Or not!! Either way, here I am! Its been a while since I posted anything. Its been …. eventful!
I just returned from the second of four classes this year, the second year of the two year certification program for Eden Energy Medicine. It was amazing, as always and as expected!! Then I went to California, Napa Valley area, to visit my oldest daughter. Also an amazing 5 days! That area is majestic! And the redwood forest is simply magical!! I think I could live there 🙂
Its nice to get away from reality for awhile… Isn’t it? Or am I the only one? I don’t think I am.
So, this brings up a point of consideration for me in this journey to find and Be My True Self. How do I create a life, a reality that I don’t need to “get away from”. Saying this reminds me that a very dear friend said this exact thing about where she is in her life right now, she’s worked hard for it.
So, as I review the smatterings of things that have presented themselves for my consideration upon my return… in other words all the stuff that smacked me square in the face and dropped me like a rock back into the reality of my existence… I am faced with some decisions. What do I make a priority and what do I let go of?
At first this was really hard for me to see. As I was recounting to a friend, listing out all the things I am doing, I became so overwhelmed, instantly, that I burst into tears and wanted to curl up in a ball or sit in the corner! I was very tempted to just shut down (which is my usual) and wall myself away from the world. But I didn’t!!
Yay ME!!! I faced all of this (after my little pity party) and just simply decided what to focus on in this moment (the only one I have) and started knocking stuff out. I got frustrated along the way, but when that happened I vented to a friend and did what I could and then moved on.
I got all the auto bill pays that were connected to a now defunct debit card (my bank sent me a new card while I was away and said that the old one was compromised, so I needed to track down all the auto bill pays and enter the new card information) over to the new one, did what I could about the insurance, and got client appointments scheduled and rescheduled for this week, and I threw some fish in the oven to bake today so I would have something to take this week to work for lunch/dinner.
So, as I sit here writing this there is still a laundry room piled high with things that need laundering, a basketful of clothes (from vacation) that need put away (I fold and hang things as they come out of the dryer, to reduce wrinkles… wish that worked on my facial wrinkles… hmmm), a house that needs cleaning from top to bottom, a garage full of things that need a new place to live, lunches to pack for my lunch this week , some phone calls to make, grass to be mowed…. I can’t even think of all the other things that would like my attention.
But, rather than do any of that, I decided to write this blog and after running to the store to get something to eat for dinner, I think I will paint… a painting, not the walls of my house (which also need to get done before I can sell my house).
So, here’s to progress on this journey to Be My True Self! Listening to what my True Self wants and needs rather than what the world tells me!!
