Paint project # two has been done for awhile now... For project one, moving into the spare bedroom meant life went on as usual while I was painting the bedroom but painting the office - life came to a halt in the office realm... The move back in took longer than it did to paint as I toiled with where to put things for the most efficiency. I had Uveitis last year and the sun shining in on my at the computer wan one of my issues so I moved the desk and felt the light in the morning and evening and adjusted it serval times till I came up with the best placement. It was quite the disruption to my on-line life and frankly - I've had a difficult time starting it back up... So sorry for the delay of these little notes. It's so nice to have it done,
I don't know about you - but time is doing funny things. I can't seem to keep track of what day it is. The days simultaneously drag and fly. I'm getting things done yet feel I have so much more to do. The more I look around - the more I see that needs doing... Returning to work - has helped a little with getting a grip on what day it is - but man- I used to get more done in less time. I have to say - it's nice to not be on full steam ahead and constantly behind... but now I'm puttsing along and things get done hither and there with less worry about the things that still need done. I have a new respect for Retired people who have found a rhythm to life without a job. On one hand - it's like - I have so much to do - how do I have time to have a job - and on the other I'm doing the whole struggle of who am I outside of my job? Both are actually silly but somehow serious subjects. My wish for you is to lovingly contemplate your own way through to loving yourself enough to curiously explore those thoughts even though you might not be in my dilemma... Or maybe you've found yourself on the other side of this...
That was written weeks ago... I've gone through only working Tuesdays and Thursdays to working five days a week with Tuesdays and Thursdays being late and the rest being early... This had me feeling like a shift worker and I could not catch a rhythm. So I've made the executive decision that you will be better served if I'm in a good space so my new hours are Monday - Friday 9-3. On line booking is easy you follow the
and choose whether you are using insurance or paying cash and it will show you the options of 60/90/120 or Eval/return visit and once you choose one of those - you see available time slots once you click on the day that will work for you. And you can always Text or Call me to set something up as well. 940-372-1072
I have been working without a mask and giving people the option of wearing or not wearing a mask. With the current surge in cases county wide - I may change that. I have masks on order and may in the future start wearing one but still allowing you to choose. I believe you can relax a lot better without one. I know I can breath a lot better without one but will wear one at your request. (order should be in Friday - but time will tell... They are not easy to come by these days) And If I do wear one - I will put a new one on for each patient so as not to spread the germs that accumulate on the mask from one to another.
I've been doing some dream focus - trying to listen to my higher self coming through the dream state. It's been an interesting process. And by focusing on remembering my dreams - I find I actually am. Not that I completely understand stuff yet - but it's been fun. And I believe it's made me sleep better. Which is always a welcome thing! Basic instructions: write stuff down so your mind can be free prior to going to sleep. Consciously intend to remember your dreams. Upon waking - stay still and try to remember what you were just doing, feeling, or seeing and write it down - write the time and THEN go to the bathroom if that is where you were headed... And for me - it's back to sleep and dang if I'm not remembering more upon getting up for the morning... Happy Dreaming!
Prolonged social isolation has put a mirror up for us to look at ourselves differently. The key is to be kind to yourself and others. Remember you are fine just as you are and if you want to do something - make plans and do it. Go easy on yourself - be realistic without being pessimistic. There is a saying - Denial, Anger, Blame, Chaos... So if you find yourself in Chaos - work backwards from there. The only one you can control is yourself (and trust me - we all find that hard enough to do...) but when you are in chaos - usually you have put some blame on someone/something else... What part do you play in that? And anger - we like to act like it's not there - after all - the names that come with being angry are less than pretty... yet we all get a little bit that way sooner or later... can you instead forgive and forget? or at least consider how the other person/thing that is causing your anger may feel/do/be as they are? You can't change them but you can have healthy
... And lastly we come to the place you can have the most influence - denial - Instead stay present in awareness of the present moment and make a decision instead of a reaction (patterned response). To me - awareness of what is going on and having the tools to deal with the moment in the moment is what make life easier to handle... while denial/avoidance/procrastination/deflection all build and escalate to chaos.
My hope for you is that you find the love and joy that makes life have juice. MFR can help with finding that inner peace as well as decreasing your pain. Healing is a journey with many twists and turns. A positive outlook is a most helpful in all moments.
