I have the power to create my destiny.
I determine I will be in a home full of love, life and laughter.
I predict treasuring my quiet time and enjoying reading long books (guilt-free) and writing articles and watching videos.
I will love my visitor time both in person and via phone or text or email.
I will always have who and what I need at the right time.
I will think about the big zechus I just had and that will inspire me.
I will take life day by day and not worry about not having any structure to look forward to.
I will smile and be calm and happy because Hashem is my Father and knows what's in my heart and He loves me and is taking care of me.
I like that I'm as browsing through their online articles, they give me a call! That was so crazily cool!
Oh and I love that it's the social worker checking up on me. Hehe. Oh and I just LOVE that when she was trying to explain which building I'm gonna be in for recovery, she described it as "the one where you walked into with Chris." I'm like "Uh it's great how ALL you guys know EVERY detail about my breakdown." And brilliant* social worker that she is, answers "Oh no, not at all, we just meet as a team." Huh??! Yeah hon maybe you need another vacation...
*grab a spoon to catch that sarcasm
Oh yes it does.
When you come to the airport 2 and a 1/2 hours before your domestic flight (because you packed on time and left early and there was no traffic), when there is no line for the self check in monitor, when you are not checking in any luggage, when you zip through the security line, when security doesn't stop you for anything (including the laptop you left in your bag), and you still have about two full hours until your flight, THAT'S WHEN DEPARTURE GATE 1 EXISTS!
G-d, I won't believe anyone that claims to understand You :)
