Hey y’all, sorry it’s been nearly a week since my last blog. The good news is that I’ve been highly compliant to the diet and am feeling great! It’s so funny; I had a chance to catch up on the phone with a dear friend with whom I haven’t spoken in months. As I extolled the many “dramas” occurring for me ALL AT ONCE right now, she said, “But you sound great! So calm and relaxed.” Bless her heart, because she’s one of those friends that tells me when my butt looks big in a certain pair of jeans, so I can trust her word.
As I enjoy my green tea this morning, I realize that she’s right. The only thing that’s missing from my life right now are actual, tangible devices of torture like knuckle screws and the like. I’m nearly tapped out physically, emotionally, spiritually and cognitively (would have been completely drained if not for the recharge in New Orleans last month!). But I’m okay, with capital Oh Kay Ae Why’s…
I’m doing more than simply functioning, which is how I operated in the past. I’m living, under tremendous pressure and outside demands, but living well nonetheless. I’m still in the pool every day; I still enjoy the sunrise or sunset; I still play with the little lizards whilst watering in the backyard (one of them has become quite adept at backflips in the mist!!)…I still burn my sage, play music and go gently with myself.
Though I’d like to, I can’t credit Dr. D with all of these changes in how I approach the world (I’ve done the lion’s share of the work!!). However, thanks to the BTD, my physical being is cared for and I’m able to take the time for the other things. I think I’m growing up!! And it feels so good!
Take care of you all…be well…go gently…
(Oh yeah, one of the “dramas” occurring right now is the TOTAL meltdown of my computer hard drive…so the blogs may be more sparse than normal until I can have constant access to a computer.)
