Rest…

Rest is healthy sense – mind, body, spirit.

Pause all activity. Breathe in slowly, naturally & deeply. Exhale in the same manner. Rest.

Listen to the sound of your breath. Explore the comfort in rest.

Welcome your cleansing breath – your healing breath. Engage its impact…do it again & again…& again.

Rest.

Thank you for allowing Life Through The Storm to be a healthy part of your day.

Live wise, live well & rest. ~Storm

Doing The Work

Embed from Getty Images

When unhealthy & familiar events trigger old memories, tugging at emotional/behavioral patterns that attempt to thwart spiritual/personal development – remind yourself that you are committed to doing the work of cleansing, release & healing.

Say to yourself through the inevitable dance of process – I am doing the work!

Doing the work means actively involving oneself in the needed steps that produce change (facing, letting go, sorting through, redefining thoughts & beliefs, accountability, etc).

Remind yourself as often as needed (an act of love) – I am committed to doing the work. I am committed to doing the work. I am committed to doing the work. I am committed to doing the work.

Have you ever found it needful to remind yourself that you’re doing the work?

You’re always welcome to leave your thoughts & insights. Thank you for allowing Life through The Storm to be a healthy part of your day.

Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm

My answers:
1. What is the best thing about you? The best thing about me – my space is wherever I am

2. What time of day do you blog? I have no set time of the day to blog. I write daily. Most of my work is mental. As I examine & process life, I collect thoughts & ideas for writing.

3. How many revisions does it take before you finally publish? I make as many revisions as needed before I publish. There are times when an idea is everything that needs to be expressed – little revising. At other times, it might take 7 or more revisions. I have been known to revise after I’ve published. I follow my instincts on that one.

4. Who is/was the most influential person in your life. While there are many people in my life that I admire, respect, etc – to be honest, I’ve never considered anyone to be the most influential person in my life.

10. How would you describe my blog content to someone who has not read it. Shay Amore is the blogger who nominated me for The Liebster Award. I describe her blog as a courageous & bold stand against abuse! Shay expresses the epitome of what it means to have been victimized…tortured! I understand her sentiments. Her blog emotionally challenges every person who has ever been abused to fight for their lives! I commend Shay for being a vessel of insight.

11. What have you learned about yourself from blogging? The thing that I’ve learned about myself from blogging – I’ve learned to approach it as I approach daily living. I don’t compare myself to others, I am true to my convictions. Through trial & error, I am committed to growth & development.
