Recovery, Rediscovery, and Renewal

          Sometimes we don’t realize how we get caught up in crazy until it’s too late. Have you ever noticed how much your stress intensifies because you are caught in a briar bush of “crazy” belonging to someone else? Have you ever gotten swept up in someone else’s mess, whether it is from some dysfunction you experienced in childhood, teenhood, or adulthood?

        Has this dysfunction left you wounded, as you discover yourself in a state of crouching in the shadows, wrapped up in unexplained emotions like a mummy? Well, it’s time to get moving and reset our resiliency by recovering from the dysfunctions, rediscovering our essence and purpose, and then renewing our spirits, minds, and bodies. This is not about the overall craziness but about self-care in the midst of craziness. Once we discover we can walk steadily after crawling, we pick up our momentum, turning a walk into a stroll, a stroll into a jog, and a jog into a marathon. We can only do this if we redirect our attention from the distractions that divide and refocus our vision on the direction where we are headed.

    Extremely beautiful post, dear Kym. Thank you so much for my much needed daily dose of motivation and inspiration. Gone are the days when I used to waste my time on thinking about others’ opinion on me. I used to worry whether they would regard me as a bad girl or whether I said something to offend anyone. I have stopped worrying about all these because it’s not always possible to please everyone. I know that I am good and God knows I am good. I live with a guilt free conscience and I never think or wish for ill of others. This is how my thinking evolved over the years of domestic abuse. And you have added more positive things to my life. Lots of love, hugs, kisses, smiles and happiness to you, dear friend. 😊😊😊😊😘😘😘😘😘πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

  2. It’s up to us to get away from the ‘crazy’ we are into. We have to condition our mind, spirit and body to serve the essence and purpose that we have just rediscovered from the recovery we made out of the mess. Did I say it right? 😁😁😁 Oh, my! This is such a nice post, Kym!

  3. Oh Aparna, how you always manage to tug at my heartstrings. πŸ™πŸΌ I applaud your rise above the frivolous things that try to weigh us down and take away our joy. You know, when you have a gift to give and the positivity that you convey which you share so generously, you will always find someone who is jealous or bitter about the goodness you exude. πŸ€—πŸ₯°πŸ˜Š That’s when they plot to try to kill your spirit. No more!

    Continue to put those messy things and negative people in your rear view mirror. They have no power over you and you’re right, you cannot please everyone, so don’t even try. Continue to be the kind, compassionate, and good person that you were born to be, not what others try to mold you into.

    Thanks again for your sweet comments and have yourself a FABulous day my friend. Hugs and smooches! 🌞🌺😍πŸ₯‚πŸ˜Ž

  5. Thanks Tom and you are so right. This is an extremely crazy world we’re living in these days! 😲πŸ€ͺ😡 I don’t know when crazy became normalized. Trying to stay in the know to revive myself from such extremism is critical. Hope you are doing well my friend. Don’t let the crazies get ya! 😝😱😲

  7. I use to belong to this gym and the longer I stayed there the more mess I was drawn into it. People not liking each other and gossiping. I was able to get along with everyone but right before I through my membership out the window a few ladies told me that the folks I thought were my friend were not. When I tell you that I laughed until my sides were sore. I could careless about some messy people and getting swept into any mess. My reaction was not what they wanted it to be and that made me laugh harder.
    I am not the one! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. So true Kym and it usually happens for me after a big push when I an finally shut down and notice how I actually am. It makes me remember how important to register what Im going through at the time and learn from it so I don’t fall apart and can actually enjoy my break!
