This & That: Writing Is Therapeutic

I like to write. Writing is therapeutic for me. I’ve been journaling since I was 8 years old. This is my most recent.

1. We have a dog. Well it’s Jeff’s dog, but he’s living in my backyard. His name is Biggie and he’s the cutest English Bulldog. I’m certain he’s also the strongest bulldog. I always thought I was such a dog lover. Something happened in my adult years where I became cautious of them and find myself slightly nervous around animals. As of now my relationship with Biggie is this: I open the door, he bulldozes into the house, runs around like a he just downed one of my Red Bulls and then proceeds to latch onto my arm with his mouth and hump my leg. My goal by the end of May is for Biggie and I to become the best of friends. Like lay by my feet while I work and let me pet him without him wanting to jump on my back friends..

2. I recently discovered the cobb salad at Chick-fil-a with avocado lime dressing. I know most Chick-fil-a fans are way ahead of me on this, but seriously..it’s incredible! Fun fact: did you know everything is made fresh there? As in they bread the chicken, grate the carrots, squeeze the lemons, etc. I was impressed!

3. Yesterday I had a phone session with my old counselor, Keri Maughan. I haven’t had any type of session in over two years but the past couple weeks I’ve found myself getting “into the box”. I’ve struggled most my life feeling unworthy of success. That was really hard to type those words out..but it’s true. It’s so true that writing is therapeutic. I’ve been known to self sabotage good things in my life out of fear. It’s something I’ve worked really hard to get past in my life. Because of that hard work and self reflection I’ve attracted the best life I could imagine for myself and my kids, and I still feel a little unworthy at times. I know what it’s like to be at the bottom of the barrel in complete despair and I also know what it feels like to be content and over the past few month’s I’ve been experiencing complete joy in love, family and career. I’m my happiest outside “the box”.
