• 31 Days { Day 22 } TBT My Journey to Healing

    October 22, 2015KarenBeth

    I thought I would use this day 22 as a THROWBACK THURSDAY, to post a past blog writing that I love: So here goes! I wrote this April 2015, about my healing journey. I thought this post fit perfectly for the place I am in right now. MY JOURNEY TO HEALING {April 18th 2015} This month marks 8 years that I have walked this amazing path of healing in therapy with a wonderful wisdom filled therapist. It hasn’t been an easy 8 years, but it has been a liberating life changing 8 years. 8 years ago, I drove my car…

  • 31 days {day 21} shed light on darkness

    October 21, 2015KarenBeth

    One of the things that my therapist and I have worked so hard on the past couple of months is using my voice as a way to talk about things so that they are no longer in darkness – rather in the light to heal. Yes that’s what therapy is about, but I feel I have been talking about things on a much deeper level in therapy. My therapist has said to me lately “you are talking about things like I have never heard you talking about them before” and I really do get what he means by that, because…

  • 31 Days { Day 19 } ???? balancing truth and grace

    October 19, 2015KarenBeth

    My struggle has always been about choosing between truth and grace. Do I talk about my anger? express my anger? express my true feelings? talk about how I really feel, or do I lead with grace for the protection of others and sometimes the protection of self? It’s a constant battle between using my voice in truth, and or living in silence out of fear! I grew up believing that my anger was wrong, my feelings didn’t matter, I wasn’t allowed to talk about anything, I was silenced and because I grew up with that belief, I always put grace…

  • 31 Days { Day 18 } ???? being open and vulnerable

    October 18, 2015KarenBeth

    As I sit here tonight, I am anticipating my therapy session tomorrow morning, which I don’t normally do as I let it just flow into the morning! – tonight I sit with vulnerability as the past couple of sessions have been all about “being open and vulnerable; talking about how I feel no matter what it is”. and… that has been big and scary – yet healing and relieving! Being in therapy for 8 years now you would think I would have this routine down pat! You would think the anticipation of hard work in therapy would be as easy…

  • 31 Days { Day 17 } ???? back to my roots of writing

    October 17, 2015KarenBeth

    Over the past couple of years I have changed the course of my writing and what I wrote about, and what this blog was about. I began this blog over 6 years ago and my focus in writing was about my journey of healing; to write about my process of healing day to day and I wrote around my therapy sessions. I wanted to give others a view into the world of healing and what my sessions and therapy was about. The good and the hard of healing, and the hope that goes along in that process. 2 years ago…

  • 31 Days { Day 16 } ???? when in doubt, aim high!

    October 16, 2015KarenBeth

    This photo cracked me up when I saw my husband posted it as a joke on Facebook! I laughed and thought it was so cute! The little bunny see’s the window, see’s a way to get out, and yet doesn’t know the distance is too far for his jump! I wonder how many of us fall short of our expectations sometimes! We see something we want, were vulnerable and feel it’s too far to take the jump, it seems so far away to reach at times! This is life sometimes isn’t it? After I had the laugh around this photo,…

  • 31 Days {Day 14 & 15} More Quotes

    October 15, 2015KarenBeth

    As I round up the last 2 days that my company and friend was here visiting, I wrote down some thoughts on both days to post as a part of my 31 days of writing. Now that my friend has gone back home, I have time again to write my 31 days on time. During the visit with my friend, I wrote some more quotes down that I love, and wanted to share as a part of the quotes that I love to find online for inspiration. Here are some quotes I gathered the past 2 days to share, I…

  • 31 Days {Day 11, 12, & 13} – Being GOOD enough!

    October 15, 2015KarenBeth

    I am writing 3 days at one time as I have had a couple of days of downtime, literally, emotionally, and some out of my control. For the past couple of days, my blog server has been down for maintenance off and on and I haven’t been able to update my blog on the time it was up and running, and when I did have time, the network was down. I freaked out at first, but then I let it be okay! It’s good enough that I am working hard to write for the 31 days, and sometimes things are…

  • 31 Days {Day 9 & 10} ???? Connecting with a friend

    October 10, 2015KarenBeth

    I have been a little behind on my 31 days because I have a friend here from out of town that I haven’t seen in 6 years, and she is here for 6 days. Jennifer (JENSHIM) and I have been good friends for over 9 years now, she is from West Virginia so I don’t get to see her as often as I would like; although we talk everyday by text. With me going through the isolation I have gone through the past couple of years, I pushed away a lot of my friends in fear of others seeing the…
