“Sometimes just explaining your predicament--
to a bartender, a priest,
the old woman in a shift and flip-flops
cleaning the lint traps in the Laundromat dryers
--is all it takes to see a way out of it.”
It has been four years since I wrote my year-long class
That class came about at a time when
my world crumbling down around me.
I was drowning in despair.
I found myself wanting to sleep
and hide from the world.
And I did.
I sat on my couch, mindlessly watching television
wishing I was anywhere in life but where I was.
My Heart ached.
My stomach churned.
And I swore with everything that once we got out of the mess
it would never happen again.
Yet, here I am today.
Sharing with you.
Being honest with myself.
We are here.
The same panicked feelings.
The churning stomach.
The aching Heart.
And I am mad.
I am depressed.
I find myself sitting on the couch.
In the morning I don't want to get out of bed.
Yet, I tell myself everyday that we are going to be okay.
And we are.
I know that.
I have decided it's best to go where I KNOW I will find Peace.
Creating uplifting art
Long walks outside
Spending time with family and friends
And in the end...it's those things that matter the most anyway.
Another way I know is best for ME to get out of my slump is to write.
I have been beyond BLESSED this past week!!
For 5 years I wrote a weekly column in our local newspaper.
I have been asked to start that up again and am THRILLED!
Writing allows me to see my situation differently.
Writing is something that makes me dig deep into my Soul and see the very best in my situation.
It also inspires me to inspire YOU.
Soooo....I have decided to share a FREE workshop with you coming this September...
"Embracing the Simple Life".
More details coming later in the week.
I encourage you to check out "52 Weeks Being Me".
I am so proud of that class and all the lives it has touched!!!
