In today's video, I discuss the Texas freeze of 2021. I survived it!!
I went without power or cell service for 2 full days. My house got down to 42 degrees Farenheight. And it was not that bad! I think that has so much to do with my attitude and the skills I learned along the way as a survivor of Complex PTSD.
I discuss the 4 things I learned:
Today's video is about love. Think about who you love and if you love them conditionally or unconditionally.
It's interesting to consider the conditions we put on those we love. Or those we think we love.
Romantic love as well.

From the book Laws of Success by Napoleon Hill unconditional love is the following: enthusiasm, controlled attention, going the extra mile, a pleasing personality, applied faith, maintaining sound physical health, universal law, self-discipline, budgeting time and money, personal initiative, learning from defeat.

Have you ever seen police lights in your rearview mirror and get a sudden wave of fear? Your heart rate starts pulsing and you begin to think of every little thing you just did to see if it is you who is getting pulled over?
That my friend is a trigger. And when you have PTSD it can take something as simple as spending time with a 3-year-old child when all of a sudden you have flashbacks to a time and place where you are in trauma.
Triggers are something every person has whether they have PTSD or not. As a survivor of Complex PTSD, I can tell you those triggers come out of nowhere even when you are healthy and far removed from the narc.
Today I am going to help you by identifying ways to deal with those triggers to minimize the effect.

This week’s fitness tip:
You may be missing the camaraderie of the gym, the relaxation of swimming laps, or the social connection from walking or hiking with a group of friends.
