Who Am I, truly?

Caught up in a web of confusion

I have decided that life is like a wash cycle.

Imagine for a second that childhood through teens is the wash, rinse, and spin cycle. During this time society attempts to make us all "smell" (or become) the same... rules, behavior, etc. Then adulthood arrives and we get tossed into the tumble dryer, forced to explore, mix and mingle. . . .

Get up, Get dressed, Get out!

Time for a System Re-boot

This morning I was feeling stuck.

Totally immobilized from stress overwhelm. There were a zillion things I should have been doing but the stress took top billing. All I could think was to call on the wisdom of my mother-in-law.

And her advice?

Get up, Get dressed, Get out!

It was that simple. So I did.

Resilience

Today I am practicing,

Resilience.

Throw at me all you got.

Belittle my quirks. Undermine my abilities. Tread on my polite demeanor and quiet disposition. Even scoff my logic.

So please, go ahead...

I'm stronger than you think.

It made no sense. A bag of candy and . . .

In your darkest hour.

When hope is illusive and dreams unreachable. When your window to the world is tear smeared and everything you do ends in vein.

Pull down the shutter. Shut out the world.

Breathe.

Live that moment . . .

The Inbetween

Today I am practicing,

Patience.

Living in the in-between takes a lot of patience. But there is no such thing as "happily ever after" without some trial and tribulation. Therefore I'm learning to embrace these moments, capture and live them fully. Because soon they will be gone.

I wonder, as I often do these days,

A New Adventure

Down the rabbit hole I go

New chapter, new adventure...

These past few months have been like falling down a bottomless rabbit hole, hoping to one day land and start our new life.

My hubby and I moved from New Jersey to New Orleans to work on a movie. We uprooted our lives, he quit his job, and we left our apartment vacant. Our intention to set up shop in Louisiana. . . .
