These days, I notice that as I get more rooted in facts and reality and more together within myself, it tends to affect my surroundings in a big way. Not only in the neat versus messy sense–it carries on into everything: relationships, family, my address book, (!)… Everything becomes cleaner and clearer… a slow process though it is. It feels like it’s impossible to have health in one area and not in the other, as everything is connected and carries on into the other. I’ve noticed that if I really want to feel whole and content, all areas of my life have to be addressed and healed, little by little, one at a time. Once the process starts, it tends to progress naturally….

As I look back on my life from where I’m at right now, and see it all through my new operating system, I can’t help but cringe at so much of what came to pass. Painful memories that seemed like normal life at the time, and I didn’t think twice of it. It is only later, through health, that we come to understand the truth about our lives. And I still have so much to discover…

Judging by my surroundings and my relationships, I’m definitely moving in the right direction. Much is still to be addressed, but I’m beginning to enjoy the process, more and more all the time. Sometimes the pain flows in like a wave, but if I don’t hold on to it, it flows back out to where it came from. A feeling will pass, but facts remain. And feelings are not facts. Thank God. The fact is I’m in a better place than I’ve ever been.
