Rescue

Just about two weeks after we survived Hurricane Harvey, the east coast, primarily Florida, is preparing for an equally catastrophic hurricane.  Irma. My ex-husband lives in what currently is the projected path of Hurricane Irma and I am finding myself fighting the urge to save him.  I have the almost annoying, irresistible urge to make sure he's ok,… Continue reading Rescue

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

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

Compassion Fatigue

Today was a challenging day in my professional life.  I felt like I just got hit with one person or situation after another who needed my help, my compassion, direction or just an ear to listen.  At the end of the day, I left feeling really spent and very fatigued. Anyone who works in the… Continue reading Compassion Fatigue

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

Learning to Adult

You might wonder, "Wendi, how didn't you know that your husband hadn't been working for two months? How didn't you notice that the bills weren't getting paid?" I'll tell you, because I did what so many other women...and men do, we leave the finances, bank accounts, saving and bill paying up to our partners.  Why?… Continue reading Learning to Adult

Feeding the need

It's a lazy Sunday morning and I've walked the dog, brewed some coffee and settled back in bed for some internet surfing (do they still say that?) and catching up on Social Media.  One of the things I like to do is catch up on some of the codependent recovery Facebook pages I belong to. … Continue reading Feeding the need
