Daily Reminder # 323

Well, the heat is back on - the guys who came last week accidentally turned the furnace off.  Three and a half days with no heat is not my favorite sport, but the new insulation was very helpful I think, since I survived relatively unscathed except for the going kind of crazy part. The best thing about having the furnace back on is that my spriral into the depth of craziness has stopped. I'm exhausted, but I'm not tormenting myself any more. I'm so grateful for my therapist. He was wonderful today. I cried, I laughed, I cried some more, I laughed some more and I even sang to him.... He was telling me the lyrics of a Paul Simon song because I always make myself wrong - and wrong about absurd things like a furnace breaking and it made him think of these lyrics and those lyrics that reminded me of this one by Billy Joel, which I really love. So I offer them both to anyone who passes this way.

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude - an effort to encourage the Universe and myself to manifest cool stuff and truckloads of money.)

I am glad your heat was an easy fix and your happiness rebounded!

I'm glad your heat is back on. I meant to comment yesterday & forgot, but I am the exact SAME WAY about worrying that I'll look stupid. I do this especially with physical ailments - but so far I've been right that there was something seriously wrong. Doesn't make me "happy" exactly, but validated I guess.

On the other hand I'm finally at an age where I only half care if I look stupid, which is nice. :)

I'm sooo looking forward to not caring if I look stupid, still do, sadly. But yay! The heating is back. You're not crazy.
