Snowy Sunday

Written by on February 25, 2007 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

It’s snowing again in York, PA, and I’m sick again. Again. Got over the last bit with the stomach flu. Actually felt better for a week and a half maybe, and then last Friday I came down with this, a cold and barely able to breath. Yuck!

I write about taking care of yourself here, in my new community message board, but I go beyond discussing taking care of one physically, to taking a good look at your emotional climate.

We really underestimate this, and I’m beginning to appreciate on a much deeper level just how important it is to protect yourself from unhealthy dynamics. That toxic people are more than just “annoyances”, minor or major, and that’s there’s a real assault on your immune system that can eventually wear it down over time.

I know this is a time for change for me. I’m not sure how this will play out, but I know my world is shifting…and I with it, or perhaps, it’s the other way around.

Doesn’t matter. Not everything revolves around us, but most certainly, our reality is impacted by what we bring to it and allow others to contribute. We don’t always have a choice. There are intrusions and assaults. But where we are empowered to draw the line, I think we should.

On this snowy day, I sit here and look out the window and contemplate the path I will follow. Wherever I go, I go with faith.
