I promised that I'd keep in communication - although this isn't much an update. I am grateful to be coming out the other side of a bad symptom flare, that also awakened the beasts of depression, anger, resentment....and emotional reactivity! But as my physical symptoms begin to calm - so do my emotions. Thank GOD!! While I am still not feeling well enough to jump back into hours of studio time or going out to facilitate workshops just yet - I am well enough to get some little things done. When I can't be going after the bigger components of those "vision board dreams," I need to ask myself: "What resources do I have right now. What abilities has God given me at this very moment? What is right in front of me that I CAN do?" I find that asking myself this question helps me stay out of "total failure" mode. I know it's so very hard when circumstances and limitations interfere with one's dreams and timelines. I know it's super easy to want to throw in the towel when things get hard. I totally get it! If you are in that place today, I'd like to encourage you to take a break if needed. Throw in that towel (for a brief moment) if that's what you need. But please come back to a place of asking yourself what you can do, with what you have, at this particular moment. Then pick up the dang towel and do it! Those baby steps will eventually add up!
