• “accept the thing you cannot change”

    February 19, 2015KarenBeth

    *I am also using this for the Five Minute Friday word OPEN as well as my Tuesday at Ten Link Up* While it’s not always easy, sometimes the healing can be found in true acceptance of what is here – no matter what it is, or how it makes us feel, – its here because it needs to be here! That has been a hard lesson to learn over the years. I could never understand why I can’t change something and the way it feels – especially emotions. The path that I have been on the past month or so…

  • it’s where the healing begins

    February 11, 2015KarenBeth

    For the past week or so, I have struggled with really hard emotions emerging and showing up at a certain time of the day; the kind of emotions that burn and hurt within. In the past I would have blamed these sudden onset of emotions on 2 O’clock; that pesky time of the day where I am triggered by past emotions from my childhood. This isn’t 2 O’clock, this is more like “a healing process” happening within; a healing I have not felt ever in all my times in therapy on this journey of healing. For the past month now,…

  • having {faith} in the steps ahead

    January 31, 2015KarenBeth

    Sometimes when you are hit with one thing after another, it’s hard to have faith in anything not yet seen. You tend to think that all the hard things will follow you along into the next; taking away any faith you have left. The year began hard for me with my moms passing, it wasn’t how I saw the year beginning as I really focused on what could be good and different going into the new year, but what I realized is, sometimes its those hard moments that really bring you to what you need to see to move to…

  • the choice in moving forward

    January 16, 2015KarenBeth

    I have had a lot of emotions since my mom’s passing a week ago. I have gone widely from sadness to anger, bitterness, to guilt, even to feeling numb like life is passing by and I am standing still! I have gone through feelings of fear, confusion, unsureness and many other emotions that are confusing to me. I honestly thought I was prepared for this moment all my life, as my mom has been sick most of my life, its all I knew and always feared her death even when I was little. I don’t think anything ever prepares you…

  • . . . and then there was {PEACE}

    January 15, 2015KarenBeth

    My mom passed away last week after battling years and years of many different illnesses that caused her so much pain and suffering. bed-ridden for years, and being “trapped” as she called it, in a body that chained and confined her to the diseases that took over her body; so much so that she prayed for God to take her away from this pain filled life. A quote that she wrote that was shared at the wake last week was: “People say life is too short, I say life is too long” I can only imagine how long life must…
