Head Runneth Over





I am going through a difficult patch right now that involves making certain decisions that will have a significant impact on my life. No, I'm not contemplating a divorce (never, ever) but still; it is a choice that will bring a major change to my life. Trepidation of the unknown results once this choice is made and its path determined is the source of many sleepless hours, distracted daily living and endless internal questions to which there are no answers - at this point in time. Touche to the first lines of M. Scott Peck's book 'The Road Less Traveled'....
"Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths."

The assemblage above was started last night at 1am. My cup runneth over and so does my head.

XO -- one year ago I thought my head (and surely my heart) would explode with all the runneth overing going on -- facing one giant after another after another -- and what I learned is that there are more giants ahead... and I will survive; I am in Bigger Hands (and I am certain you are in Bigger Hands as well; loving hands, sovereign hands).
I love you - I just wanted to say so -- I am here for you & BTW - this is yet ANOTHER great piece :)

Transitions are difficult.
I can't help thinking about the Anais Nin quote:
"The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Here's to blossoming.

u may find this not trustworthy, but i met and listened to elizabeth gilbert of "eat pray love" and she posits that all you can ever really hope for is to be 85% certain about any important decision. i hope that helps.

you rock! whatever you decide, you will rock the path you find yourself on. life is short. live it the way you wanna xxx

DA - sometimes just creating something that expresses where we are is not such a bad way of finding clarity and confirmation. Positive vibes to you in this time. B

Yes, it is. But there is a saying that "change always comes bearing gifts". I've found it to be true, even after the hard, hard times. Sometimes it's not apparently clear, though.

I find it hard to make major shifts and sometimes the major shifts have to happen first and drag me along. True that, and wish it weren't so.

Thinking of you and sending a prayer up for you now.
