Being in the awesome, sitting with the hard

Yesterday I had a fantastic day. An unexpected, hard-and-good-wrapped-up-in-one day, because I went to a special playdate at Havi’s Playground! Of course. I spent a precious several hours with a small group of lovely local Rally-grad people, in the quiet, … Continue reading

A dialog with my Left Hip

Hello, Left Hip. What’s up? I had a dream about you last night. Nope, not that kind of dream (ooh la la!). The kind that’s more like a message. In it, I could picture a long cord of tendon, reaching … Continue reading

Checking in with the Not-Rightness

How am I feeling? Pretty good — recovered from my cold! But not at home or at rest in my physical self — that is the important thing. (Ahh. It feels so good to admit that!) What is not comfortable? … Continue reading

Interview with Sabotaged Me

My my, I let my Vacationing in the scenic Doldrums post linger for so long without an update, I started to get antsy…especially because not long after I posted it, I took an especially zoom-y trip right out of the … Continue reading

Vacationing in the scenic Doldrums

Taking a cue from Havi (who I am inclined to nominate for the honorific Havi The Apt, ┬ábecause what she writes is always just that: apt!), today I’m exploring some stuckness using these two questions that she used recently: What … Continue reading

Doom, comfort, and stompy boots (a dialogue)

Coming up later this week I have a minor medical procedure…something that I knew I needed to think about carefully and clearly this week. As it so happens, said careful and clear thinking didn’t happen until today, when I realized I’d been sitting around all day worrying and not acknowledging the worry. Emergency clarity needed! Ack! So I sat down to have a conversation with myself. Continue reading

Investigations into this thing called Balance

Today is Day Two of the Balance Expedition and I’m still figuring things out, but I’ve learned a lot so far! Havi wrote about Side Effects today, as a complete coincidence, and it’s so true: I thought I was just going to think about Balance, but as a side-effect I’ve managed to deal with other stuff that I thought was completely unrelated.

Recess, house-building with monsters, and unintended consequences

Part II of the Interrupted Interview

How do I take care of myself when I am in pain and having trouble managing my mental health and still have to take care of a child?

Furthermore, how do I do that when that mental health state comes along with the hard-to-shake belief that I am unworthy of help?

After thinking about these all night, and most of today, I had some thoughts to bring back to the cozy interview we left yesterday… Continue reading
