both my sisters. They are strong, talented women.

Life is still a bit crazy, but i have been working on being assertive in order to get my needs met. Sometimes people have to be disapointed. I don't like to disapoint people, but if i let people walk all over me i will never be happy. I still get a bit awkward when it comes to setting limits, but i'm getting better at it. I was seeing a therapist for a couple weeks, but i stopped seeing her for personal reasons. I want a therapist, but now just might not be the right time. The day program is helpful though. I like being able to interact with people that understand where i'm coming from. i like that we are peers there... not me vs a professional.

so things are good. i'll be checking in on LJ when i can. Hopefully i'll get my computer fixed soon.

Just to let you know I am dashing around ready to go to a night away in the Lakes. I have read all your comments, thanks! I was really happy to hear about this precious good day..the programme is working well, and re-affirms your regard for who you are, if you keep at it, and always remember there are other people who care, and that you are 'special' then life will be good. Hope the sick computer if fixed soon. Love and peace, J. More next week. I am on holiday!
