I mowed the lawns today! Yah Me!
Now while that sounds like a pretty bland event and one that doesn’t deserve a high five…here’s why, for me, it does…
I haven’t touched the lawn mower in ages…years actually. As the old PTSD crept in, and I became more and more sensitive to noise and smell…and couldn’t get past the letterbox…lawn mowing was not something that was on top of the priority list! A lot of noise and then ear muffs and the constant vibration of the motor, didn’t make for a ‘safe’ environment for little old me.
I’ve been trying to work up the courage to mow the dam lawns for ages…it’s on my list of things to achieve.
And today I achieved it 🙂
I had to stop about 5 times, to re focus and breath…ground thyself lol. And every time I stopped shaking, I went back out and kept on going.
And that for me, is an achievement worth a high five 🙂
