VALIDATION

Two years gone by, out of the blue I receive a heartwarming message of thanks.

A former student struggling to make graduation made it!

Long overdue but he finally made it.

 

He reached out to let me know how much he appreciated our talks and words of encouragement. 

If not for those moments, he claims he would have given up.

 

Hearing from him lifted my spirits and put me back on track with regard to my purpose.

In life, that is.

My drive comes from helping others.

 

I am reminded of my days after college, struggling to survive, no job.

$99 in my wallet.

I lived on dollar frozen pizzas until my first paycheck.

 

So yes, validation is always good to hear.

More so at midlife when you find yourself once again struggling with purpose.

Survival with purpose or merely survival to live?

 

Today is the day I re-validate my purpose in life.

It’s not merely to live.

I want to live knowing that I can continue to make a difference in helping others.

Awakening Silence

  

I hear the rotating motion of the fan.

My fingers typing on the keyboard.

 

It’s Tuesday, 4am.

I hear my thoughts in this moment’s silence.

 

I think I’ll wear something blue today.

My hypnotherapist said, “close your eyes and go to that place that brings you peace.

Describe what you see.”

 

“I see Green all over, peaceful and relaxing.”

My mind kept taking me to a place that was peaceful however, I sensed it was not quite my place to be.

 

I didn’t have the energy to battle with my mind so I let go of that uncertain moment.

Snap of a finger I was awake.

 

“Before you go to bed, don’t forget to take your mind to that place where you see Green all over.  Say out loud how peaceful and relaxing your place is.”

 

I woke up this morning to kind messages of support from The Green Room.

Only then did I realize that the Green in my subconscious was not the Green of my distant past…

 

But this Green Room that always kept its door open for me.

Once, twice, thrice I have come and gone.

 

Green Room remains my home.

A Sense of Calm

I feel a sense of calm within.

 

After many days of unraveling events, serenity has finally emerged.

Sometimes in the thick of it all, I wonder if I’ll ever simmer down.

A constant calling to the Universe for relief, my plea was finally heard.

 

The impulse has subsided.

 

I sit more comfortably now, contemplating but not waiting on end.

The early morning run, an afternoon massage and comfort food helped.

An email to a friend, comedy video and a friendly drink capped it all.

 

I am feeling much better today, thank you.
