In Trauma Informed Peer Support, we talked about the difference between public and private Trauma. We also talked about what helps us deal with Trauma.  By the end of the activity, this is what we came up with: “ supporting ourselves and each other is how we take our power back.” It’s true – supporting my peers is definitely, at least, how I take my own power back. I love that we could end an activity about trauma in empowerment.  The Decatur peer support and wellness center holds Trauma informed peer support every Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30.

The countdown continues til Dragoncon!  Reading Oh my goth!  And eating homemade ginger carrot soup about a week ago.  I am reading for Fall and ready for the con!  I am working Saturday and Sunday, but that’s ok. So much happens at Dcon that there will plenty for me to do.  I told someone last night that dragoncon is where I can be as weird as I want to be. We all need a place like that-a place of full acceptance. #dragoncon #dcon #dragoncon2018 #dcon2018 #stayweird #beweird #gratitude #recovery #fallsoup #readyforfall #ohmygoth #voltaire #worklifebalance

“Falling Leaves”  I am super busy right now preparing for a conference, a convention, and two performances in September. Whoa.  What this means is that it is more important than ever to take time for myself. If I am not mindful of my body and my stress level, then I will spin myself out of control. So I take time for art, gratitude, for cooking, for reading, for prayer... I might be able to do these things only in short amounts of time, but do them I must. This was the time last year when I really started going downhill and there is no way I’m going to make that mistake again. Today I am grateful for beauty in the midst of busyness. #zentangleart #zentangle #zentangles #doodlesofinstagram #doodleoftheday #mindfulness #contentment #peacelovehappiness #recoverywarrior #anxietyrecovery #copingskills #zen #zentangleartist #artistlife #artistsoninstagram #artist #serenity #innerpeace #peersupport #warmline #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #fallart #busyness #boundaries #selfcaretips #selfcare #anxietyrelief

This is what recovery looks like: Having fun with my R2ISE theater recovery brothers and sisters. No longer will I hide.  Tomorrow tickets will be available for our events September 14 & 15.  It’s both intimidating and exciting because my piece is so vulnerable and special to me.  Performance brings us liberation and I am grateful.  #gratefuleveryday #positivevibration #positivevibe #productiveday #lifeworthliving #hopeisreal #bethechangeyouwanttosee #focusonthegood #gratitude #mentalhealth #selflovejourney #peersupport #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #empoweredwoman #atlantaga #decaturga #recovery #blessedbe #theaterlife #artheals #thisiswhatrecoverylookslike #havingfun #bpdwarrior #anxietyrelief #anxietyrecovery #anxietywarrior #freetobeme #livingoutloud #bipolardisorder

I am kilin it”  Another great day.  My therapist complimented me on my dialectical skills. I’m getting much better at riding the emotional waves.  Nothing’s perfect and so now we’re working on my before bed anxiety.  Today my dad and I looked through my LCC papers and figured out my next steps.  I’m very excited about everything as long as I take everything one step at a time.  I’m almost excited about going to bed tonight to see if I can ride the wave of anxiety tonight instead of taking my prn.  More and more I look at life as an exciting adventure, even the hard stuff, and it helps me a lot. We’ll see if I can keep up the good attitude when I turn off the light tonight.

It’s been a fantastic day.  Things have been done with intention.  I made homemade strawberry buttercream frosting for church, I got about half of my lgbt cultural competency PowerPoint completed, presented the Mental health hope and wellness designation at my church (KUCC), attended a wedding shower after church (hence the cupcakes) and then gave extra cupcakes away at work.  I am well and so grateful for it.  When I am intentional with my energy, it lasts longer.  When I do not procrastinate, my anxiety is lower.  When I embrace my passions and the communities I love, then I am well.  I am beginning to accept my body more and more and like everything else, it is easier when I am intentional with wearing and focusing on things that make me feel good. #gratefuleveryday #positivevibration #positivevibe #productiveday #lifeworthliving #hopeisreal #bethechangeyouwanttosee #focusonthegood #gratitude #mentalhealth #selflovejourney #peersupport #happinessis #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #childofgod #empoweredwoman #atlantaga #decaturga #stampoutstigma #stopstigma #recovery #blessedbe #bodyacceptance #fatacceptance #fatshion #sundayselfie #anxietyrecovery #anxiety #lgbt🌈

I couldn’t believe it but yesterday I found this comics collection by one of my fave dragon con musicians – Voltaire.  I’ll get him to sign it in less than a month! It’s funny in a not so funny way -I was asked during my disability hearing how could I go to Dragon con every year when I have social anxiety? I responded that Dragon con is different than any other kind of social situation for me.  It’s where I can be myself. I can be as weird as I want and I am guaranteed to find people much more weird than me. It is my home away from home. My therapist suggested recently but I take a break from Dragon con this year because I get stressed out in the busyness of August and September. She just doesn’t understand. Dragon con to me, despite its suffocating crowds, despite the drunken slobs, despite the elevators of doom, Dragoncon is what Christmas was like for me as a kid. It’s what keeps me going all year long.  It’s where I feel the most accepted and really is a sacred time for me. Dragon con is a part of my recovery and a very important part at that.  Find that special place where you can be you in all your You-ness.  Fight for those types of safe spaces. I believe everyone has a place in this world and Dragon con is for me. #dragoncon #dragoncon2018 #dcon #dcon2018 #voltaire #aureliovoltaire #ohmygoth #graphicnovel #comics #goth #filk #nerdlove #homeawayfromhome #beweird #beyou #geeklove #recovery #authenticity #mentalhealthrecovery #socialanxiety #disability #gad #anxietyrecovery #anxiety #anxietyrelief

Isn’t it nice?  This official looking box came in the mail with official looking documents the other day.  I still need to really investigate things but I’m so busy with theater and work that business stuff will have to wait for about a month.  That’s ok though. The LLC will be for my speaking and workshop gigs.  They are my passion and I am excited to see them grow.  #gratefuleveryday #positivevibration #positivevibe #productiveday #lifeworthliving #hopeisreal #bethechangeyouwanttosee #focusonthegood #gratitude #mentalhealth #selflovejourney #peersupport #happinessis #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #artheals #childofgod #empoweredwoman #atlantaga #decaturga #stampoutstigma #stopstigma #recovery #reachinggoals

Getting good at anything takes practice-I’ve been practicing how to recharge my batteries for several months now and it’s paying off.  After work I was exhausted.  I went home, had a cup of tea and read a bit.  Recentered myself. Soothed my mind.  I texted people that I would be late and let resting be my priority. I arrived thirty minutes “late”, but it actually was perfect timing.  Having given myself the permission to recharge, I was able to rehearse giving it my all. “Remember who I am” was my mantra this morning as I prepared for work and it helped me throughout the day.  Who I am is a hard worker, a child of God, an empowered woman. At this moment, I have no worries.  #gratefuleveryday #positivevibration #positivevibe #productiveday #lifeworthliving #hopeisreal #bethechangeyouwanttosee #focusonthegood #gratitude #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflovejourney #peersupport #happinessis #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #R2ISE #theaterlife #practiceeveryday #danceheals #artheals #whoiam #childofgod #empoweredwoman #spoonielife #fibrowarrior #cfswarrior #anxietywarrior

“Songbirds learn to sing in the dark.” Hey page in my journal. I definitely feel like I’m in the dark right now – I’m so busy, the only way to not feel overwhelmed is by taking each day by itself. I do what I need to do one day at a time and then except in order to prepare, I do not worry about tomorrow, as much as I can. I feel like I’m using this time to learn how to trust and have faith in just the moment.  It’s hard but I know this is an important skill. I take joy in the little things, just like a bird learning to sing in the dark.  #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #positiveaffirmations #mentalwellness #mentalhealth #bpdrecovery #bpdwarrior #ptsdrecovery #cptsdrecovery #anxietyrecovery #anxietyrelief #copingskills #innerstrength #onethingatatime #mindfulness #onestepatatime #momentbymoment #meditation #faith #trusttheprocess #pause

“Prayers for our sister-ALL: we feel sorrow for all that is to come.  Amen”  A morbid black out poem that I created during church two weeks ago. The world is getting worse for our sisters and sometimes I feel a lot of sorrow, I can’t stay there. Being politically active is a balancing act – I have to balance knowing what’s going on and my mental health. Right now, I am spending most of my time on mental health advocacy. I’d like to do something that directly relates to everything I hear in the news, but I am only one person and I must focus where I can. #blackoutpoetry #blackoutpoetrycommunity #artheals #poetess #poetscommunity #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #atlantaga #kirkwooducc #churchtime #healingart #recoveryjourney #mentalhealthrecovery #recoverywarrior #distraction #meditation #mindfulness #blackoutpoem #blackoutpoetrytribe #solidarity #resisttrump #resist #balanceiskey #mentalhealthwarrior #ptsdrecovery #cptsd #depressionreliever #anxietyrelief #prayerispower #hearmyprayer

I am so excited by these performances!  The pieces I am doing, especially, The Gift of Paychosis, are intensely personal and special to me.  Follow the web address to evite for the tickets.  My only caveat is if you rsvp and then can’t make it, please give them to someone who can-a full House would be nice.  It’s a very intimate theater and I think people will come away from glad they attended. #r2ise #artheals #decaturga #atlantaga #atlantatheater #decaturtheatre #recovery #mentalhealthrecovery #theaterheals #emory #decaturevents #atlantaevents #september2018 #bpdrecovery #bpdwarrior #bipolarrecovery #bipolardisorder #schizophrenia #schizoaffective #schizoaffectiverecovery #schizophreniarecovery #edwarrior #edrecovery #addictionrecovery #ptsdrecovery #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #ocdrecovery #anxietyrecovery #depressionwarrior

“You work long hours-the learning process-you feel frustrated-annoyed-keep at it”  church has been intense for me lately and it helps to turn the bulletin into blackout poetry.

It’s 4:30am.  I just woke up and I feel a sense of freedom that I haven’t felt in a looooong time.  Somehow I got the idea that recovery was about fitting in and being “acceptable” but that’s not what it’s about at all.  It’s about freedom and learning and letting go and joy. Through acting and singing and painting, I am liberating myself from deep pain. #alifeworthliving #artheals #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #gratitudeattitude #recovery #mentalhealing #lettinggo #freedom #mentalfreedom #catsofinstagram #watercolourpainting #liberation #gratitude #positivevibration #joy
