Saddened by all the hate..

Saddened by all the hate..

I thought after this election was over people would move on go back to trying to live in peace. What I have seen through this election continues. I will not feed into the anger and hatred going around. I will love my neighbor no matter who they...

Feeling sick..

Feeling sick..

I think all the stress and feeling overwhelmed has finally caught up with me. Today my plan is to rest, recharge and take a day to do nothing. I have been fighting a cold and now the sinuses are full blown water works. I am off to make some hot tea...

Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

I am very overwhelmed at the moment and just want to run away and sit by the beach or listen to the waves crash and I have been running around going to my pain management doctor, pharmacy and next to FedEx. But, I needed a moment to breathe. I am...

Here is some virtual beach therapy: http://www.andresamadorarts.com/ He is an artist that creates intricate designs - Playa Paintings - that of course disappear with the incoming tides. I also swear by rain and ocean sounds. They now trigger relaxation responses in me.

This quote from a song is perfect for me today. I will turn 50 in January. I got married to my husband Charles in 2001. We have had our ups and downs as most people do. But, 2016 has been all about taking control and making changes for me. And, if I...

Dawn Kieran, there are a million cliches that I could share with you, but I will refrain. I could say that I understand how you feel. But I don't. But I do understand sinking into that abyss and feel that the weight on your chest is so heavy that you are gasping for air. I understand struggle and I understand pain. Each person's experience is different. You are taking brave first steps - putting how you feel into words. is right. It is cathartic, and I can tell you from my own experience that it does help. I started writing in 2015. My mom had passed away the year before and I wrote from a broken and sad place. But between writing, exchanging stories, and making sure that I made time a certain number of days a week to get out and walk has brought me to a much happier and healthier place in my life. It isn't easy. And some days, it just plain stinks. But I believe that each day is an opportunity. And each day that we fight the fight, we grow stronger. When my husband was diagnosed with Cancer in 2007, some days felt completely overwhelming. On those days, I tackled life an hour at a time. The point is, do what works for you. Even if it is only 10 minutes a day where you take a walk, meditate, or write, expend that energy for you. I wish you well, Dawn.

I can't imagine what that is like, Dawn. I get back pain from sitting all day, and what has helped me is the book and method of Pain Free, by Pete Egoscue. I have a bunch of articles already in the hive, https://www.bebee.com/group/the-egoscue-method. Check out https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/the-best-way-to-prevent-and-heal-chronic-pain and https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/starting-today-you-don-t-have-to-live-in-pain I am not a doctor, so obviously don't go without medical advice... if cleared, this may be worth a try! I sure hope it helps.

Deb 🐝 Helfrich Thank You, I am trying. I am working on my business and controlling the pain. Today was supposed to be a mental day but I have a loan signing at 7pm because extra money is always good especially if your business is just starting out.
