Half birthdays, therapy, blogging & ninjas

Today is my half birthday. I am forty-seven and a half today. I celebrate a half birthday on April 16 because it helps me get through April 15 which is the anniversary of my husband’s suicide.

Yesterday was fine. No tears, no meltdown, no sense of being sucked into the black hole of grief and regret. This sums up the day ~

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

The reason I did so well yesterday was because I spent Friday and Saturday training as a therapist in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I discovered a whole range of strategies to deal with negative thoughts and uncomfortable feelings. It is pretty amazing to realise that even on the anniversary of the darkest day of my life, there is a way to get past it. I will tell you more soon about how I am living a rich, fulfilled and meaningful life even in the face of great pain.

  1. That little cartoon sums up how I often feel when I think back on my two most serious past relationships. And thanks for that wee video you shared on Facebook, I started my Saturday with it and it put a smile on my face.
