What is a journey into wellness without obstacles?  I am especially gifted at attracting drama and creating obstacles, and the month of May was certainly no exception.  I started out the month eyeball deep in manure and the dump truck keeps dumping more in my lap.  As I swim through the mess, I am trying to remember to NOT do the things that come so easily to me.   I will not “push my feelings down”, I will not “check-out”, I will not “shut everyone out”, I will not “sleep the pain away”, and I will not “eat my feelings”.  Ok, in reality, I have done some all of those things at various times during this particular journey.  I absolutely have to face each of these issues head on while I live through some of the hardest days of my life.  I have to face these realities the first time so that I can avoid re-living them over, and over, and over again.  It is when life gets hard that we get to find out what we are made of, and I am still trying to figure out what that means for me.  The good news is that I am not alone in this.  Not only do I have a great husband, amazing friends, a skilled therapist, and many other practitioners that help me stay glued together; but I also have my faith and it is STRONG.
