• patiently waiting . . .

    March 18, 2012KarenBeth

    One of the things that I have learned most in this journey of healing is that, “patience” is almost always the key to getting through the tougher moments. This past week or so, I have had a lot of ups and downs. I have had moments of strength and weakness, strength in the weakeness, weakness in the strength, and sitting while still moving. It certainly has been some of the toughest and challenging moments that I have had in a long time; with this past weekend being one of the toughest. Last night I went through one of the hardest 2 O’clock’s…

    Yesterday in session we talked a little about this weekend and what connection looked like. We talked about what it would look like to write about something that wasn’t work, but yet very uplifting and healing in a “resting” kind of way. This morning, I woke up to an email from my therapist, with connecting thoughts, reflecting words about the great hard work this past week has been about. Words with some goodness and some thoughts about our work and going forward, and also wanting to know how my Saturday morning was. It was very uplifting – but then, sitting at my desk, I looked out the window…
