No Raw Chicken Soup for You Today

No Raw Chicken Soup for You Today

Writing this post on the last night of September and sending it out on the first day of October.

That’s how my mind is justifying my “September” writing. This month has been incredibly

transformative for me personally after intense Spiritual work (yes, Spiritual work is active,

intense and requires commitment but that’s a subject for another post) and I am still in a

deep space of processing and integrating.

 

So being in a space of writing and outward action has not been my authentic impulse for the

last couple of weeks. And one thing I’ve promised is

Grief: Choose to Dive When You’re Falling

Grief: Choose to Dive When You’re Falling

Do I start with February of this year, do I go back to my childhood as a 9 year old girl or my late teens, back to 10 years ago? Where exactly was the beginning? Even today, I can’t really grasp a “finite” point where my mind can say, “Aha! here it is- HERE is where it began!” And I have to tell you, my mind does not like that. Not. one. bit.

 

Sooooooo, now what? What exactly do I share?
