Surrender and Be Free

Posted on Posted in Just Thinking

I went to bed too early (I reckon) so I kept waking up all through the night. When I’d awaken, I’d turn and lie on either my left or right side and attempt to sleep in fetal position, thinking this would help me get back to sleep, but it never worked. Then I remembered hearing an expert say that sleeping on one’s back is the best way to sleep, so I laid flat on my back. Often while sleeping, I’d get too warm so I’d flip my pillow and spread my arms and legs to find cooler spaces on the bed until I cool off. So, I followed this ritual all night last night, all night. And it was somewhere around 2-something (I looked at the clock) as I was cooling myself and realized that my lying down position was reminiscent of the outstretched arms of the infamous crucifix. That was the moment when the word “surrender” entered my experience; right then I stopped trying to go to sleep and simply went to sleep. Of course, I kept waking up but when I did, I knew exactly what to do–model the greatest example of surrender ever. Ashe (so let it be).

The Therapist’s Job and Your Personal Experience

… are two different things. She does not need to have had your specific experience to help you with yours. And if she had the same experience and overcame it and told you how. It does not mean that what she did will work for you. There are so many reasons why we don’t talk about ourselves. The biggest one is that you’re not paying us to talk about us!

Accepting a New Friend, Being one too

There is nothing like meeting someone who “gets you.” At least when they’re new they seem to “get you” better than anyone else at the time. I guess that is until they get to know you, lol. Enjoy the new best friends. And if you watched my video on “making  ‘what is’ perfect” then you’ll always be best friends.

Making “what is” Perfect

Posted on Posted in Just Thinking

I know “what is” is not what you think you want. But, question. “What if “what is” could be perfect if you made it that way?”

Perfection requires work, my friend. Think of a thing that you accomplished that you causes you to marvel? Your accomplishment was perfect because it was difficult but you did it!

It’s the same in relationships. Of course, the relationship can only be perfect if the two of you are perfect for each other. That’s the first requirement. Okay, let me say–if there is any kind of abuse, any kind, then your relationship is disqualified as perfect. That’s for the record, y’all.
