2013 Journal

I am committed to trusting that, when it is time, a new sort-of-monthly or six-weekly Journal "blog" will emerge and be posted here sharing tales of how these earlier learnings are continuing to shape the ways I deal with whatever unfolds in my everyday life.  One of the Rememberings and Celebrations Card will be posted with it.

I stop to sit down, reflect and write only when something deep inside calls me to it. The call is completely unpredictable, though usually it comes late at night and near the end or middle of the month - unless, sigh, it doesn’t because it’s not yet time to step out of the flow and look at it.


The Grandmothers are doing their magic in the world:

From Katrina: “While perusing a stack of vintage postcards purchased from a thrift store, a bookmark fell out: ‘It's important to let yourself make room for you to feel WHATEVER YOU'RE FEELING, particularly when your own mind, or anyone else's, thinks that what you're feeling is unreasonable, extreme, immature, ridiculous, silly, or not like you!’ That was EXACTLY what I've been needing to hear and be reminded of right now. I'm going through some difficult circumstances and I'm often afraid to trust my own intuition and instinct.”

From Kate: “…a mom is sharing the Rememberings and Celebrations Cards with her two daughters, 6 & 9. How amazing to think about what it would have been like to be better equipped, early on, with self trust, boundaries, and awareness? Awesome to consider!”
