  • I often wonder . . .

    May 18, 2015KarenBeth

    I am writing on my linkup – Tuesday at Ten Prompt phrase “I often wonder” Sometimes I often wonder why. . . . . why? Why did I have the childhood I had by being sexually abused since I was 5 years old? Why was I the one abused, yet no one else was touched? Why me? Why was I raped? what did I do to deserve my purity to be taken? Why was I neglected and abandoned in the midst of this abuse and be so invisible that not one person noticed the “hurting child who was suffering inside?”…

  • being ok with what is here!

    May 8, 2015KarenBeth

    Today in session I really opened up about being okay and accepting for where I am in this journey… it was a great session with a lot of realization! I can sit here and think ahead and wonder “where would I be today had I not gone through a particular hard situation a few years ago that really threw me into a hard isolated emotional place by past triggers? I can sit here and wonder about how things would be today if things were different from the past to the obstacles I have faced along the way. I can sit…

  • being good enough

    April 27, 2015KarenBeth

    I have been working on a small art project, or at least trying to, and I haven’t had the courage to really dig deep into it, and I think fear is holding me back. Fear of not doing it good enough, fear it wont be what I hope for! The same thing goes with my writing in the blog. I used to write all the time, almost every day in my blog, and for some reason I have just come to a complete STOP! Fear of not doing it good enough, or finding the perfect words to say! My therapist…

  • my journey to healing

    April 16, 2015KarenBeth

    This month marks 8 years that I have walked this amazing path of healing in therapy with a wonderful wisdom filled therapist. It hasn’t been an easy 8 years, but it has been a liberating life changing 8 years. 8 years ago, I drove my car up this long and winding mountain side road heading towards this place I would spend the next 8 years discovering all the parts of me I never knew before. I remember this day like it was yesterday, but never did I think I would endure a journey quite like this. This journey that I…

  • writing for me

    April 1, 2015KarenBeth

    When I first began my blog about 6 years ago, I was very hesitant about others seeing what I wanted to write about; what my deepest thoughts were. So I started out the blog by talking about things that were easy, like – “how much I love my boys”, “Photos of the family” “every day little thoughts”, poems, quotes, just little things that people coule relate to. As I began to feel the blog water out, I began writing from my heart! I began to write about the past and all the haunting stories that fill my soul even today.…

  • Blessed for this jouney

    March 31, 2015KarenBeth

    We are sitting here in the midst of Easter, holy week, a week that holds so many blessings, a remembrance for what God has done for the very blessings we have. Sometimes life moves us away from seeing the many blessings that we do have. We get busy, life gets in the way. We sometimes forget that those blessings are what lights our way in the darker times of our days. Even in the harder times I have gone through in the past couple of years around this isolation, I have never forgotten the blessings that I am surrounded by.…

  • God given {strength}

    March 18, 2015KarenBeth

    Monday I awoke the feeling of sadness, unworthiness, and feeling not good about myself! I felt horrible inside – not good enough. This has been a struggle for me off and on for the past year, it has been a part of the work in therapy for the past couple of months now. I went into therapy that morning and opened up to my therapist about not feeling good enough! He understands this struggle as I have been struggling with it for quite some time now. These feelings filled the room Monday morning and the room was quiet as I…
