Not much has happened since my last post. My sister had her surgery and is recovering well. I have only called to check-in once and had a brief conversation with my mom while my sister was in the car. All I learned was that she was doing well. Since I haven’t visited my mom or […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 29 – Shifting and Healing"
It’s been a whirlwind since I last wrote. Or maybe whirlpool would be a better word to use being it is related to water and water = emotion. Emotional it has been, that is for sure! The last time I posted much was transpiring in my life. My sister had been sick and going through […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 28 – Open to Love"
I needed to take an extended break and so I did. It is just now that I feel the urge to write and even now I am hesitant because so much still hangs in the air. It would be preferable to write about how everything worked out smoothly and I am on the other side […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 27 – One Card at a Time"
I’ve been hesitant to write but as I began to type this post a familiar childhood nursery rhyme came to mind, “Ring around the rosey, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down”. Specifically the last part – we all fall down – came to me as I began to type the name […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 26 – And it All Falls Down"
Some interesting occurrences to report. An old online friend asked me to go greet a newcomer to her forum. I hadn’t been there in ages but agreed to go welcome him. Maybe a couple of days later my friend informed me that the new member had responded to one of my previous posts from 2015. […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 25 – Take the High Road"
I’ve made some progress since my last post. I hear as I write this, “You made it through the gauntlet.” That’s good news, I suppose, but I sense this is just a reprieve. This morning I am very tired. Even after my morning walk with my dog, Monty, all I want to do is go […]Read more "Part 2: Chaper 24 – Healing Purge"
Since my last post things have been tough. At first I think I was just angry. This quickly turned into depression which them morphed into some major anxiety. I had the worst anxiety attack of my life on August 28th which left me wondering if something is wrong with me physically. The panic increased ten-fold […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 23 – Panic Sets In"
Lots to report since my last post, so here it goes….. I was warned earlier this year that I was headed into a period of “hard work” spiritually. The time frame was around six months starting in March and ending in August around my birthday. As usual, I had no idea what this “work” might […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 22 – Emotionally Simple? Not Me."
I need to post an update since it has been over two months since my last post. Where to start…. Emotionally If I had to summarize how I’ve felt over the past few months I would compare it to a yo-yo or a rollercoaster. Yo-yo is likely more fitting. Up, down, up, down. Back and […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 21 – Yo-Yo"
Lots of activity in the last month. Anxiety The anxiety and panic attacks have stopped. It was gradual at first, so I was uncertain if they had actually gone or if they were taking a sabbatical and would return without notice. Over a week ago my husband left on business again (he is still gone) […]Read more "Part 2: Chapter 20 – Taking It Slow"
