PTSD Healing Thought of the Day: Success and Enthusiasm

It’s a fact: PTSD recovery takes a while; you already know this. But did you know that every day you stick with it is a success?Winston Churchill said,

“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”

This doesn’t mean you won’t have days you’re less enthusiastic than others, you will. The point is to go from day to day with an underlying enthusiasm for the future you’re trying to create. Now, I know you can be enthusiastic about that, even if it means shaking off the black goop of trauma one more time.

You have enormous healing potential. The goal is learning to access it.Dig deep. You can do this. I believe in you!
