Stayed present when I was triggered. Enjoyed time with my daughter.

Relaxed with my sketchpad with baseball on in the background. I don't give a rip about either team, but it's a comforting sound.

Today I revisited an old writing project and decided it was worth working more on. I let myself get totally immersed in the work and world I was creating and for a little bit, lived my characters' lives rather than my own. It was a nice break.

Going to the gym to feel stronger. Cleared my head and slept great last night.

Today I got a haircut!
And when I got home, I watched some "junk food" TV.

When I absolutely know there is no chance of putting a quarter into my past and restart the moment, I'll drive. When I've sequestered myself from other drivers, on a lonely stretch of road...I'll bellow out songs. Most often with the radio or c.d. or...whatever. In severe cases...I'll just holler. Or....and this big to admit...I'll sound off with Marine Corps cadence. Marching or otherwise (p.t. and whatnot).
