What is there when you turn the page?

Yesterday we talked about how whatever you believe, will become your truth. If you believe you are stuck suffering, that is what your truth will be, until you decide that you do have the power to change what you want your life to become. You are writing the rest of your story from this moment on. What do you want this changer to be about?

Do you want to go from suffering to healing? Settle for being miserable instead of being happier? That is in your power. You are writing the rest of your life's story.

Today the feature video is Bob Seger Turn The Page. What is going on your next page? Are you going to just settle, or do what you need to so that you make your life better?

You cannot change a damn thing that happened to you. Whatever caused PTSD, is out of your control. Don't let it change what you write now. Use your  power and take control.


Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!
#BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD

On a long and lonesome highway
East of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
Moaning out his one-note song
You can think about the woman
Or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wanderin'
The way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
And there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin'
You just wish the trip was through
Say, here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' the star again
There I go
Turn the page
Well, you walk into a restaurant
Strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
As you're shakin' off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you
But you just want to explode
Most times you can't hear 'em talk
Other times you can
Oh, the same old clich├ęs
"Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered
You don't dare make a stand
Say, here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' the star again
There I go
Turn the page
Out there in the spotlight
You're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
You try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
Like the music that you play
Later in the evening
As you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
Ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette
Rememberin' what she said
Say, here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Just playin' the star again
There I go
Turn the page
Ah, here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
There I go
