Tidbit: Breathe in, Breathe out. Survive.

I'm here. I seem to be in another one of my dark places. It is so easy to fall into the overwhelmed story, and then I lock up, and don't get anything accomplished, even fun things. But today, I refuse to use depression as an excuse, so will just focus on where I am going, not where I have been. I will not look at what is not done, but focus on what I will do. Today I move and breathe in the sunshine air. I will drop my son off at school, run errands with my daughter, and pop in to hug my mother. Then I will come home and do the dishes and some laundry, and head to the studio, which is (as always, sigh) in need of a deep cleaning and some organizing. Tonight, we will eat a healthy meal and laugh together. My dude will call me from Boise and I will tell him about my day, and I will smile.

I do have a few posts started with pictures, not as much art content as I would like, but I will try to get those up soon. Thanks for hanging in.

You an I are alike in many ways. I just crawled out of under the last rock that hit me.

Hang in there!

Ah, darn, I'm sorry this part of life season has come to stay wiht you for awhile. I will hold the vision of the veil of darkness lifting, and revealing the joy filled wholeness that is really your true essence.

Knowing you journey is perfect, and beholding your light,

P :)

Sorry you've been having a hard time. Hugging your Mom should help, I know just getting to see my Mom helps me when I'm having a hard time.

Sounds like you're off to a great start - keep going, one breath at a time - wishing you a great day!

Mama P:
I am glad to know you are coming out of your dark place- funny how we put ourselves there, isn't it?

Sweet Pamela: I have been in the dark place for long periods of time, and just didn't want to go there this time, so I will have you know, I ripped the damn veil off yesterday (feels more like it was truly this morning though- I think I wallowed a bit yesterday)! I choose joy! Loving you.

Andie: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim. ((((Hugs))))

Bridget: I love that mama hugs work when you are 42 as well as they do when you are 8. She can always tell I need a good long one because I don't let her go right away- powerful mama love heals much.

Sarah: Thanks! And I want to tell you that you are an inspiration to me- you do so much art, even with a little in the house!!

Mindy: Cool! Just for me! Very nice, and I love that you are surrounded by family- I miss that!

THanks all, today is a new day, and I choose it!

Oohoo! Off with the berka baby :)

Yae for your powerful choices. I love it that we are learning we can create the experience we really want, moment by moment.

Cheering you on,
