Day#2 Writing Myself Whole: As I Let Go

This time last year, I was dealing with so much loss. Life was slowly eating away at me. I told myself if I was to survive, I would need to make mental- changes. For me, that’s getting back to the basics. And dragging my kids along for the ride. Hoping they’d be better too.

 There’s still much work to be done. A few days ago, I was sitting in a meditative state. When  I heard a whisper  “there’s nothing eating you.” As I opened my eyes, I looked around, no one’s in the room. That’s when I knew the changes I’m making are bringing in this new way of being. As I let go of old habits, becoming more aware of unwanted cycles. Embracing what is, the things I can’t change. Releasing old ideas that no longer serve me. I give myself permission to relax, I give myself permission, that it’s okay to feel everything, and it’s okay to let everything be as it is.  As I now, let go. I give myself permission to let the light carry me.    

Some things are changing…

All of my past eczema, itchiness has cleared up. I’m not as restless as I used to be, my A -personality type can finally relax. Woo-sah!

Here’s My list of six things that’s working for me: 

* keeping an email journal by writing an email to me (no more excuses of not keeping a journal)

* pause before each next thing taking three to five breaths in the car, in the kitchen, etc.

* playing the old inspirational- spirituals brought my soul back from a dark place

* stay on a clean eating path – for me no sugar, no coffee, no junk,

* family time, and time for myself – that includes healing movements 

* And trading in my yelling for a few Woo-sah, throughout the day (parents’ you understand)

Taking in that first catch of rays on the rise.

 A  glimpse of gratitude of surprise, 

Yes it’s true! 

my eyes, behold such a splendor,

entire skies, kiss night away 

a drink of  drinks’ bluish -of holy taste.

A  bow to my head to honor this day,

lifting the moral burdens of those –

suffering, I pray. 

may it be so, a life so full, 

pouring out its’ own release

may it be so,

rolling- waves of miracles to those in need 

warm arms of comfort,

fields of love and safety  

surround us all 

may it be so,

may it be so,

    I’m always delighted to hear of someone who has managed to turn their inner world around by changing one’s thoughts and practicing various forms of self-care and therapy! We are our own best therapists sometimes because we know exactly what resonates within us! It’s an ongoing process, not a one and done! Keep going!! Keep inspiring others!

    Bravo and good for you Krissy. No one can do this for you. Oh we can be encouraged and inspired, but when push comes to shove, it’s all within you to change you. Continue to embrace yourself knowing that you are better than you were, as you reprioritize the things that matter the most. You can’t help anyone else if you don’t fix yourself first. Looks like you’re off to an AMAZING start!!! 🏃🏽‍♀️💖🤩

    Practical theology (Sacrificed, Transformed, Renewed in the mind – Romans 12:1-2) on poetic wheels.
    Not depending on your own, but Spirit-led from within.
    Bravo, Sister Krissy.

    I feel very blessed and grateful to witness you sharing some of your life and open feelings in your posts these last few days. Your beautiful words are like a window to your soul. I’m so glad your new change of pace benefits you and your children so much, and I admire your self-discipline to do this. We have to do the work on ourselves to enable us to be of help and service to others. Taking a few breaths before tackling something challenging is an excellent way to calm the mind and gather your thoughts before taking any action. I used to meditate every day but haven’t done so for quite some time. Perhaps, I should ‘take a leaf out of your book’ and pick up my practice again. Thank you so much for sharing this post – it’s truly inspiring. 💖❣💖

    Thank you for sharing your list of six things that are working for you. Some of them I’ve fallen away from (like listening to a particular songwriter that I like) and some I can pick up (like breathing before each new thing). It’s a blessing to be journeying with you toward fullness of life and wholeness of being. 💕
