October 24th, 2018 My timeline of progress

I decided to do a timeline - an interesting cognitive exercise, as well as visual - Early Sept., 2011 - wake up to terrible VERTIGO ...

July 3rd, 2018 My reminders - what they mean to me...















The pics you see are what I see, when I'm sitting listening to audio books... there's also (not pictured) a desk with my Talking Books audio player, my iPad, some photos, and a desk with my computer.

The big sign is the newest... I wanted reminders... here's what they mean to me -

1) Breathe - is my breathing too shallow, tight? Time for diaphragmatic/belly breathing.

2) looking soft is a reminder re my vision disorder -taking in my periphery, not getting tunnel vision - unless of course it's appropriate.

3) small pieces - each bit builds on another.

4) celebrate EVERY success  - no matter how small - I'm working on giving myself credit.

5) do the best you can in THIS moment - do the best with what I have right now.. my physical and/or emotional well-being, info, experience in the moment... Thinking this way, feeling centered in the moment, is definitely a work in progress for me.

6) keep going, trying - this is really hard... I'm trying, could be something small, but feels tough - to tell myself "OK, you're going to try...".

Writing this piece, I realized how much I over-think, over-analyze, and judge myself. I need one more reminder, in a special spot all its' own - it will read -
"Be patient, compassionate with yourself". 

Here's a definition of compassion -
"sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others" -
so having self-compassion is basically concern for your own suffering and, hopefully, healing.
