Success

What significance is worldly success if one’s home devoid of peace, health, and love?

Placebo Effect

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself.  What we think and say to ourselves matters more than we know.  The placebo effect is real and scientifically proven.  It does come in a pill, but it is also available free of charge by just using the brain.

Healing Deeper

There are undoubtedly many stages and layers of healing, but I find most interesting about these six stages is the last one, Maintenance. It involves returning to the earlier stages to continue healings. As I look at these six stages, I see myself in each one, and part of me wonders why the healing is taking so long. I realize now that I’ve returned to the earlier stages, several times, and my healing is ongoing. It is deeper now than ever before.

What do you do for fun?

I remember struggling to think of something I enjoyed doing or even something I’d like to do. I didn’t do anything for fun, and I felt embarrassed. So much of my life is focused on the task of making others happy that I lost myself. Fun is still something a bit foreign to me, but I’m learning to enjoy parts of my life again. I’ll get back there, in time.

Keep Going

This quote by Confucius is so very true. Everything, no matter how seemingly unimportant, contributes to the whole. Some days, just getting out of bed is the only goal accomplished, but at least I’m no longer in bed. Forward movement, towards a better place, takes many small steps.
