Friday the 13th in this crazy year of 2020....most people think it is an unlucky day. The Scotsman has a great article on this.
Why is number 13 considered unlucky?For me, I don't look at it that way. I look at it as possibilities because of what Jesus and the 12 managed to do in 3 short years, along with the 72 others. 72 others? Yes. It is in Luke 10
‘Unlucky 13’ has been a superstition since the middle ages when Christians associated it with the number of guests at the last supper - the night before Jesus was crucified.
Judas, the 13th guest to attend the dinner, betrayed Jesus.
Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two
10 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two[a] others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
There are a lot of things the most people think are true, and let others form their own thoughts instead of letting you find your own. If they tell you that you are doomed because you have PTSD or will have an unlucky life, or worse, are suffering because you deserve it, they know nothing. It may make them feel better taking you down or seeing you suffer but you are the only one who can defeat their delusion and prove them wrong.
You are on the road to healing and can leave them behind if they will not help you. Or, you can help them be happy too. That is also in your power to decide.
Stress is also something that you can decide to have or let go of, even if it is only for a little while.
I was driving earlier today and feeling stress in my neck when the song from Taste of Honey came on. I ended up dancing in the driver's seat. The rest of the drive home, was stress free.
Music can do that if you let it. Everyday find a song that makes you want to dance, even if it is in your chair. Let it lift you up from the mood you were in, even if it only lasts for a little while.
The more you do it, the more you take power away from PTSD and feed the power that does in fact belong to you.
Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!
