It took me a lot of strength for me to just quit my job a year ago. I didn’t really have a plan but I knew I had to make a change. I am so grateful I did. My health is better, my outlook on life has completely changed and I have found so many amazing people to share my journey with. My fear is whether I can really develop into the caring, loving, person I want to be. This morning I woke up with gratitude, sang a few songs and off to the gym. Then went to the Veterans Day Parade and said “Thank You” to those who served our country. It’s a beautiful sunny day here so I am going to give myself some love and soak up some sunshine.
Greetings beautiful Soul Peeps
Thanks so much for the beautiful sharing
An obstacle for me has to do with the layers of fear and shame I contend with. Without going into the “story”, at a very young age, feelings of fear, guilt and shame have layered within me
Recent work I have engaged in with other women of like circumstances has begun the peeling away of the layers.
Today, I ventured out of my comfort zone to both help and be helped by others in my community. The ability to accept the need for and to actually receive help with a grateful heart is an enormous stretch for me.

The realization that I am my biggest obstacle. I will overcome my lack mentality. I have started purging within my space again and getting back under control. I started that yesterday before seeing today’s challenge. It is all part of learning to let go of what no longer serves me and the future me!
I have had to overcome the fear that my depression is coming back every time I have down time.
I have overcome being self centered as well as not liking myself at all by gratitude for sensing all my pain and tender places as they appear to me. I am so grateful for the compassion this has taught me, self compassion and compassion for all beings. Sometimes I still get a little blue, but even then I don’t criticize others or get angry. My son was very rude to me on the phone this morning. I didn’t get angry , just a little hurt which I can work with to carve out more compassion by really feeling it without blame. I have just done, and already the blues are almost completely gone. I am grateful for all of you teachers in this tribe.
That is wonderful news Kaya, awesome. Lots of love Carol xx
