It's been two years. Can you believe that? For two years, I have felt.... stuck. It seemed like every day was a repeat of the one before. I had hopes/dreams/plans for the future, but I wasn't making any headway. It seemed as if I would be stuck in that place forever.
And then it changed.
Really, the change started about a year ago. Words were said that I really heard for the first time (thank you, Mama Jeannie!!!). I started to think. Then, last fall, I started to act. Action led to more thinking, which led to more intentional action, which led to new thinking, etc...
The last piece in this crazy puzzle fell into place right around the new year. Suddenly, the doors opened wide for me. I was no longer stuck at the crossroads in my life. I was no longer trying to wade through a tar pit, sinking more with every step.
It feels good.
Projects are being started (and getting finished!). I am learning to take time for myself (and not feel guilty). I am planning for my future, and it is bright.
So this is my announcement, ladies and gentlemen (if there are any of you left that read this - hi, Fr. Peter!!). I am back, and you better hold on to your hats, because I'm a whole new Barefoot!!!
