I wrote a post about a movie called Love Happens quite a while ago. I ran across the movie again today and thought reposting this was poignant, considering the current social climate we find ourselves in. I’m totally over psychobabble, & let’s face it, it’s everywhere we look. The “soul whisperers” are a dime a dozen and have mastered the role of “playing” the expert, often while their own lives are busting at the seams with ignored dysfunction, all while leading others to believe they have it all together. I crave vulnerability… real, authentic people who are not afraid toRead More...
What we long for is to be unconditionally loved by that one who sees something special in everything about us. This is not someone who is blind to our shortcomings, but rather one that sees our perfect imperfection and chooses to love us in both our darkness, as well as our light, knowing that deep level of love is what will draw that darkness out and help heal it. The heart longs for that one committed to walk side by side through the fires, companionship in both joyous and treacherous parts of the journey, and deepened levels of communication andRead More...
I find that my life of late seems to be a series of episodes that involve emotional turmoil regarding things I have managed to neatly tuck away in the depths, so as not to experience the emotional discomfort associated with them. Yes, OK, fine… Let’s call it what it is, DENIAL! That is then followed with the unpleasantness of exhuming such, experiencing and then accepting the lessons that came with these less than preferable episodes. Then, just as I no longer can fathom the possibility of an increase in my emotional overwhelmedness and discomfort, I experience the freedom, lightness andRead More...
We are all products of our environment and our upbringing plays an enormous role in how we interpret and respond to situations in our lives, physically, emotionally and spiritually. But what about how we respond to ourselves? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies waging war in that battlefield of our mind. Guilt and conviction are two areas that are often misinterpreted and can turn into a whipping post of sorts, if we are not able to process through and resolve the issues at hand, as well as recognize the origin of the emotions. Many do not recognize theRead More...
Quite some time ago, one of my oldest, but most comfortable pair of jeans got snagged. I must have rubbed up against something sharp unknowingly, which pulled a thread and caused a small snag. It was no big deal really, just one little thread, not even sticking out very far, but I still noticed it. I tried pulling the thread through to the inside of the jeans, so the default wouldn’t be visible from the outside. Chances are, no one would have ever noticed it from that point forward. No one except me, that is! I found every time IRead More...
This is so true. There’s a very false belief that if we allow ourselves to feel uncomfortable or painful emotions, it will be more than we can handle. So we stuff them down, deep inside, hidden away, never to see the light of day, yet they don’t ever disappear as we hope. They fester and continually rise to the surface to be met with being pushed down again. A vicious cycle that never resolves anything and adds synergistically to the decline of our health and happiness. Oh that we would embrace the idea that it’s ok to not feel comfortableRead More...
