72 Hours In.

Posted on

First off, Happy New Year everyone,

I know its a bit late for me to say that, but as they say, better late than never; ย and in my case, it came close to that (being never that is). 12 hours before New Year my cousin brother and I got into a car accident; at this point its old news, but then…well, it was something. Decided to keep to myself for a little bit, that dose of perspective shaped the beginning of my New Year. No-one got hurt (Thank God) but I wasn’t exactly reflecting positive vibes for the last few days.

Otherwise I hope you all enjoyed, it couldn’t have been bad for everyone :P. Funny thing though, I get to say I had the accident Last Year instead of Last Week, makes it sound further than it actually is (slight placebo effect is helping me forget faster).

To get into better spirits I looked at all my poetry for this year and selected the top 10 that were most liked by other bloggers, hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Car acvidents can be terrifying. The mental trauma afterwards can be worse than the accident itself. I was in a bad one years ago….about 20 years ago. I still have some PTSD from time to time when I am driving and certain triggers are present.
    If you are having emotions about the accident, it is a human reaction …it does not mean there is something wrong with you or that you are over-reacting.
    Sitting with your feelings is better than trying to shove them down. They will only chase you.
    Wishing you peace of mind.
    Lots of love,

      Thank you for your kind words Annie, I can relate on the triggers. Just today, as I was driving I had a slight de ja vu moment that made me temporarily forget how to operate a car for few seconds. I guess my problem is evading the emotions, haven’t really talked about it much. Writing is helping though, but I will heed your advice ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thank you Annie
