Being Okay With Not Being Okay

I asked God what it was that I was missing as I was “doing the work” and yet felt so unhappy. My message was “to be okay with not being okay.” I needed to accept that sometimes it really is OKAY to not be okay. This year has had more than its share of heartbreaks,Continue reading “Being Okay With Not Being Okay”

The Antidote to Fear

When we bury, push against or deny our fears, we ultimately give them more power. Our fears then unconsciously control us, keeping us from peace. That is, until we choose to face our fears. Our willingness to face our fears is the first step. Fear is held in place by holding our breaths, and contractingContinue reading “The Antidote to Fear”

Feeling Betrayed

It stings the eyes, it burns the chest. There is a disconnect when one feels betrayed. The moment comes when we feel that someone else did not honor us. Perhaps a boundary was overstepped, we were pushed too far. Or that the boundary was completely obliterated, as if it had never existed. I don’t knowContinue reading “Feeling Betrayed”

Overcoming emotional turmoil

My Dearest Friend, Overcoming emotional turmoil is about knowing that we are stronger than our emotions.  As children we are taught to fear our emotions,  to push them down,  aside,  away… anywhere but here, maybe we’ll deal with this later, we were taught.
