You Know…The Feeling

You know the feeling of anxiety.  The one that comes up and takes you by surprise.  You think you are fine.  Your gut is saying you are.  You have gone to your appointment by yourself because it is no big deal.  They are just checking that the mass has not gotten any bigger and it hasn’t moved.  Doctor says all is good and will see you in a year to check again.  Great!

You get to work and in the middle of your day, you get a little emotional with something you see.  No big deal.  That’s normal.  Right?  Just me and my female emotions is all.  Then someone says something a little harsher than normal and you just start crying.  WTH??!!

Yes, anxiety got me today! I didn’t realize, until the crying hit me, that I had let something that was okay, really get to me.  It is that “not knowing” and keeping a strong persona, especially once you know all is okay, so that no one sees you were worried or stressed about it.  No reason to be upset when all is okay, right?

Wrong.  We all have our ways of dealing with things.  I am just realizing when I do this kind of thing, that I was not dealing with it when I thought I was.  Before I would think I was just being emotional or having a bad day.  Now I know it was my anxiety I had not been dealing with and it finally hit me in this way instead of staying bottled up or seen as an emotional day.  It really is amazing the things you learn about yourself when you start paying attention!  🙂

Castle Home in the Sky

She had been searching for so long.  Only finding what she was looking for in her dreams.  Dressed in a beautiful flowing gown she stood on the cliff.  Looking toward her home.  Held in the clouds by anchors to who-knows-where.  Her beautiful castle in the sky.  Waterfalls cascading into space and time.  Birds flying over head, singing for her to come home.  As she stepped forward, a bridge appeared in mid-air and she slowly headed to her castle home in the sky.

Did you ever think about how traveling can help you deal with grief or loss?  I didn’t!  If you are looking for a way to deal with grief or loss, take a listen to Memento More. How Travel Can Help Us Deal With Death and Grief with Dr. Karen Wyatt.  It is a very interesting podcast called Books and Travel by Joanna Penn.  It is good information on how traveling can help.

Enjoy!

What Can I Be Looking For?

What can I be looking for?

Through the mists of my soul

I take a walk through the fog

Wondering and waiting

For what I do not know

Stepping through the forest

The only light from the moonlight overhead

Sharing it’s mystical impression

Feeling so unreal in it’s perception

I am searching for something or someone

Not sure why or what for

But I continue to move on and glide through

Hoping beyond hope to understand

What can I be looking for?
