I was sitting on a train just this morning and caught myself re-living conversations and experiences from the extremely traumatic recent past. This happens several times daily and I can't seem to stop my over active and analytical mind doing this. But, I knew I had to think of positive and happy situations to stop it in its tracks and was struggling somewhat.
Then I remembered the text conversation in my mobile phone between myself and a very special friend of mine whom I affectionately call Debbie Cupcake. Each week, we exchange at least two very uplifting and encouraging texts with no pressure to respond or reciprocate in any hurry, so I decided to read them back to myself and in less than a minute, I was in 'Cupcake Land', feeling all uplifted, satisfied and smiling.
