Life, Change, Anxiety and Hope

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. It's been a week since my last post.

That's not the sin.

The sin, my friends, is that I haven't had the desire to post lately because I'm busy enjoying life (mostly). It's challenging and difficult but there's a faint joy of light in the core of me that had been dimmed for a long time.

Lots of change ahead. Some I don't want. Some I look forward to. Some I can't even see at the moment. It's big, heavy, even scary but freeing at the same time. I go in and out of angst. Just another layer of the onion.

Coming back to myself. Where have I been? Right here all along, I guess. I just forgot. Lots of self-reflection. Remembering is sweet(ish). Except for the anxiety.

It's the not knowing. Leaves me with only myself. My instincts. My intentions. My truth.

Fancy that.

I'm trying to stay in the moment. I find myself projecting into the future. That's where the angst comes in. It's unconscious. I'll be off in a thought and my heart will be racing, my body shaking and I'll come back to the moment and gasp for air.

I haven't felt anxiety like this in a few years (or ten). It's icky. Very uncomfortable. I'm taking advantage of my lack of appetite. Not a diet I would recommend. But at least it's driving me back to yoga.

Work has been keeping me busy too. And it's about to get even busier for the next couple of weeks. I need it. Sitting around waiting for another ball to drop is not my idea of a good time.

So while I've been enjoying life, I've also been challenged to really show up and face a few demons.

Fear, you know. It's only fear.

Easy to say. Harder to remember.

That weird tingle, I've had it a lot lately too. Its exciting, and kind of fun, and yet scary as heck.

Its a good thing though. Moving right along...

I was wondering where you'd been! I'm glad that things are slowly starting to light up again, for you. Change is so hard to accept, IMO, but once you do, life just seems to flow a lot easier.


Blogger Judith HeartSong said ... (4:29 PM) : 

you know, no matter how much or how little you write, I will still be right here to check in on you. Go and be happy and live your life, and know that the feeling in the pit of your stomach often pre-sages a wonderful new adventure.

Hang in there. I was always the girl who said I hated change... boy have I learned about change. And you... you are strong and thoughtful and so bright... you can handle ANYTHING that life throws at you, just know that right behind you you have a circle of friends.
lots of love,
ps I think you are very brave.

I'm a sucker for the same ole same ole. Change just scares me to death. I feel for you my friend.
Sending you much love,

Beautiful picture! Hang in there. Change is inevitable. Anxiety never makes it better, but hope sure does. :-)
