A Brand New Day

    1. When I post my very personal experiences I do so with the intention to inspire and to encourage others. Bless you for confirming that it is okay I reveal truth regarding my life. I have been accused by some, rather in nasty terms, that what I am doing is wrong. In my heart I know it is not. You have delivered a message for me this day and I am deeply grateful. 💕🌹💕

  1. Your forest photo shows so much, that we are all able survive our wounds so beautiful, just look at this tree 🙂

    Take your time, dear friend, find yourself in the middle somewhere in your home. Maybe use more times cuddling up with your beauties, they are just the best to support us, when we need that more than everything else.

    Much love and healing your way ❤

    1. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart, Irene. I seem to be doing my healing in spurts. I go through a period of doing pretty well and then it seems like I’m triggered and in so doing I find more wounds that need to be addressed within Me. This is very deep healing work. I also by the way sent you an email. I don’t know if you saw it. With much Love to you this day, dear friend. 💕💖💕

      1. Thank you, Irene. Please don’t overdo on my account. It just is enough for you to have listened to my story. One that will not be written more than likely here on Petals. There are eyes who watch and those eyes would get very upset by that kind of Truth that I wrote you about. Again bless you!

  2. Good morning, sweet Amy 🙂 ❤ Beautiful photo and poem!! ❤ The tree has a very interesting shape. There is so much to see out in nature. A brand new day it is! The sun is shining outside of my window which it hasn't been doing too much of late. The upside of all the rain is that the ground is no longer in a drought. A reason to be thankful for the cloudy days and storms! Since the rain fell before the ground has frozen, it soaked in. I know you will weather the current storm in your emotions and come out the other side sunshine and smiles. 🙂 Love, hugs, and blessings for you! ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Sarah, I really thought it so cool to see a hole like this in this tree which revealed what was behind it. It’s getting colder here and in fact snowed yesterday while I was out and about. This Journey I’ve been on has been really tough and there are times I just want to stop, get off, and run. That is not about to happen so when the Journey is complete I’ll be there. Love and HUGS to you!! 🍂💞

    1. I’m learning in spades that it is not selfish to put myself first. I have known how to do this only to a certain extent but right now I am doing much more of it. I have to in order to regain Solid Ground underneath my feet once again. Much Love to you, Sis, this day. 💋💋

    1. Bless you, Van! I am choosing happiness and I am choosing modalities to get me back to sanity. And the day can’t come too soon for me when it is no longer a “necessity” I interact with certain siblings. BLESS you for your encouragement. Last week was a tough one. I grew up knowing “conditional” love and if I stepped out of those conditions, that “love” would be withdrawn. To have this “unconditional Love” from so many, overwhelms me and brings such humility and gratefulness to my Heart. So Much Love to you this day, dearest friend. 💞🍂🍂💞

    1. Aw, thank you, Neha. As you well know, the “process” that occurs after huge fallouts in a life, will only end when the time comes to end. I wish I had a way to say STOP for a bit so I can catch my breath. In the meantime, I do things to maintain a semblance of happiness in my life. It’s not like I’m just sitting waiting “on God” or for when this “process” ends. I actually know some people like that and then they wonder why they are so ill or miserable. I’m just doing my very best, and that is all I can do. Much Love to you this day! ☺️

    1. As I do, Alok. There are times however, in life when one can be hurt so deeply and happy seems just so far away. There are times to grieve and mourn yet the wise know when enough is enough to paddle again downstream, instead of upstream. Have a great day! 🤗

    1. I have been deep in thought, Nico, much of the time lately. It seems as if my Mother had been the guard at the gate, and in her death that gate came open. The opening revealed deep wounds that had not been addressed and in the seeing, healing has begun. Yet this journey I find myself on is grueling and so very hard. What keeps me going is the knowing, that a day shall come soon I will be whole and I will be free of what had been done to me during my childhood and beyond. Bless you for your encouragement and for your support and for your LOVE. Bless you! 💕😙💕

  3. We do what we can do when we can do it AR….It is part of this crazy process of shedding the old in favor of the new. Glad you are still with us after shedding your skin…May the new you blast forth with joy and peace within. You and hubby have a great holiday!!! Hugs to the 4 leggeds….VK ❤

    1. Aw, thank you, VK. I’m feeling a bit awkward in my “new skin” but soon I know I will adjust. May you and yours have a beautiful holiday! And I will be sure to pass on the hugs to my 4-leggeds. (smile) Much Love to you! 💖

  4. Always a few steps forward with the odd one back Amy. It is so we can ‘feel’ our truth and realise that we are going in the right direction. Testing our ‘waters’ so that we don’t fall into the deep end, though sometimes it feels like it ❤
    Big hugs kind lady, and I know you are going well by what you said above, your asking for time out. That is the biggest signal that you are doing 'you', and that my friend is the whole purpose of this journey ❤
    Just be gentle on yourself, even though there are some bumps on this healing path for 'seeing' within, it will shine brighter as time goes by ❤

    1. How you made me smile, Mark. “so that we don’t fall into the deep end, though sometimes it feels like it” … Oh yeah, RELATE. Last week was a tough one yet … I found a wound that was hiding for more then 50 years. I’m still healing this wound. It feels so relieved as I make sure I am feeding it Light Food instead of hate. And for me … I know all about self-Love but that too is growing as I realize doing certain things is not selfish (as I was taught). Freeing and delightful I am becoming more and more as I say goodbye to that which was not mine to keep. Bless you for “reporting” that you see the progress. Sometimes up close and personal I don’t see it. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for walking this Journey with me. BIG HUGS!!! 🤗

  5. Oh, Amy, we all love you and we are happy that we have become friends with you. I am glad that your blogging community is able to give you such hold in difficult times…. and I totally hear you. I experienced the same.
    All of those up and downs. Sometimes I think we have those ups in order to be ready and strengthened when life peels another layer from our soul that frees another demon from our past. But we defeat them all… don’t we? 💖

    1. Erika, I do not know what I would do without WP and all who have formed a Loving Circle around me. It is such a different experience from that of bio “family” that at times it overwhelms me. I am so so grateful to you and all those who see me for who I am and when I stumble are there to hold me up. I am SO Blessed! Last week was horrid yet it produced fruit in revealing a wound hidden for more then 50 years. I’m still dealing with it but the initial shock has worn off, thank goodness. And yes we do defeat all that which wasn’t even ours to own. I’m so proud of the both of us!! BIG HUGS!!! 🤗🍂🤗

      1. We are all souls on a search and we are constantly finding. I think this is one thing that connects us all by the feeling and which makes us stick together when times get rough for the one or the other. Yes, we can be so proud of how far we have come already and that we don’t turn away anymore and face life and the past. I appreciate you very much, dear Amy 💖

    1. Ya think perhaps life is just overdoing it a wee bit concerning me? Hmmmm …. This is where the strong from the weak are separated. I have my Faith shoes on and doing all I know to do to keep my spirits up. I’m hanging, Dan. 😜🤗

  6. Power to all the love and healing created here. I feel the need to honor my journey with more personal time too. I have felt like I need to take a complete break from everything. And here I am looking for my beloved blogging friends and I might do a post, will see 🙂

    1. Balance is key, Pragalbha. When I have so many followers it gets very challenging to keep the personal touch which I will not let go of. However, the amount of comments at times does overwhelm me and especially during this phase of my life, I must take out time for me. As in quiet. No writing, no reading, no movies, no conversation and lots of time either knitting or being out in a forest. The cherished friends I have met through blogging has been amazing yet if we don’t time for us, we will not be good for either us or anyone else. Peace to you this day! ☺️

  7. So sorry to hear that you’ve been down but as usual, you’ve pulled through. Always amazing how you are always so positive, and that shines through your photography. Intention to achieve is a powerful thing. When you got the heart to do something, you do it 😊 Wishing you well into winter and take care 😊

    1. Yes, Mabel, intention is extremely powerful. That one “word” can and will change your life. Winter is not here yet, thank goodness. I’m still enjoying the crispness of Fall. And about me being amazing … I will not allow the dark to destroy me. For too many years it did. Now I fight back with everything I have! I am light as we all are. When that is recalled and acted upon, our very lives become Love. 💞

      1. ‘I am light as we all are…our lives become love’ Such a powerful phrase, Amy. You are one strong light to be reckoned with. Out of the darkness, into the light. Stay strong, enjoy the outdoors, and above all, take care ❤

    1. Oh, YellowCable, I really don’t know what to say other than I am really deeply grateful for what you just said to me. I agree with you that this is an extremely difficult situation to be in yet I am determined to do my very best not to allow the heart crushing pain to get the better of me. Bless you from the bottom of my Heart for being so kind. Much love to you today. 💕💖💕

    1. Always, Marissa. Always whenever I can. When your Heart has been as crushed as mine to stay high with optimism is extremely difficult. If you have not walked in my shoes you really don’t understand because I know I did not. I never knew there was pain like this in existence. In order to survive I reach for happy by doing everything I can to make that possible. Much Love to you. 💖

    1. Thank you for noticing the symbolism with my picture, Alexander. I’ve experienced many wounds from my childhood that one by one are being healed by me. To change something you were taught that is not of Love and to change that into Love, is far from easy. Yet I stand before you saying I am doing it. Much Love to you this day! 💞

    1. And you humble me, Michele. I’ve come to learn what to value in life. And it’s not “stuff”. (although my camera is the exception …. smiling) Happy Thanksgiving to you, dear friend. Peace to you. 🕊💞🦃
