    Hey community!

    Yesterday was great - on day 2 of the SEP I completed the Program Commitment form and I set yesterday, 6/30/15, as the date I would do my favorite walk that I used to do weekly. It's about a 3 mile walk from Manhattan and over the Williamsburg bridge. I was a bit anxious, but I used all the tools I've been learning, mostly self talk, and I did it! I did have some pain here and there, but the walk was great and I enjoyed it. Last night I felt amazing and I awoke this morning feeling even better, although a little sore considering I hadn't done that walk in over 6 months (but not sore in the area of my TMS, so that's a real good sign!).

    I really think it's setting in and everyday it seems the fear is diminishing. I'm going to set the goal of doing that same walk once a week! I am SOOOOO grateful for this website, this community and this program...it really is changing my life. Who'd of thunk that journaling was the answer???? Wow, simply amazing.

    Hi, Kev. Congratulations on that wonderful long walk. You made up your mind that you could do it, and you did it!

    I hope everyone sees your post today. It is so inspiring.

    I'm glad to learn that you found journaling to be so important in your TMS healing.
    Self-discovery is fantastic! I learned more about myself by journaling in the SEP than I did in the first 82 years of
    my life, and I am 85 now and know myself even better.
