Yes, I totally agree

Yes, I totally agree! And I did get that point also from the prtoey, just
not with the promise. I also think finding those moments of contentment are
sometimes quite hard, you almost have to take a serious loaf, feet up and
all to actually find those moments. I no sooner will feel completely happy
with who I am, what I have, and where I am at, when something happens to
change that. Sometimes it changes for the better but most times it
doesn’t and steals those moments from me. Ah-ha another theme to this
prtoey…the more we practice finding those moments of contentment the
easier and more often we will find we have them :) Hope you had a great
weekend and I always read your posts!

Nicole Trail This po

Nicole Trail This post is so inspiring to me! My ex left me and our two
boys (age 12 and 16) asmolt a year ago no warning, no real explanation.
I too was a mommy martyr and had given up my identity to do it all at
home (+ work full time bringing in over 50% of our family income). I am
actually finding life easier in some ways with just two children to care
for now, but I am struggling to find my identity as a single woman and to
keep a positive attitude. Thank you for giving me a little extra jolt of
inspiration to keep moving forward!!

I just read this in

I just read this in my classroom while my stuednts were working in their
literature circles and literally sobbed aloud. This was beautiful, Lisa.
You ARE mother, full of Grace a grace ever deepened by how hard you work
and struggle to attain and maintain it. You inspire me every day to be a
better person.

Sweet deal, Mr. Scog

Sweet deal, Mr. Scoggins! Your kick the pants, an invite to athnoer awesome
blogger and poetry. I sometimes think a poem can be just as powerful as a
lecture. Even tho I loved how they used the metaphor of a moment being as
long as a season, years even. I find I just can’t make your promise. It
is not that I am not fascinated with the now. I mean I know everything is
alive and real to me as I live it. And any psychologist will tell you how
much energy a person must expend to be able to resist motion. It is not
that I don’t have faith in my life, but just the opposite, it is because
I do….I was raised on faith and I do believe in the intangible, unseeable
phenomena in life. It is what keeps me in my dusty race : ) But a promise
is not something I take lightly and I have thought about this all morning.
I am extremely grateful for all that I have and for all I have been given
and this may sound a wee bit selfish but it’s like I would be telling
myself I have to accept everything I am dished out and be happy with it. I
just don’t know if I can do that. If now affects the nows that follow, so
when I get now right, everything has a better chance of falling into place.
I will never be able to see everything that is affecting me. So shouldn’t
I plan now for what I can’t see? I mean wouldn’t we want our moments
to be touching, moving and joyful.. so that we can make that moment an
eternal now?

Really beautiful wti

Really beautiful wtiring and stupendous photos.Deep belly breathing is
liberating. When I teach elder dance, the women (mostly around age 80)
cannot get over the breath. They take the breathing home. They come back
and tell stories of how it calmed them in this or that moment, how it is
helping them move their bodies in ways they did not know their bodies could
move.Think about that age group how many of them had similar experiences
to yours and it has, for this many decades, stayed locked in their bodies,
because even more in their time, there was NO talking about it, NO
releasing.Oh thank you for this post. I never thought all of this through
on this level.
