Been A While

Hello Blog Land.
It's been a while.
Sorry for my absence.
Have you ever experienced something in life that turned your world upside down?
Have you ever had a time where you felt as if you were drowning?
No matter how hard you fought to reach the surface, you just couldn't catch your breath?
That's how it's been for me lately.
It's been hard.
I've been trying to learn from this experience.
I have been trying to remember to breathe.
Mostly, I have been soul searching through tears.
I am in the process of healing my heart,
cleansing my soul and clearing my mind.
I have had trouble visiting this page.
What do I write?
I don't have sunshine and happiness to share.
I don't have wise words and silly stories.
I'm feeling much better and starting to smile again.
Still, how do I transition back to the page?
The words have been fighting me.
I have come to this space time and time again looking at the blank page.
The blank page just stares back at me.
Today I offer up this honest bit for what it's worth.
Not much to say.
No sense to make.
Just me, trying to find the words once again.
Step One.
Post something.

The following are photos of a wind chime I made recently. A little art therapy.
Every centimeter of this wind chime has personal meaning.
When the wind comes along, it plays a healing reminder.

If you're here in this space, blessings to you for hanging in there with me.
If you're experiencing your own personal pain, prayers of healing to you.

hi sweetie....
i'm glad you felt brave and strong enough to come back.
remember no matter what....
you is kind
you is smart
you is important
and sometimes, the baby steps in life are often the most important steps in our whole lifetime.....xoxoo

I know too well that feeling of being ripped inside out, and even though our inner pain is not the same, the best thing to do is write it out.
Sunshine and happiness is not a perpetual state; a post from the real world helps as many reading it as it does you to purge.
Love your wind chime, with all the spoons, so if there is a day you feel like your personal ones are used up, there are more to refill the well.

I miss you. May my gentle breeze help you to sing again.

Always hangin' in there....with you and for you! I hope the stormy tears start to clear up soon and life brings you some sunshine. You are loved and missed!

I'm happy to see this post because it shows you have taken another step towards becoming yourself again. Even if the new yourself will be different from the old yourself, it is a step in the right direction.

Hi Nacherluver........ so good to have you back and thank you for sharing. And yes life has a habit of tearing down that which we treasure most, however I guess it is like builders with hurricanes, with experience comes better building?

John said...

Oops, forgot to say how much I liked the chimes...............

I'm so sorry to hear that you are in pain... but it's good to see you here, writing what you can. You know it doesn't always have to be happy stuff, right? Sometimes it's the painful things we go through that, when shared, bring us all a little closer together. I've been thinking of you a lot these past few days... sending you positive wishes on the wind, hoping that each day gets a little easier.
Baby steps. xoxoxoxo
