Today I will be open to all possibilities.
Today I will start fresh.
Today I will know that I am worthy of greatness.
Today I will accept my body and thank it for all I am able to do with it.
Today I will take baby steps and say NO to one thing that no longer serves the new me.
Today I will say YES to something nourishing I want in my life.
Today I will stop and notice my breath as it enters, then leaves my body.
Today I will imagine a shield between myself and whatever it is that offends, scares or repulses me.
Today I will imagine a place of safety for myself and my inner child should things get rough.
Today I will know in my heart that protecting myself from what feels bad, is the most loving thing I can do for myself right now.
Today I will know that even without asking for it, I am being supported Spiritually, in ways that I have only dreamt possible.
Today I will know that I can take in that support and know that someone has my back, always.
Today I will know that I am loved a thousand loves.
Today, Thursday, I am new.
What I know today is that I am doing the best I can with what I know at this moment. Listening to my body, getting my needs met and noticing, just noticing issues and problems. After all, the problems are usually not the big deal, it’s the way we FEEL about having a problem – this is the REAL problem.
Today I feel like I’m just watching life unfold. I’m not part of events and moments but just an observer. Dissociation is the order of the day. Now I have a clear choice… I can either beat myself up, try to figure out why, try to be something else (exercise, physical pain, substance, force grounding, etc..) and otherwise DO something about my dissociative state or I can accept that this is the order of the day. If I make it a big honkin deal then I’ve added to the original condition.
Today I will not shame myself, go into role, hide or otherwise catastrophize about what could have possibly taken over my brain and ability to feel deeply. Obviously, I have been triggered. Healthy, normal, life happening, right now, oh well.
And Thank-You, dissociation, my loveliest, oldest companion, for saving my young self from a complete mental breakdown. Happy Friday everyone.
We’ll do anything for a good Mom. When there was so much wrong in our childhoods, we need, now, to reparent ourselves and get what we’ve missed.
Bringing loving kindness to ourselves. Validation. Safety. Feeling comfortable really , deeply being seen. Celebrating our Aliveness. Feeling worthy.
Gift yourself these. Get whatcha need. Fill those holes. Anyways.

Per-fect-shun-is-ummmm. Hmmm, shunning the perfect, the pressure, warped sense of acceptable. No more reliving what we’ve been taught. Release the grip on the torch we’ve carried to keep ourselves in check and appear flawless. Allow the cracks to happen…how else will the light get in?
Do you give thanks everyday for your body? Your amazingly perfect physical-ness? You should! You should express your gratitude for your bones, joints, skin, liver, your feet, your eyesight, your pancreas, your nose, your brain, the hair on your toes, on your head, even parts that hurt, are sick or not exactly making you happy right now. Every organ, every inch of your body. Become aware, today. Become aware of how you choose to treat the miracle of YOU. The miracle of thinking, being, feeling, acting and reacting. Offer it love, give it exercise – whether or not it complains or balks, give it good food – try things you’ve read about and don’t forget the water, generous amounts of water. Say thank you for all the ways you function right now because the more you are aware of your body, the more you will avoid mistreating it.
If just for today…
If just for today we appreciate our commitment to being alive. Continue reading “If Just For Today”
Oh, the rain falling. Reminds me of all the parts of myself that are falling away. Parts that I won’t miss. Continue reading “Cleansing and Clearing”
Always know that you are loved great than your wildest imagination. You are being guided by your highest self, the universe and forces unseen. The What, The Who, the How if your beliefs matters not a bit. We are loved in spite of what we believe about ourselves. Anyway. Anyway.pp Feel loved today. Love how you are loved.
Join the movement and know that you are loved.
Treat yourself as you would a dear, old friend. This realization came as I was harvesting some green beans from my garden for someone else. I was careful to choose ONLY the best for this person, no spots, not too big, not too small…etc., I surprised myself with the care I took to give only the loveliest I had grown. I also noticed that when I gift someone something I’ve made or grown – choosing only the best products, the amount, the presentation, be it a bow, ribbon, bag or gift-wrap… hmmmm, am I treating myself with the same loving kindness? – or do I just get what’s left over? I started to think, am I not worthy of being cherished and honored for my existence, my BEING? Well, the answer is, of course I am worthy of ALL OF IT.
Friday’s affirmation: If just for this moment, if just for today ——–
Treat yourself as you would a dear, old friend.
Give notice to the colors of PLAY on this beautiful Friday. Take in the comfort of the late season blooms. Play in the scents, sights and sounds. Allow joy to rise from within and be recognized, present. The joy of the child who just wants to run, jump, skip, hop.
Honor your inner child, if just for today. Go get him/her.
Meela wearing the colors of a playful September Friday.
Today I am giving a voice to those nasty little gnat thoughts, buzzing around in my noggin. Irritating. Believable. Unbelievable. Continue reading “Nothing Wrong With You”
I make mistakes and I am still worthy of love.
If just for today, just this hour, just this minute. Feel your personal power and a gentle heart that carries it all. True power is useless without a softened heart. I will notice the power and the gentle, resting peacefully in my heart home. If just for today.
Things are always working out for me. My worry, unfounded. I am always receiving the best life has to offer me at any given moment.
Feeling deep gratitude today for this forum. I LOVE BLOGGING. Expressing my intention today, Continue reading “I Love Blogging”
Leaning back into the spacious arms of a luscious Sunday morning. Embrace the beauty in your life.
Today I choose to be awake. I allow the sweet nectar to delight in my soul. The beauty all around me is limitless.
When I took this picture last fall, a warm smile took over my face. It reminded me of a portal, where Fairies and light beings play – visible only through the hard work of a wild, tree drilling, feathered beast. Then, the realization of Mary 5… Continue reading “Mary 5”
