It’s only Friday and I already checked off two items on my Pull Yourself Together list.

I completed Part 1 of my Home Depot project, which, by the way, was not as easy as the DIY video made it seem.  Plus, it was 57 degrees and raining – not exactly the conditions depicted in the clip.  I’m not sure how fulfilling the process was, but it did keep me busy and focused for the better part of the afternoon.  Mission accomplished.
This evening I met up with 8 other tormented souls like mine and we shared our experience, strength and hope until we felt better when we left than we did coming in.  I had a glimpse of my progress over the past 15 years, and it made me feel good to know that even though I feel so far from sane at times, I am not the empty shell of a woman I was back then.
Many things have worked together to breathe Life back into my lungs, but two things stand out among them.  Running opened up my heart, and Love filled it. 
No matter how many unknowns are outstanding, no matter what changes threaten to turn my life upside-down, Love remains – strong and true, and I’m so very secure and content in that.

One Comment on “Progress, not Perfection

  1. Great job on completing your project. Still would like to know what it is. 🙂

    Being around other people with similar issues I am mixed on. Nice to know that you are never alone but on the other hand, sometimes misery can bring misery esp when you are outnumbered! lol As long as the session was positive, awesome!

    Running is my way of soul searching and has also opened up my heart. Havea great Holiday weekend Lisa!
