Reaching For Cloud Nine

There is power in purposeful positiveness: find the gems buried in the dirt of the situation and move down the road you choose. ~ Erica Kosal

I just came off a cleanse, I didn't make the full 90 days but I'm thankful that I did 75 days.  I learned a great deal about myself. One, I am capable of giving up TV and social media (did I miss it?).  I did miss social media, TV not so much.  I can eat healthy and enjoy it, I will stay eating good food with a treat here and there.

I was able to clean and organize my home to something I can now enjoy.  Also, I can maintain it by taking 15-30 minutes per day.  I enjoyed relaxing, blogging and going to bed early.  All good for me, all something my body and soul needed to heal from this past year.

I am going to do this on a smaller scale, like choose a day a week or every second week that I just take a day for me without the noise to fill me.  Than I will be able to feel and hear what I need.

I did something silly last night, I was cleaning out my email box and all the folders.  Of course I have one for my 'D', I allowed myself to read those early emails when he and I were so happy together. That was foolish of me, it just brought up all the heart break again.  I was not prepared for that, especially since Sunday November 4th will be one year when I realized my David more than liked me.

I was on cloud nine, sometimes I wonder if cloud nine is worth the fall?

  1. Launna,
    logical that it's worth going through ups and downs!
    We need to know how to deal with situations, you and 'D' had many unforgettable moments like everything in life, the good times pass. But others are good times!
    Take one day at a time.
    Take care of yourself.

  2. Thank you Jaqueline for the comment... I am working on taking care of myself.. I will get there<3

  3. What a lovely and uplifting post! Hugs and kisses from Finland, take care! <3 :)

  4. Thank you Susanna... your posts are very uplifting.. I love your blog:)

  5. You have realised a lot Launna-good for you. I think quiet time without the noise can be so healing in of itself and gives us the chance to listen and just be, then we can connect with where we are at, hear our own voice and God's.

    I get where you are coming from with reading the emails, sometimes we get taken aback at the strength of feeling which hits us again.

    Take care.

  6. Thank you Behind the Smile... I opened up a dam, I am not sure I can shut... It took me so long to bottle those feelings up and now they are over flowing again... I wish I hadn't read them.

  7. Anytime we can learn something from an experience and use that knowledge to improve ourselves or our lives, it's a good thing. It sounds like you've done just that with your cleanse.

  8. Thank you Daisy, I am working hard to remember what I learned and stay with those feelings:)

  9. Congratulations on honoring and valuing yourself. Caring for ourselves is something that helps us and the world. Beautiful!!!

  10. Thank you Suzanne... I am always trying to value myself more... it's not always easy:)
