I wanted to share a post with you from a blogger named Jessica. She has truly great insight into her recovery process from OCD. Though I did not receive treatment at McLean Hospital, I could completely relate to what she said about finding her way back through the scary OCD forest. My absolute favorite part of her post is when she said, "At the end of the day it's not how you felt it's how you lived." (Emphasis mine.) Well said, Jessica. Very well said.
Why "71º & Sunny?"
I consider 71º to be the perfect temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. I also love perfect sunny days. The vast majority of days are not 71º & Sunny and yet, all days were created by God's hand and they are still gifts, even if they don't fit my ridiculous definition of perfection. My struggle with OCD has at times imprisoned me in an impossible attempt to achieve perfection. I'm now learning to love all kinds of days that don't even come close to 71º & Sunny.
Please leave me a comment below. I really want to know what you are thinking!
