It Was A Week Where… (Week In Review)

It was a weird week. A week where I had enough feelings go through me for an entire half year. In fact this is the first time I’ve sat down to do my Week In Review and just can’t get a grasp on where to start.  …what happens when my hair person is late. #notmyspecialty It was a week where…   I ate doggy bagged sweet potato fries and onion rings for dinner…

Digesting Emotions. What I Learned From BodyTalk.

As I mentioned on Monday, last week I attended a BodyTalk session. BodyTalk is basically impossible to explain and rather should just be experienced first hand – but in short, it works to balance out what the body may be currently holding onto or suppressing, and which – as a repercussion – is affecting our mental state. The body somehow sends messages, guiding the practitioner to areas where there is an imbalance, or where extra attention is…

Week In Review: Time to Slow Down, Rest, Restore

I’ve already written a lot. I’ve written more about my craziness and up and down feelings in these past couple of weeks than I usually do, so I hope to keep this brief.  There is a balance between pushing yourself in a way that you feel proud, and pushing yourself a bit too far.  For instance last week’s Week In Review – I regret none of it. I feel…

The Laments of a Highly Sensitive Person

Happy Sunday morning my doves, A part of me feels like I want to apologize for my post on Thursday. I know that is also a silly thing to do but work with me. That was the type of thing I would usually write in my personal journal. That day, a bit of a straw broke. I was exhausted from shoveling stress onto myself – totally self perpetuated, yet seemingly impossible to stop.  This exhaustion though…

Cora… You Need To Stop.

I need to stop.  I need to slow down.  I need to stop pushing myself; putting so much pressure on myself.  I’m running myself to the ground in the effort to eliminate space.  I’m filling every gap of time with Emails Screens Scrolling Clicking Submitting So much friggen scrolling and clicking. I’m not looking out, I’m only ever looking down. I’m running at full speed Ramped…

Bravery Is A Muscle: Week In Review

Bravery is a muscle.  Muscles are not only bulging biceps, twitching delts or popping calves built at the gym… we have emotional and mental muscles, too. And, like those muscles in the gym, they must be worked consistently if we want them to exist. These mental muscles however – in my opinion – can be some of the most challenging to work.   Sorry. Gross picture. But I had to.   Different people find different things…

Soften: It Is Fear That Paralyzes Us

Soften. I’ve had this word on repeat over the past week or so.  Not “breathe” Not “relax” Not even “release.” But… soften.  It seems to work in a completely different way than the rest. Like an authority figure that immediately gets your respect and attention. My body understands it.  If you’ve been reading recently I think you’ll know that I&#8217…

Week In Review: Baking, Writing, Meditating and Pushing Through

Last week was bloody hard.  Everything right now feels pretty hard. I finally beat down my anxiety which took a lot of work, and then took a lot of tears and discomfort and will power to not revert back to the numbing-ness of anxiety when I let myself feel what was underneath it all. Sigh. Life is just hard you guys.  But I’m not alone in this. I know we all share it. Feelings are…

Mind-Body Connection and Finding the Hidden Reasons for Anxiety: Week In Review

One of the things I like most about Meg’s Week In Review, is how it forces/encourages us to break down our…lives, in a sense…into one week periods. Each weekend I look back on the previous 7 days… only the previous 7 days… and assess what they felt like. How I felt, what I did, how I was affected and therefore, what I am learning.  I don’t…

The Fatigue of Open Time: The Time I Finished My To-Do List (Week In Review)

Hi friends,  Last week was a weird week. Ugh.  It was long and tiring. But not in the way I would hope.   If you saw Wednesday’s post, you are aware that I was working intentionally to keep myself feeling positive. Well that just seemed to be the roller coaster I was on all week. Down…work to feel up. Down…work to feel up. And that kind of work, is…
