I just have to share this with you!

For weeks, the "e" key on my computer stopped working. I put off getting it fixed, and when I finally focused on doing that - I was four days out of warranty and looking at a $900 repair.

I procrastinated getting the help I needed and instead overcompensated by cutting and pasting in "e's" when I typed (yes, it was THAT nutty and labor-intensive!)

Inspired to add more music to my life and remember to add more loving care for myself, I started to journal. Here's what I wrote, and here's what happened. It's a miracle! :-)

My Precious,

I see you, My Love. I truly do. And I’m so sorry I stay too busy to spend time with you.

I see how patiently you wait, as if you have no right to:
      ask for what you need.
      be angry that you are being marginalized and ignored.
      be seen and acknowledged for who you are and all you share

You are a Light, Sweetheart, a light in this world and a light in my heart.

The Power of Forgivness - We are all Super Heroes!

The Power of Forgiveness

I go see every Super Hero movie. The latest one was Wonder Woman, and I even took my seven year old granddaughter —before I realized it was PG! (Sorry, Maisie, for having to cover your eyes sometimes!)

The reason I wanted her to see it was because Wonder Woman stood for the Power of Love — which is a good message to share.

I wanted her to know we are all Super Heroes, with infinite strength to create what we want. And I think one of our best super-powers is the Power of Forgiveness.

 

LOVE NOTES - JULY NEWSLETTER

The Power of Surrender is the subject of my LoveNote this month. Surrender is often the most empowering choice we can make. 

Self Care in Relationships.

My Will

My computer cord is at the office and I only have 9% battery. Kind of a metaphor for starting my EXQUISITE SELF CARE mode today.

If I don’t make the time to RECHARGE, I’m continually running on empty - with only fumes to take me where I want to go.

I will get my cord, go to the Botanic Gardens, enjoy nature, breathe, allow myself to BE. (Please join me on my guided meditation here.)

SELF in Mediation - IFS and SELF-leadership

SELF in Mediation

(from a Mediation Training in 1998)

My twenty-one year old daughter (who is now 40) recently called me at the end of her first year of her doctoral program in psychology to tell me she really didn’t want to be a psychologist. She wanted a profession in which there would be one right answer and not so many possibilities. Worried that she was going to switch to law school, I mentioned that even in law, you can argue two sides. And her response was, "Yes, but there are only two." And I thought to myself, she should never go into mediation.

On some existential level, I think she was trying to make sense out of this world. And the more she was learning, the more confusing it all seemed. And I thought to myself, the more confusing it seemed, the more she is learning about the world, and it’s in the acceptance of that confusion, we have the freedom to choose our version of reality. Kind of like mediation.

I hope you have the relationship you desire and deserve. Do you ever have challenges that feel difficult to overcome?

When you experience conflict with your partner or spouse, it is often not what you are saying but how you are saying it that can cause problems.
