Counting my Blessings

Lately, my moods have been pretty regulated. I am just on Prozac right now, as I am still waiting on someone, anyone, to get the Zyprexa prior authorized.  However, just the Prozac seems to be working okay by itself. For which I am more than grateful…as I am sure all those around me are too.

All that quiet in my brain reminds me how much I love the silence and also gives me a moment to remember my worth–something I never do when my brain is having a breakdown.  I forget, in the throes of the chaos, what a good person I really am. I forget that I am caring and funny and generous and loyal and forgiving and fun and loving and just plain cool as fuck.  I forget that I am so much better than I give myself credit for.

I also forget to count my blessings…….and I have a lot of them to count. So essentially that is what this post is going to be about… And for once I am not going to do the double edged thing I do and downplay them after I have stated them. I am just going to state them and enjoy that and move on to the next one.

  • I have raised three amazing kids. Alone.
  • I have prevailed over every obstacle in my life thus far.
  • I am healthy.
  • I am strong.
  • I am loyal.
  • I always bounce back.
  • I have survived addiction(s)….and beat them.
  • I am very good at forgiveness.
  • I have people who love me.
  • I have very good friends.
  • I have skills–lots of them.
  • I have morals, and values and standards.
  • I have learned not to settle.
  • I am worth the effort–in all aspects of my life.
  • I have a roof over my head, food in my belly, and a bed to sleep in.
  • Even though I learn the hard way–I always learn my lesson.
  • I am creative.
  • I am funny.
  • I am  a good person, friend and mother.
  • I am stronger than my past.
  • I am also stronger than my illness.
  • I am smart.
  • I love with all my heart and soul.

I am blessed.  And that makes me very happy.

  1. That is a great list of blessings to remember. Good for you for writing them out and reaffirming them.

    I am glad the meds are working. Keep staying “cool as fuck”! (love that!) 😀
