It’s better. It’s getting better. I’ve been stewing in the tragedy of unmet expectations. Not getting a contract I was *so sure!* I would be awarded. Ohohoh painful.

I love life and its lessons. This is a fine line for me and one that’s not working the way it should I think. I visualize and outpicture the result I want and then I become securely attached to that outcome. I don’t know how to let go and let spirit with enough skill so that I can deal with what happens without so much effect.

I am grateful to be in awareness. Even when it hurts.

I am grateful for new work coming in from other clients. I am grateful for possibilities of more. I am grateful that my neighbor is willing to shift our deal from trade to part trade/part cash for a job I’m doing for him.

I’m grateful for the generosity of others. I am grateful for support even when I’m nuts and distracted and depressed.

I’m grateful for my daily yoga practice and the ease with which my body moves.

I am grateful for my kid in my life.

I am grateful for my meetings.

I am grateful to be alive sober healthy aware and committed to kindness, even to myself!

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
