In these times I am reminded to think about the things that are good and well. . .things to be thankful and grateful for, even if it's seemingly few.
Here is mine:
There is a beautiful, faraway view of Mount Rainier from my front porch.
Change. It often feels horrible, but I always feel worse with very little change. Being too "comfortable" often results in more ritualistic behaviors, OSD and fear. I purposely mix up smaller things in my life because of this.
Custom earplugs, Proloquo2go, trampolines, jellyfish, compression clothing, Body Pods, stimming, visual reminders, and other helpers: These are all things that make my life. . . livable.
Whenever I make a list like this, I usually put it up somewhere in my home, until it has been up so long that it becomes part of the background (forgetting about it) . . . then I am reminded again that there are good things in life, things to be grateful for, and the cycle continues :-)
