Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Blessings are in abundance, if you notice them.

I love the Spring weather in this beautiful part of the world I am blessed to live in.

Spring is probably my favourite time of year. I used to love all the cherry blossom trees in the country I previously lived in. Here, the jacarandas are stunning! And purple – one of my two favourite colours. I’ll no doubt start taking pics of them soon. I love taking photos of everything, all the beauty around me. It helps me to be very mindful of the moment, of the beauty, of what God has blessed us with. Helps me focus on good and be thankful for all the good.

My children are happy souls. My garden is looking lovely. My veggies are growing. The sun is shining. I have some peace and quiet for an hour now, before I go meet a lovely friend for coffee.

Life is good.

It is very healthy, to enjoy solitude and your own company.


I talked about this in counselling …..

And how I now love and crave my own company… and this is about increased emotional intelligence, not ‘needing’ people and having inner security.

And that peace is not found in ‘people’.

Carl G Jung ….. even stated that he needed his alone time, his regular times of solitude. And other wise people speak of this and their need for it too.

I was thankful to have this validated, as healthy.

And that enjoying my own company, and finding peace in that ~ more than I do in time with my family, or other people …. is not something to feel guilty about, or feel is wrong.

It’s interesting how much I have changed……. I used to hate being alone…….. now it is where I am most happy, content and find peace.

It is where I think, process, enjoy myself, and talk to Jesus.
