was going to try it myself. kt's in home therapist assigned kt to call & check in with her daily at a set time to report something positive that has happened. kt struggles - she seems to enjoy the drama; the chaos that dominates her life. If there isn't a drama, kt tends to create it. I thought a great deal about this. With all the chaos/drama of being the parent of twin difficult children, it can be hard on any given day to find something pleasant, positive to talk or think about. And I've decided this isn't healthy for me - my mental, emotional or physical heatlh. So, I am going to do that assignment each day as well. It may be a stretch each day to find something positive or pleasant that isn't difficult child related (I threw that in for me - I already spend far too much time on difficult child related issues.) I may call it my "happy thought" for the day or just recognize it as one. I'm not going to call kt's therapist - I believe I'll journal it each day in my PDA. I may share it here with you all - I may not. Haven't decided yet. And I will find one positive each day - something pleasant to discuss with husband or a friend. Yesterday's pleasantry surrounded my bird sanctuary. I had a feeding frenzy out there yesterday morning; there were 27 cardinals out there feeding. It was a delight to see all those colorful birds feeding - chasing off other birds to let their young ones feed. I sat for 20 minutes & watched this delightful scene. It stayed with me all day & when I thought about it later I smiled. I hope you can find something of this nature to help you through your darkest days.
