I made plans while Gd laughedIt's 9:30pm and for the last five months I planned on being at JFK right now waiting for my flight to Israel. It was going to be 9 days of doing what I wanted when I wanted. From there I was boarding a ship for an 11 day Greek islands tour that would end in Rome. It sounds like the perfect vacation, doesn’t it? I thought so. Nowhere in this did I plan on falling at the Atlanta airport, severely dislocating my shoulder and fracturing it in two places. If you ever don't want to go somewhere do that and your plans will be completely blown up.Once again I found myself at a crossroads to make a decision on how I wanted to walk through a situation I definitely did not want to be in. I could use the devastating news as a reason to feel sorry for myself and be pretty miserable given the amount of pain I'm in. Being dependent on is not something I enjoy. Gratefully I chose the latter. I always say there is something to be grateful for in every situation. This was really going to test that theory. It turned out it wasn't as difficult to find the gratitude as I had imagined. Within days of the accident I started writing a list of things that were positive. I think I'm just going to make a list because it feels like the right thing to do.1. Two of my amazing neighbors drove quite a distance to stay with me in the hospital while I was waiting to be taken care of. After over five hours I begged them to go home and was told they weren't leaving without me. There's no way to put into words the comfort their presence gave me. Having friends show up like that is truly a blessing. 2. Once I posted what was going on, people offered to bring food, take me to the doctor, drive me to an NA meeting, the list goes on and on3. I'm able to host Thanksgiving dinner for some people I am close with so nobody is alone. 4. There is a project that I have been wanting to help with for NA. I will be able to do it thanks to voice recognition on Word and unexpected free time. 5. I have been dabbling on writing a book for several years. I truly believe this experience is now the catalyst for me to move forward and do that. I am planning on going away for Christmas to work on the books. Had I gone away on vacation this would not have been an option.6. My awesome company sent me a gift card to order food from a company that would just need to be heated. Even the president of the company reached out to see how I was doing and what they could do to help me. 7. Those two wonderful friends that came to the hospital, well their kindness didn't end there. They took me to the casino Thursday and to a really neat place called Highlands NC on Friday. My original plans were to fly to New York Thursday evening and leave for Israel Saturday night. They thought getting out of town for a little while would make me feel better and boy were they right. We had such a blast.As hard as it is to believe, I'm actually at peace with not going on vacation. There is a reason I'm not supposed to be on that plane this evening. I don't know what it is and I guess I don't need to know. That's where faith comes in. If Gd doesn't want me going, who am I to argue, lol? I'm so grateful to have found the gifts of being at home the next three weeks will offer. It will be weeks until I know what's next since I can't even have an MRI for a minimum of another month. For now all I can do is take care of myself, trust my doctor and be grateful for the amazing people in my life that are not letting me walk through this alone. ... See MoreSee Less

I Am A Thrivalist
The universe said it is time:Professionals have said I’ve done a lot of work on myself. In my earlier years I made fun of certain healing paths saying it was for people with too much time on their hands. With age I have learned that most things I used to make fun of eventually manifest themselves in my life in one way or another. Over time, words like always and never will bite me in the butt.I have been on a downward spiral for a while now. Ignoring it didn’t change a thing, no surprise there. Thinking that because I could write my gratitude list each day things weren’t that bad was false justification. My behaviors indicated otherwise. Despite many years in recovery, my disease found a way to creep in and convince me I was ok when I wasn’t. I eventually (after avoiding both of them for an extended period, yet another red flag) admitted to my sponsor and a close friend that I was concerned. Well, the secret was out, but I didn’t know what to do. The gift of long- term recovery is knowing that at times like these, something big is getting ready to happen. It is at the darkest moment of the night that the stars shine the brightest. Another layer of the onion was getting ready to be peeled off. I just had no idea what it was, how it was going to happen or what to do next.The very short version is I was guided to a therapist that specializes in trauma. Honestly I wasn’t sure why this was where I was heading. Years of various modes of therapy, recovery step work that uncovered patterns, retreats and countless other healing variances had addressed all my multitude of traumas. There is a saying that if you want to make Gd laugh make plans. He was surely having a belly laugh over the wisdom I thought I had about what I needed.Gratefully I moved my ego aside and have started down the road of working with Stacey. In two sessions we have uncovered a childhood trauma that just may be the root cause of why I am in a place I have been in more than a few times during my life. Each time I think I’ve worked through it, yet somehow it reappears in a different disguise with the same underlying symptoms. I’ve begun some morning rituals that seem to be grounding me. They are making room for some light to shine thru the darkness I have been sitting in. I’m not scared of this painful process because my track record shows I grow from these experiences. Nobody has ever climbed a smooth mountain. I have no doubt there is a freedom waiting on the other side of this part of my journey. The only thing I need to do is to keep showing up willing to do the work. It is very obvious that Stacey is the person that is supposed to guide me. Tonight she asked me what I thought it would be like to not have this trauma effecting my life. I said I had no idea. The lessons are in the journey and this is one, despite the pain, that I am truly grateful to be on. The universe told me it is time and I listened. More will be revealed. ... See MoreSee Less
