I’m sitting on my bunk looking out the window and watching the cars as they pass by. I am wondering what the people in the cars are thinking as they drive by a prison. Each one probably has his or her own opinion that is positive or negative…I only hope that the positive ones out weigh the negative.
The sun is bright as the rays bounce off the leaves of a spring green tree as it waves in the wind. Just another reminder of the gratefulness of life. My feelings right now are at peace as the time gets nearer to a possible answer of my getting released early, as early as next year. I do not dwell on that possibility to avoid allowing myself to get hurt. Lessons are to be learned I remind myself.
I think a person should learn in their own way to have compassion for themselves when going through experiences that seem to be negative or wrong. There is not just one way to do it but the mission is finding the way that works for yourself, at that point in time.
Compassion for yourself is a big one for some of us … but so worth it to have when needed.
I am grateful today, and try to be always.
