Letting the pot simmer

Monday, August 19, 2013

Thank you to my amazing Spark friends for all your support, encouragement, and thoughtful responses to yesterday's blog. At this moment, I am not going to be able to properly respond to you personally as I would have liked to do. I have company coming for a few days and Sparking may be difficult. I want to give my wonderful mother-in-law all the attention that she is due.

Plus, I feel that my last blog uncovered 2 things for me to work on..........things that I must deal with before I can move on. I feel that I must work through them by being intuitive and mindful for about a week to really be perceptive about what is going on. The first is my sense of
"not being enough" and needing to continue improving myself and the second is the cooling off of my interaction with my husband. I have given both issues a little thought and feel this just may be the final frontier for me to work through. I think the issues are inter-related. Rather than blog daily, giving a blow by blow, I will probably wait til I have a break-through and then do more of a summary blog. In the meantime, I plan to do some observing, experimenting, reading, brain-storming, and soul-searching.

    Good plan

And yup, you have found the Refuse to Regain author and her work is excellent (I had written a couple of earlier blogs about it, inspired by KANOE10).

Also a huge fan of Dr. Judith Beck, The Beck Diet Solution.

    Times of introspection have led me to many breakthroughs and aha moments. Then I have to balance that out with focusing on others' needs for attention and encouragement, just like you are planning to do with your MIL. emoticon

It makes me glad to hear that you are working on the outside AND the inside.
Enjoy your mother in law. Keep sharing what you're learning about yourself because it truly does help others.

Love, Ginger emoticon

    Good for you! A girl with a plan can be a force to be reckoned with! Can't wait to see who comes out on the other side! Of course it will be you! You'll just be stronger, more confident, more tuned in to yourself and your needs. And this? I can't wait for you to have it. . . all! You are soooooo worth it!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
