PTSD Patrol Train of Hope

Today the featured video is Bruce Springsteen, Hope and Dreams, This Train. It got me thinking of how people can get a narrow line of vision where all they see is what is negative. If that is all you look for, then you do not see what is good, what is possible and discover something to hope for. With PTSD, you tend to cling to misery because it is what you know is there, but when you open your eyes to the hope of healing, that is what you begin to search for. It is a lot better to look at your life with hope than it is to settle for what you have. #BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD



Oh oh this train, I'm riding this train
Don't you wanna ride 
(This train)
Oh get on, get on (this train)
Grab your ticket and your suitcase
Thunder's rolling down the tracks
You don't know where you're goin' now
But you know you won't be back
Darlin' if you're weary
Lay your head upon my chest
We'll take what we can carry
And we'll leave the rest
Big wheels rolling through fields
Where sunlight streams
Meet me in a land of hope and dreams
I will provide for you
And I'll stand by your side
You'll need a good companion
For this part of the ride
Leave behind your sorrows
Let this day be the last
Tomorrow there'll be sunshine
And all this darkness past
Big wheels roll through fields
Where sunlight streams
Meet me in a land of hope and dreams
This train carries saints and sinners
This train carries losers and winners
This train carries whores and gamblers
This train carries lost souls
I said, this train dreams will not be thwarted
This train faith will be rewarded
This train hear the steel wheels singin'
This train bells of freedom ringin'
This train carries saints and sinners
This train carries losers and winners
This train carries whores and gamblers
This train carries lost souls
I said, this train carries broken-hearted
This train thieves and sweet souls departed
This train carries fools and kings
This train, all aboard
I said, this train dreams will not be thwarted
This train faith will be rewarded
This train hear the steel wheels singin'
This train bells of freedom ringin'
Come on this train
People get ready
You don't need no ticket
All you got do is just get on board 
On board this train
This train, people get ready

You don't need no ticket (oh I know you don't)
You don't need no ticket you just get on board (people get ready) 
You just thank the Lord (people get ready)
Come on this train (people get ready)
