Don't you love it when you call the right person at the right time and they tell you exactly what you need to hear? I just spoke to a friend I was meaning to call for a few days now and am so glad I did. Reaching out can be just the remedy for the "been at home too long and starting to feel pathetic blues". How do we get to this place?, it's easy, i've slipped into the isolation trap many a time and can vouch for what a slippery slope it is.
1- it starts and ends with not getting out of your pajamas. "but they're so comfortable!", you remark, yes exactly, but they only stay that way while they're clean which basically means you should only be wearing them while sleeping. Pajamas are the gateway, they lead to less showers, which lead to greasy hair, which can lead to all kinds of wild ideas from being alone too long or watching too much t.v. - "maybe I should go into acting, I did play Yente in my elementary school production of Fiddler on the Roof" or "I've always had a knack for popping pimples, maybe beauty school is for me!" Point being that when we are alone it's very easy to get our crazy on - freelancers you gotta know what I'm talking about! So pick up the phone and call a friend, they will reconnect you with the you that wears outdoor clothes, the you that can be dropped in on at anytime and the you that remembers that to be a part of this world you must interact with it.

It's nothing religious, quite the opposite really. Just email your prayer request, anonymously if you like and I will say a prayer for you. If you like(please indicate so), I will post it and all those who visit here can have the opportunity to pray for you too. A friend mentioned how helpful this is and it's had me up all night thinking about it. Prayer is such a beautiful ancient ritual, so simple and direct, such a beautiful way for us to connect and re-connect without obligation. So please, consider yourselves invited.

My newest challenge is that all is relatively quiet on the western front. Nothing much is happening these days, nothing on the go, no action, none at all actually. So I go through my trusty daily routines; exercising, meditating, walking in the park, eating, cleaning, cooking, talking to clients, writing, reading, seeing my fiancee, occasionally talking to or seeing friends & family. No major disasters to report, silently working through my issues on a vibrational level (sometimes there's nothing else to be done i guess). Faced with many moments of boredom during this relatively peaceful time, I notice how my anxiety rises in waves, hoping for some drama, something to keep the show exciting. Nothing comes, and I am forced to realize how hard it is to be in this place that I have so often hoped and prayed for. Quiet time has it's very own cross to bear it seems. Not as easy as I thought it would be, not as much sipping on pina coladas as I had envisioned. Being in the nothing is a brilliant challenge for all of us. Of course there are always things to work on, but when it's about letting go-it's about letting go, not circling again and again and prodding with the same stick. Watching the fire burn out on patterns and issues that no longer serve us seems even harder than when we were unconsciously participating in those troubles. To not create problems when there are none is a lot harder than solving ones you already have. At least you've already met the ones you have.
