I Need to RE-Adjust. I have been trying to hold on to past things, and reminiscing way too much. The fact of the matter is? I need to move forward, Mostly because you just CANT go backward, but also because staying in one place? is not a good thing.
I purchased a new Journal, Usually? I make them….Now I know why. This puppy has THIN paper, It says 70# but it Bleeds like mad! I am disappointed in that regard, However, I have decided NOT to glue the pages together, but to use materials that wont bleed, So I can get the most out of the Journal. I am also teaching My Granddaughter to art journal, and I know until she is older she will be limited to a few supplies as she has young brothers who get into her things and decorate the walls, as well as just using her stuff in general. Here a few of the pages so far:
I have been adjusting to having My Grand-kids for the summer as well, Its been a looooonnnnng time since I did this “full” time! You think at age 49 that age 11 is completely self sufficient, when that’s just not so. Just like a 5 year old is easy to have around = ie: not so busy? “wrong!” When Lexi Was 5 going on 6? I cant tell you how many times I had to put on, and or Judged a fashion show, and played with Barbies! BUT…soon? We will be the OLD people, that are SOoooooo boring…..So I am taking it all in!
As for the Menopause, and the many diagnoses? All I can say, is I am alive, and I will learn to deal with whatever comes my way. I always have and Managed just fine. I have figured things out, and persevered in every endeavor. It may not have been easy? but it sure as HELL has been Interesting! who wants boring anyway? No one reads a book if it doesn’t have conflict right? We are, after all, Living our Life story.
A Friend of mine, Shiva Shakti, had an Interesting Blog and I thought I would share. http://shivashakti925.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/power-animal/

Interestingly enough I did the Meditation, and I KNEW the Wolf and the Hawk were two of my Totem animals…..But I never Knew the Buffalo was as well! Surprise! Anyway…. Depression? yeah, I think we all have had it from time to time, I can relate. We just cant let it defeat us. Life is too precious. Thank You SO Much Dear Shiva for reminding me of that. ❤ You are so right Dear Friend!
