Here Is Wonderful

Posted on

For  many  2016 was a tough year.  For some including me it was a time  to let go of some situations and people who were not conducive to personal or professional growth.  We’re here  now  -2017 has arrived.  The New Year brings us promise  and hope for positive change.   As I move in a new  direction  with a new year  in bloom, despite challenges, there is a  is a lot to be grateful for  and I am happy that I am present.    I learned to enjoy life without the need for prestige.   I have a wonderful group of friends I enjoy.   I  live in a wonderful neighborhood, Brookland, DC.  It has taken  me years to get to a place where I choose peace and I am still not an expert.   It helps that Koko is one of my “life coaches.”    Though she likes attention,  for Koko it’s often a  matter of finding the right box for a nap.

It has been more than a month since Jean Claude slipped out the house for a pack of cigarettes or mouse treats maybe.   CCL and I are hopeful he will return.  Koko seems to be getting used to life without JC.  She has a variety of toys to play with and regularly visits me in my home office.  She also interacts with my friends when they visit.  This morning two squirrels played in my back yard as she and I  watched from the window and a Cardinal also swept down from the sky and walked the back yard for a bit before flying off.   Earlier a bird perched on the window seal just outside my bedroom.

 Grateful Healing

Posted on

 To heal  it is  necessary to remove yourself from people and situations that cause you pain and confusion.  Giving someone the benefit of the doubt does not resolve the situation.  If someone is standing on your foot it hurts.  If you tell the person to stop and they keep coming back to step on your foot in the name of friendship or professional courtesy- it still hurts or at least annoying.  It’s a cycle of pain.  You have the power to stop it. It’s time to let go.
