Rewriting and Rewiring


As I plan my days, I realize I am riddled with anxiety from my earlier life.

I am so grateful to have discovered the tools to rewrite and rewire my behavior patterns.

Even the simplest things are available for revamping.

I do know that now I am changing the foundation for my life.

That it is becoming safe.

That I can now see into the huge spaces that I had to block off in order to keep functioning.

That I can gently deal with each little item and tell myself that I am safe.

That it is safe to proceed.

That simple things can be done without criticism.

That they will not be met with cruelty and punishment.

I am so grateful for everything that sustained me.

And now I am grateful that I can peer out into more and more safe spaces.

I had no idea of the comfort of simply being able to live.
