You have the power to get out of the well one step at a time
The other day while doing some research I came across this
fable which really spoke to my heart.
The Farmer’s Donkey
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal
cried piteously for hours as the
farmer tried to figure out a way to get him
out. Finally he decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and
the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn’t
worth it to try and get the donkey out.
So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and help him cover up the well.
With a warm heart I welcome in 2016.
The year 2015 was a year filled with change and challenges
for me. I founded Chrysalis Healing & Coaching in the spring. A time for
new beginnings for me and with enthusiasm I embraced the challenges of owning a
Along with those
challenges 2015 also brought some personal challenges from my past that I had not
completely dealt with.
For the first time in my life I was in severe physical pain.
I could barely walk the pain in my left
hip and leg was so extreme.
My body is tired, I am tired. Tired of all the pain I have endured in my life. Pain from my past. Deep physical and emotional pain stored away deeply hidden and rooted in my body.
I am tired of hiding, protecting and holding on to my past. I am tired of all the abuse I endured in my life- the physical, the emotional and the sexual. I am tired of blaming and holding myself responsible for all the abuse. I am tired of feeling ashamed of myself. I am tired of hiding behind masks.
I am tired of playing the victim role.
" Is what you are doing with your life worth the one life you have?"
A few weeks ago I attended a social networking event where the guest speaker Theresa Laurico asked us a very powerful and thought provoking question- "Is what you are doing with
your life worth the one life you have?"...
I had a chance to revisit this question recently when I was saddened to find out that a friend of mine's beloved pet had just passed away. She had just recently retired a few months ago and her pet was her life.

Making a change in your life can be difficult, and stressful.
I was working in a corporate world mainly in the financial industry for 23 years when I knew I had to make a major change in my life. I was unhappy, extremely bored, frustrated and unfulfilled. I felt there was something lacking in my life.
When I was young and graduated from high school I did not know what I wanted out of life so
I got a job in the corporate world. Twenty three years later I was miserable and wanted something more meaningful out of life.
