Week 1

I got to the room, did a scan of the people that had gotten there before me and thought oh Lord this is certainly not going to work out. It’s like all of a sudden it clicked that I was about to meet with some random group of people at group therapy and dive in to some of my biggest fears. Not ok.

Against my better judgment I decided to stay. This was my first week, but everyone else’s second week as I missed the first one due to prior commitments. I was told it would not be a big deal as it was more introductory stuff the first time. I just had to catch up on the reading and fill out paper. I said a total of maybe 2 words. Shifted back and forth about a billion times, tried to regulate my breathing while soaking everything in that was going on around me.

After some mindfulness exercises and participation from about everyone except myself, I started to kind of realize that these people weren’t so bad, and maybe I’ll get something out of this. Maybe. Maybe I already did take away a few things but I just haven’t let myself fully admit that this quite possibly may not be so bad.

I took over my father’s blog September of 2017 after losing his battle with mental illness. This blog was originally to share my journey through grieving, finding peace, and trusting God in the process...and in many ways is exactly that. This has evolved into life as a family of 4 with 2 dogs, living in the Midwest. I will cover everything from fashion to our family routines. Join us on this crazy adventure!
