I am a perpetual student of this life. I am learning new things every day and will by the grace of God continue to do so. I’m a woman of many interests, my hobbies to date are only ones that will enhance my life for the better. I wanted to know what was in my lotion so I learned how to make it myself. I wanted to make sea glass jewelry so I researched and taught myself letting the creativity take me where it was going to. I learned Reiki to help me heal myself after a particularly hard year. I have been a writer for many years, nothing published and to afraid to make the book jump into anyone’s hands but a writer non-the less. Now that dream is happening, my book is becoming and I am so excited to see this phase. I have maybe one more season to get through then I will have gathered enough onto the pages to make it a reality.
I work full-time plus have two of my four children still at home, full time life. But I have decided or it has been decided for me to take time for me this year and work on who I am and where I want to be. My mother died in January, I found Reiki in February, then my father in-law died in March and one of my sister-in-laws died in April. My fifteen year old moved in with her father in June (She wanted to get to know her father we are supportive of each other and this is not a horrible fighting decision) . In July my husband had an emotional affair. (we are working through it) I found out about said affair in August and then I was in counseling until October. November was particularly emotionally arduous because it was my mothers Birthday and Thanksgiving; but also a good thing I became attuned to Reiki II. Needless to say my book fell to the wayside it was not even on the radar I was stumbling through breathing the book was of no concern. If God hadn’t united me with Reiki in February, who knows where I would be right now.
I have remained intact because of my faith in God and the healing that Reiki has provided to me.
This is the reason my book’s progress is even more exciting to me. As I was dusting myself off and cleaning up the pile of tissues by my bed I noticed my written work and the spark ignited and I took the task of writing head on for NanoWrimo in November, it was exactly what I needed to distract me and it worked.
I’m so very thankful.
