It was there all along

Funny how the mind thinks that it can protect you by not allowing the pieces of a puzzle to be seen as a whole

Once connected it almost seems incredulous that one could not see it before

It was all there

For many years

It was not hidden from thought as one might suppose


It was hidden from meaning

Events seen separately for years

Each creating their own brand of misery

Were a smokescreen

A haze….fog in my brain

To disconnect truth

To prevent

The thinking mind

The feeling heart

The bleeding soul

From feeling the betrayal

The worst kind of betrayal

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. I’ve thought: why didn’t I see that before? Now I realize the pieces come together when we are ready. I was thinking of the song: “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone…..” It might take some time to adjust to the new view, but the bright sunshiny day and blue skies are the way! https://youtu.be/FscIgtDJFXg


    1. Yes, JoAnne…divine timing 🙂 You will see an amazing example of this at the end of the series on Sunday!! It all still blows my mind a bit…but then I stop and say…of course it is all perfect!! And how much do I love that you had a song in your head too!! I was in 6th grade when that song came out and I can remember my teacher singing it one morning with the radio…it was the first time I had heard it and I instantly loved it!! Can’t hear that song without getting a smile on my face!! Much love to you my friend ♡♡♡ I hope all is super!!


    1. Oh, you dear soul!! I send you so much love…and I send my arms to wrap you in a super sized hug!!! If this too was your experience I cry with you and I also hold your inner child with love. I urge you to seek help dealing with these feelings that you have. Everybody heals differently and in their own time. If you need me I am here for you…you can email me from my contact page. Much love…and beautiful freedom from the pain ♡♡♡

      1. Not to worry, dear heart. Had lots of help and done lots of healing. Some days though, it just creeps up when you aren’t looking. No one goes through unscathed. Still counting my blessings too.
