Man okay. Today I got dropped off at the clinic I go to and went straight to group. The counselor was talking to us over the internet from Elizabeth town, just going around the room not only getting to know the people, but their stories too. Then before I knew it, as I was finishing up talking about my story, This girl sitting a few seats down from me said, ” I think I know your sister”. I was like omg! It was none other than my sisters best friend from the late 80’s to early 90’s. Teresa. It was towards the end of the group session anyways. I jumped up after she told me her first name. As soon as I stood up and looked to where she was sitting, I knew exactly who she was. We had recently started talking over Facebook. She joined the group I created. We have a lot of catching up to do. I hope to see her again soon one day. I have many questions for her as I’m sure she does me as well. I hope she’s at group this coming up week. I don’t think I got her phone number before we left that day. I was so stoked to run into one of my sister’s best friends from the past. Talk about a throwback. It was truly great.
I have always loved expressing myself through words. I have been a bookworm since I started reading I think. So expressing myself through writing has forever been super easy for me. Now if I could just teach everyone who didn't know how, how to read, then they'd be able to read all the fascinating literature out there. I'd go crazy if I couldn't curl up to a good book on a rainy day if I wanted to. I work with the public. So I was outside a couple days ago typing away on my 2nd hand chrome book, and a nice gentleman started conversation about how long it took to charge. I said not long for an older model. He said he knew, about the older model I was working with. I proceeded to tell him I was trying my hand at writing a book. He turned out to be an avid bookworm himself. He gave me nothing but encouragement to finish the book. I like to tell myself I can do anything. But we all know how some people should just stick to their profession, well I'm gonna keep trying. I won't stop until I know without a shadow of doubt I can't succeed. Then maybe I'll put my pencil down, or in my case now, close my chrome book for good. Something tells me I won't have to just yet though.View Archive →
