New Beginnings Can Be Found All Around Us


New Beginnings

New beginnings, what does this mean?  

Every morning I wake up, I hear my breathe, my eyes open, and I see my surroundings; that symbolizes a new beginning. When I make a pot of coffee, and watch the water drops drip out of the peculator; that is a new beginning.  It is not the coffee I had yesterday; it's not the same water I had yesterday.  The drops from the peculator are new to the day. This symbolic analogy may mean nothing to someone else, but in my mind, I can see new beginnings all around me.

New beginnings all around us.

The cherry blossoms in the spring time. The sprouting of a seedling.  The sun rising over the mountains. The birth of a baby child. A robins eggs. The caterpillar emerging from its cocoon. The bud of a flower that finally blossoms. The daily shedding of skin cells. The growth of new leaves on a birch tree. Even the new growth of hair on my head.  

Being receptive.

Being receptive to the new beginnings all around me, somehow makes me look at life in a new perspective. What I experienced in my past--whether it was yesterday or ten years from today, I can take it with me and carry it all day and into my future, or I can stay in the present, see the new beginnings each day, and know that I have the efficacy to create life.

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors

TRAUMA and ISOLATION

There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
