Thinking about the future and reflecting on my past makes me feel excited because I have been consistently growing. I’ll be honest, there aren’t many things that I have done for years at a time other than being a mother. After my enlistment in the military, I maintained a couple of jobs for no more than 1 year. I jumped in and out of mental wellness. I continued to pick up my bags of unhealed troubles so that I could drag them along with me to my next phase of life.
After each temporary job title, each failed relationship, and even after the blessing of more children (I have 3), I was happy on most days, but even as I respond to this prompt I can see a major difference in my mindset.
I’m excited to thrive,
live not just survive.
Long term I will thrive.
I will thrive.
I am ready for a simple, peaceful life,
realizing that simple and stable doesn’t mean boring.
Now my bag is full of these tools that I can use,
I’m no longer using up my therapy time on
“Jessica’s crisis of the week.”
I am excited to stay healthy,
I am happy to be alive.
And yes, there were times when I couldn’t
firmly say those things.
I am excited to keep growing
and learning myself.
I am excited to show my children
what it means to get back up
and do this life thing right.
Cliche statement, but the future looks bright.
