Almost there! We are about to finish the final (we hope) edit, and the novel is currently in review. God willing and the creeks don't rise, publication will be in early November. Watch for opportunities to get a free download!  The story is about Ronald Dennison who grew up as the son of a backwoods Arkansas preacher. He began having dreams when he was about ten years old that led him to believe he had the calling to preach. He just wanted to be a preacher like his Daddy, but his dreams led him to Nashville where he became a nationally known televangelist in the 1960's and 70's. However, Ronald had secrets he hid from the church, his followers, and his family. Some of those secrets were so deep and dark he hid them even from himself.  #novel #writing #nashville #arkansas #truth #secrets #recovery #mentalhealth #oktosay #blogpost #blessings #karlyletomms www.karlyletomms.com
We save each other, everyday. Or is it every day? Thanking God for being able to get to the gym today. I had to abandon what I once called my "home gym" however it wouldn't be the first time, or the last time I had to leave a place I called home. @shaniatwain said last night, "you just gotta keep swinging!"

My anxiety has been really bad while I've been away and I'm still not doing very good today. I have that horrible feeling in my stomach, I keep worrying about things, I feel awful for getting too drunk on Saturday and I'm scared of what I've said, scared I've upset someone. I'm noticing every tiny thing and even though I try to tell myself it means nothing, it keeps coming back to me. My heart keeps beating out of my chest. I feel awful, I hate this. My heads wrecked. I thought I was starting to get some control of my life and now I feel like I couldn't have less control if I tried #mentalillness #mentalhealth #anxietydiary #mystory #persistentdepressivedisorder #dysthymia #generalanxietydisorder #generalisedanxietydisorder #gad #anxiety #sinkingfeeling #struggling #oktosay #anxiety #anxietyawareness #highfunctioninganxiety #highfunctioninganxietyanddepression #livingwithanxiety #livingwithanxietyanddepression #livingwithmentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #livewithit #thisisanxiety #thisismentalillness #thisisanxietyanddepression #highfunctioningdepression #mentalhealthstigma #talk
There are verses in the Bible that say, "Love is patient, Love is kind." It is too much to quote it all here. However, the simplest way to define love is that it is the opposite of selfishness. Because love is the opposite of selfishness, the second gift God gave is the gift of choice. Some might wonder why God allows things like murder, rape and war to occur, but the answer is based on the first gift. Because God loves all equally and love is all encompassing, then to take the gift of choice from one would mean having to take it from all. We are called to emulate God's love. That would mean that we eliminate selfishness and all thoughts of malice toward anyone for anything. It would mean that revenge would be eliminated. However, it does not mean that we have to continue to be around those who do harm to us. I may forgive the snake for biting me, but I will avoid snakes. Still, I will not take revenge and harm the snake. The first step toward forgiveness is to have pity. We pity those who do not know any better than to do harm. We pity those who are lost in selfishness. This is why we are given the statement, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." It means to love even those who do harm to others, and forgive them their ignorance. If they understood love, they could not behave that way. The flip side of this is that because the second gift is choice, that means that my life belongs to me, my body belongs to me, and I get to do anything I want to do with it. When we love as God loves, we do not attempt to force our will and our beliefs on others. We allow each one to choose their own way. There is much that could be sad, but perhaps today I better stop there. #quoteoftheday #love #selfishness #recovery #mentalhealth #oktosay #blogpost #blessings #karlyletomms
Don't let your mind get clogged up with negative thoughts and sad emotions; breathe fresh air into it, talk to people, meditate, exercise, and make it clear again 🌬 . . . . . #mentalhealthmatters πŸ’š#meditate #breathe #exercise #cltherapycentre #positivity #positivevibes #heretohelp #journey #youareimportant #goalsetting #psychology #happiness #cityoflondon #inspire #mentalhealthawareness #bekindtoyourself #lifeplan #oktosay #endthestigma #makethechange #hereforyou #londontherapy #inspire #therapist #makeithappen #bethechange #mindfullness

In the wake of repeated news stories regarding unwanted sexual advances, I thought it might be appropriate to post this again. I have also had the experience of having someone try to force sexual advances on me since being an adult, and experienced inappropriate sexual contact during my childhood. It is interesting to me how some people seem to think that it is okay to violate someone else, and continue to push when a "no" or "stop" has been issued. Men are usually the perpetrators of this, but women do it, as well. I once ended a friendship with a woman because she wouldn't keep her hands to herself after repeated requests for her to stop. When it involves intimidation, corecion, or outright force, it is even worse. It is interesting, how in our society, some people think that it is okay to make continued advances after they have been told "no" or they believe it is okay to corner another person or use the leverage of position, or authority to manipulate sexual contact. It does not have to be sexual either. Stop means stop, and there is no such thing as, "I can't help myself." Some are simply more physicslly affectionate than others, and that is fine unless requested to stop. I have only once in my life felt uncomfortable about being touched with affection. But the bottom line is, no matter who you are, your body belongs to you, and you get to choose who touches you, where, in what way,  and how much. You also get to refuse any unwanted verble advance. Your body, your choice that's how it works. The flip side is we all choose our behavior. There are people I see every day of my life who I feel sexual attractions to, but I don't act on those attractions, or try to push the limit of what I know are the person's boundaries. If I can do that, so can everyone else. We all choose. #quoteoftheday #metoo #boundaries #recovery #mentalhealth #oktosay #blogpost #blessings #karlyletomms

I’m #struggling this morning. I’m meant to be going to #yoga in 45 mins but I’m not sure I can leave the house. As for #overthinking, I only seem to know how to think in one way, #overthinking or nothing. . . . . . #mentalhealthawareness #endthestigma #oktosay #findyourwe #1in4 #imnotokbutthatsok #headstogether #timetotalk #sicknotweak #depression #anxiety #ocd #mentalhealthblogger #blogger #composmentisme
