How did a week go by without posting? Well, it was necessity as I am currently working very hard on body, mind and spirit, to say nothing of employment itself. I have completed my second week of visits with my new holistic chiropractor, I've returned to the gym, have made a commitment to healthier eating, and I have appointments with other specialists. I'm drinking water until it runs out my ears, taking the suggested supplements, and am trying to be patient with myself day by day. I wasn't going to post today to Rebecca's Haiku my Heart meme, but here I am, last kid at the party.
I created this SoulCollage® card, one of four, on Monday in our monthly SoulCollage® women's group. Gazing at it makes me breathless with memories, but gratitude as well.
Chronic depression has been with me all my life, but is beautifully contained in my senior years. Sometimes I allow myself to look back to some very dark days of my young and middle years juxtapositioned with now. Thank God for all the people have worked with me over my long years. I could never have reached this comfort level alone.
Pain barbs, cactus thorns
Dreaming of light in darkness
Now, shut eyes open.
