Lots of stuff lately.  Been stressed out.  It all comes down to gratitude for me, though.  As freaked as I get over security issues, I can still look out my window or at an inmate on the other side of the glass and just be grateful for where I am right this day, minute, or second or moment.  I have such gifts that I sometimes feel contrite when I get upset. 
Got in an accident, totaled the car.  A definate occasion for my PTSD from the big accident 18 years ago to rear it's ugly head and for all the old bad thoughts to recur.  I have a lot to be grateful for, though.  I hope more bad stuff doesn't happen soon, but it might, and you know what?  It's a chance for me to look at it like 'see? it can always be worse!'  Now I'm getting another car, a better one, and not going to feel a bite financially over it.  Met new clients this day.  I'm new to them, I should say.  It's a chance to make a difference.  I like to make big things out of small events and can freak over relatively small stuff.  You'd think that when the big stuff occurs I'd go to pieces, but I'm usually in ok shape to handle it.  go figure that!

Thanks for being there.
