All that excessive obsessing and rumination totally takes a toll on you physically and mentally.
On the welcome psychic assault of reading literature about becoming, or not becoming, a mother.
"I don't think we've ever been this close to abortion becoming illegal."
The gift of challenges and change, even those I didn't choose, is that they continue to give me opportunities to practice being thoughtful in my responses and stay poised for all that is possible.
I know that if am poised for possibilities, I can be the creative individual I was born to be. Now I look for patterns and connections and allow myself to recognize the potential in situations.
