Sacred Partnering

“Separation leads to disintegration, and joining leads to miracles.” -Marianne Williamson

No one knows the truth of these words from Marianne Williamson as well as someone who should be dead, as I should be.

A New Beginning

CatDog here!!! 5 days ago I shared a story with you called Live In The Moment. I have been going through changes in my life that at times, seemed endless.

But just to show you how fast things can change with positive thinking and living in the moment – let me give you a little insight how that “something good” came around the corner yesterday for me.

The Truth

Does one ever find out if the other person involved cheated? What should be asked? Should you follow your personal feelings about what happened?

Multigenerational Living

My significant other and I are purchasing a large ranch style home (full finished basement) with my Daughters family. They live down stairs, we live upstairs. The design of our upstairs area is what has created some issues as there is no privacy for my significant other and I except in our bedroom and remodeling is out of the question due to finances at this time. In order to keep this short, I am interested in any material others can guide me to or advice from others in a similiar living situation. Maybe one of the design shows would take us on, HA! HA!

What to Do

I am a 68 year old widow. I lost my husband about a year and a half ago. I had been doing okay, but lately I’ve been in a real rut. I am very lonely and very bored. I just can’t seem to find anything that “piques” my interest. I have considered online dating, but have heard about some horror stories there. I volunteer, but it’s here a “dab” and there a “dab.” I feel like I’m headed for that dreaded “dark hole.” Can anyone help me? I keep myself physically active. I would just like someone to share life with.

Love in a Mess

I am beginning to understand that my story is not original, but here it is. I have been married for eight years, with him for 13. We have two young children. We have never had a passionate relationship although historically we have been fantastic friends. The older I have gotten the more I have begun to crave the attention and passion missing between us. Then through the magic of Facebook I met again a friend from high school. We began talking and fell in love.

Houses

We are trying to sell our house and get another one in a different area of the state. Every time we decide on a house to buy, someone else gets their bid in and accepted before we make our offer. Looks like we will have to wait and have my son experience moving during school.

Lost in Limbo

For years, I was depressed but I kept it hidden from everyone I knew. Slowly, things got to be too much for me where it became harder and harder to not let people see that there was something wrong. My oldest sister was so sweet and paid for us (all four of us sisters) to go on a cruise. I thought the time away would be relaxing and I’d come back refreshed but it was like the opposite effect.

Independence Challenged Dramatically

Back in October, 2008, I had reconstructive surgery on my deformed right foot because I couldn’t walk anymore. Little did I know, at the time, how much my life would change because of it. And it’s still not over! The doctor that performed my surgery had said it could take up to a year to heal but I just blew it off thinking I’m healthy, I will heal faster than he thinks.

My mom’s illness…my wake-up call

My mother, who has been healthy all of her life, was recently diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. I thought she was invincible…and that I was too. The sudden realization that even she could get cancer hit me like a ton of bricks. I made an appointment to get a physical…and as soon as I can afford it, I’m going to start taking Chantix, so I can quit smoking. My cholesterol level came back elevated, so now I’m looking at making some changes to my diet. Between taking my mom to appointments and chemo, the last thing I needed was more “changes”…but if I want to live a long healthier life, I need to start now making those changes.
