I wish you Enough

I wrote something this morning, kind of by accident that I thought was important. "Until you've had enough, you will continue to go back to what hurts you. I wish you enough." I was paroozing my codependent facebook groups, reading posts, commenting on some.  I don't often write posts on these sites, I'm more of… Continue reading I wish you Enough

Sometimes the betrayal is the blessing

Again, Jaime Sullivan from Cawfeetawk came through!  Sometimes she just says the perfect thing at the perfect time and it resonates in ripples.  See the video here. I started this blog with the intention of rediscovering my gratitude.  This blog is my therapy and my healing.  This blog is MINE.  I have grown, I have rebuilt… Continue reading Sometimes the betrayal is the blessing

Adversity

I heard a beautiful quote this week; Adversity introduces us to ourselves.  That hit me straight between the eyes, because it's true. There have been many times throughout my life that I've faced major adversity, more than I care to go into in this blog - I like to keep these writings at around 700-750 words so we… Continue reading Adversity

Grief isn’t linear

Have you ever taken a trip that was linear?  Non-stop from one point to another.  I don't mean your morning drive to work kind of trip, I mean a meaningful trip that has the potential to create changes and memories. A road trip across multiple states for example.  They are rarely non-stop and they often… Continue reading Grief isn’t linear

Cleaning Therapy

 When I first moved out into my own place and was setting up solo housekeeping last December, I was in the early stages of grief.  When I am stressed, agitated, anxious, or just hyper I have discovered that cleaning, purging and organizing are my best friends.  So I got into the habit real quick of doing… Continue reading Cleaning Therapy

Finding my way back to Gratitude

I feel like it's been a minute since I've moved through life with a sense of gratitude.  I used to have something I called a Blessings Jar.  It was an empty mason jar that I kept on my desk, and when something happened that was a blessing; either to me, or someone else, I would jot… Continue reading Finding my way back to Gratitude

Messages, Tests & The Plan

You may be surprised to learn that my 20 year marriage, you know...the one that just imploded 9 months ago wasn't my first marriage.  Back in 1989 I eloped just 8 days after high school graduation to Las Vegas with my then boyfriend....lets be honest, my drug dealer...and was married in a tiny chapel on… Continue reading Messages, Tests & The Plan

No Contact

I never know what is going to inspire me to write on a subject.  I got home earlier today from my Girlfriend Getaway mini-vacation and am really tired, possibly a little (more than possibly) hung over, so even though I thought about trying to write something for the blog, I hadn't been hit by the… Continue reading No Contact

Gaslighting & Boats

I started to write about Gaslighting this morning, and I spent about an hour on it, but it just wasn't feeling right.  It wasn't sounding like my voice.  So I scrapped it.  But the topic is an important one and I felt it was something I wanted to share. Gaslighting for those who aren't familiar… Continue reading Gaslighting & Boats
