  •  2012 has been my year to throw open (6+ / 0-)

    the darkest cellars and survive the deepest fears.  Hard work, it took courage and a lot of support to walk through those terrors.  It occurred to me Saturday that I may not be bi- polar anymore.  

    I read somewhere that recovery from PTSD, which manifested in me as bi-polar disorder, starts with a sense of empowerment.  Cleaning out the dark corners and changing the stories I tell myself about them might have been the beginning of a sense of having the strength and resources to move more easily through the world.  

    I'm different.  I love my life and find good things everywhere.  Sufi healings and a good friend/healer have helped more than I'd have believed.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

    •  The stories we tell ourselves (0+ / 0-)

      about our lives make a great deal of difference. There is a reason that the particular pagan tradition in which I am ordained calls itself the Storyteller Tradition.

      We cowrite with the gods, and they do sometimes hand us some interesting plot twists! But it's up to us to decide what happens next.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
