Not every day has been comfortable. We have been learning to co-exist together all the time and although we love each other, we still need our space our way. I realized that there were patterns of thought that created more friction and other ways of thinking that kept the peace in tact. Sounds logical, but if you aren't paying attention, the negative thought patterns sneak in and lock the happy thoughts in the basement or under the bed.
It took me about 3 minutes to realize that I needed to make this commitment to myself and sign up. I talked with my husband, he was supportive and encouraging as always and left it up to me.

I use one of my favorite statements when I am feeling present and accepting- "A wizard arrives precisely when she means to." I don't feel stressed or anything, except perfectly happy with where I am and how I arrive there. But every day is so different and sometimes it's hard to find where my wizardly energy is hiding.
I believe we are all born with a bright, creative spark!I think we all know how to color and freely express, sometimes on walls or our sister but watch a little kid with a crayon.

So many people are in positions they have never been in before.

I have always had hope for us and I know that the phrase, 'We are all in this together' has never meant so much.
