SYLPHIAN LONGING ~
She walked the moonlit caves
In dreams trudged on reality
Her ethereal glow recasted in lakes
That overflowed with bloods of royalty

Her hair blew in the wisps of dusk
Her silhouette hardly verisimilitude
She foretold of the shadows to come
Of broken souls and disloyal truths

Her heart longed for the pieces of her soul
Lost in the multitude
Of barren lies and unkempt promises
As she embraced her cold solitude
How appearances deceive and disguises reveal
The shaken faith in our forgotten homes
As we leave the comfort of kind
In fernweh of buried bones

Time had bred cobwebs
Around her hearts desires
What once was comfort
Now had her mind sired

She willed to break free
From the wraiths of dead humanity
But the fog of her wailing self
Couldn't rise her from the books credibility

And so, pens bled feverishly
To keep her torn soul alive
Writers lost in trance
Blind that her spirit had long died
She walked undead on moonlit terrains
And drowned in lakes again
But the Sylph couldn't be brought to life
Once she had died in her artist's eyes
Now trapped in her bretherens bones
She could only live through her readers voice

Are you saying NO to something that could be amazing? —


My all time favorite teaching of Marianne Williamson’s is that in every No— you find both Love and Fear.
In NO there are two directions
Love and Fear. —


What I’ve learned...
It’s not as easy as you think to tell the difference.
The ego will have you thinking it’s out of love when it’s definitely out of fear. The mind will have you thinking it’s out of fear when it’s entirely out of love. —


Williamson’s teaching stuck with me because when I really looked at why I was saying no to rare gifts, people, and opportunities I realized fear was ruling my NOs (and a lot of the time I had convinced myself it was love).


NO because
The fear that I would hurt or ruin. The fear that I would want freedom. The fear that I wouldn’t be wanted or do a good of enough job. The fear I wasn’t enough. The fear of the unknown. The fear that I’d regret my choice. The fear I wasn’t ready. —

I’ve found a better way when deciding whether I’m coming from fear or love. Expansion or contraction. The energy of love VS the energy of fear. —

Now I ask, does this [ NO ] feel expansive, curious, deep, enlivening, connected?? Or does this NO feel cold, selfish, closed-off, and emotionally removed?? —


I only go for the enlivening NOs these days. Hope you found this insightful in your decision making process. Always looking for more ways to hear the deeper path and wisdom of the soul.
Love to you #beautyhumans! .

I’m breathing.
I suck in one shallow huff of oxygen after the other.
In.  Out.
In.  Out.

If I can keep the air moving in my lungs,
No one will see behind the mask I wear.
The sun kisses my face with ice-cold lips.
The summer breeze trails fire-hot caresses to revive frozen, dead flesh.
I've no spark left in me to rage against the night,
to claw my way through the packed earth
until my cracked and bleeding hands break the surface.
The light in me once lit the darkness to shimmering brilliance.
It was smothered so long ago that even its memory is barely a flicker.
Your lips dripped honey-coated vinegar leading me to the deep grave you dug for me.
Still as death I lay,
an easy target for the loose soil from your shovel to drip onto me.
The dirt got higher and higher with each passing day until the darkness closed in,
until silence was my only companion,
until my own voice inside my head was a hated, miserable sound.
Numb, I am an automaton.
I move with a mechanical heart that feels nothing.
Nothing but the silence you left in me,
with wind echoing around the empty walls of my mind.
Nothing but the steady beat of my mechanical heart.
Nothing but the huffs of air through my lips that suck in grains of dirt with each pass.
Nothing but the thud of dirt hitting earth and flesh.
I used to envy Dorothy with her steel will and determination,
but lately I fancy myself the Tin-Man.
Surely it’s better to live without a heart,
live without that fragile traitor that burns pain across my flesh,
than it is to let that heart keep me captive
to be slowly buried alive.

For a lot of people the sun coming out is great! They feel recharged in the sun, their moods lift and they spend a lot more time outside.

I'm the total opposite. The sun drains me. Sunny days = more people out and about = an even more anxious grace.

I definitely start doing all of my shopping online when the sun starts making an appearance. I find my motivation dips even more than usual and my eating routines do a runner. So I'm taking precautions this time with scheduled online shops and written meal plans.

Demi bought a portable fan for work. I've already stolen it.

I feel this whole other person trying to escape,
He keeps returning,
Every direction I’m turning,
Check the bars are secure,
Whispering his lies,
With my hands tied,
Reminding me of my trauma,
Flashing the memories in my dreams,
Covering my body with his cream,
Who am I ?
Freezing my personality,
I’m not sure what is reality,
I feel this whole other person trying to escape.

This is the uncomfortable truths!

1 patient, 1 survivor, 1 caregiver at a time....we're showing that writing, visualization and meditation are powerful tools for emotional release and well-being. Thanks, Susan G. Komen of North-Central AL for having me! #susangkomen #writingworkshop #writingtherapy#wordxpressbreastcancersupport #breastcanceradvocacy #meditation #visualization

Today's discussion on the mind/body connection and emotional wellbeing with breast cancer survivors at the Susan G. Komen Lunch N' Learn was right on time. (Little did I know a meditation and yoga instructor and Zen practitioner were in the room!😁) We did 2 writing activities: shifting from negative to positive thinking and a meditation to acknowledge and release negative emotions from the body! #susangkomen #writingtherapy #writingworkshop #mindbodyconnection #breastcanceradvocacy #breastcancersupport #WXbreastcancersupportprogram #emotionalwellbeing

Yesterday I sat in the BioLife parking lot and had a raging panic attack. The tears kept coming and I let them fall as people walked by. I still had my earphones in and this song played loudly, blocking out my sobbing.
Why was I having a panic attack in a public place? I had caught a glimpse of the number on the scale while donating plasma and held in the tears during donation but as I walked to my car they stung my eyes and then the flood gate broke. It's not about the number. It really isnt. But it's so much easier to focus on that. To blame it. To obsess about it. And so I sat falling apart in my car; knowing I would still eat dinner because I know too much to let Ed back in.

@introvertdoodles got it pretty spot on! I will do whatever it takes to avoid contact outside, and I shrink to the size I feel when I'm around people that I don't know or trust.

But at home I recharge! I feel great. My hobbies are all home-related. I feel relaxed and safe, and more importantly I feel like me again.

This is from one of my first art journals and when I was still healing from an abusive relationship. Staying in an abusive relationship is an addiction for an empathetic person and can lead to illness if prolonged. I blurred some of the writing but I’m not ashamed because the things that happened no longer define me. I’ve learned to let go and to forgive. I’ve also learned that when a person hurts another person that is a reflection of how that person feels about himself and not my fault. I used to blame myself but with a super therapist and supportive loving husband (yes, second marriage) and great friends I’ve found healing and strength. Thank God for these people and supports and the ability for the heart to heal. While I’m aware some never get over this sort of thing especially when they’ve been trough a traumatic life threatening trauma like cancer and then to be abused as well. Life is a journey and friends, you can choose happiness and choose a better life. If someone is hurting you don’t take on their illness. Get the facts and know what your dealing with and know your worth. And I’m here if you need to talk. If you’ve read this all the way through, thank you for checking out my art and your time here. Much ❤️

This morning I woke up thinking about the goals I have for my life, and the path that I'm on right now to taking them. This year has been my best year thus far in discovering myself, my passions, and allowing myself to live fully. I encourage you all to patient with yourself because your dreams and passions will soon become your reality. #keeppushingforward #dreams #aspirations

Today I’m going to make a handful of small journals! Who’s in?!

✒️Do you feel a rush of adrenaline and your heart beating faster when you sit down in front of a blank sheet of paper? .
✒️Is panic taking over when you face the idea of writing about your feelings?
.
✒️It's ok. Just start writing different words, start forming sentences about what you see around you, how your day went. Just get used to the practice of writing.
.
✒️Then start with "I am feeling..." and see what comes up. If you need to take a break, do so. You will eventually get to the point of feeling that rush of adrenaline turning into a strong desire to get it all out.
.
✒️Let it go. Open the door and let the pain, the struggle, the emotions fly out. Write them down. And then make a last effort and look at them. They are no longer inside. They can no longer hurt you...
