What Would I Love to Feel?

  Have you heard people say, “Make it a good day!” That’s a really nice thought I’m not the only one in my day that plays into whether or not it ends up good. Oh, I’d love to send out all my plans and make everyone execute them to perfection so that my day is a good one. BUT... I don’t have the power to make anyone do anything. And so, I am kind of at the mercy of everyone else. Circumstances beyond my control, situations I didn’t expect, and the moods of others play into my ability to “have [...]

Vulnerability in Connection

Joy comes from connection. Connection to self. Connection to God. Connection to others. Connection comes from vulnerability. As a child I learned the rules to keep safe in a dysfunctional family system. Don’t talk, don’t trust, don’t feel, don’t share. In me these rules bred disconnection, pain, anxiety, fear, isolation, and numbness. Not joy. In those days I defined happiness as an absence of turmoil. I had no idea it was an actual emotion that could be felt and enjoyed. As a young adult I learned that these family rules were destructive to my wellbeing. It was terrifying and so [...]
