re-remembering

Life is amazing. And then it’s awful.

And then it’s amazing again.And in between the amazing

and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine.

Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary.

That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life.

And it’s breathtakingly beautiful ..

may life unfold and yield to questions at the right time….

inquiry for today~ remember you can manage and thrive at the same time….

wise counsel in our bones

It is only when we are truly alone, without someone else to lean on, left with our own inner solitude that we can undergo a process of change. The introspection that is needed to bring out the light that has dwindled down to ash and reignite the fire of our being. So let the darkness shape you, let it reform you, let it cradle you and birth you into a new life. Let the spark flame again, in the darkness is where you will find it.

  1. I am simply blown away that I couldn’t sleep, so I got up and went on line and read your post. I have been struggling as a widow with being so alone. I went to college in my home town, so I lived at home until I married my senior year. So until I was 81 when my husband died, I had never really been on my own.. Today, I was wrestling with the thought that I need to truly deal with and accept my loneliness and the insecurity of being alone. That this was my challenge now. and why I can’t sleep. The timing of your posts over several years has often been so on target that it has to be the spirit.

    • Indeed. It’s quite striking how we “know.” I am deeply moved by your inner well Eileen. Courage. Fierce grace. Willingness.
      May you rest and deepen your great care for yourself. With love….thank you….
