Slip of the Tongue

Slip of the Tongue By Adriel Luis My glares burn through her. And I’m sure that such actions aren’t foreign to her because the essence of her beauty is, well, the essence of beauty. And in the presence of this higher being, the weakness of my masculinity kicks in, causing me to personify my wannabeContinue Reading

The Self Care You’re Starving For

Is there something more that you need than bubble baths and a smidge of stolen peace?  “She chose to live in a way that supported the tranquility of her soul.” -Caroline Myss, Sacred Contracts I haven’t been able to stop whispering this to myself since I read it. Caroline Myss was referring to the poetContinue Reading

  1. Great question! I’m working towards my needs … a move closer to family and the ocean. It’s taking longer than I wanted, but I’m handling the wait well, most of the time. In the meantime, I’m finally feeling like I’m climbing out of the fog and able to handle the day to day of life again.

      Karen, I’m so proud of you! Both for taking those steps to get you where you’ve wanted to be for so long, and for not putting off life until you get there. Inspiring! That’s the kind of next-level self care I’m talking about. :)

    Hi! I love this quote! I put it on a post-it & added: “a fave quote of Tracy’s”. :) I recently met another woman w/ fibromyalgia, and she lent me a book on OVERCOMING it. While reading, a thought has come to me over & over, which is that I need to finish growing up–to move past the helplessness, etc. (lack of tranquility being applicable, too), that I’ve allowed to consume me for years now! I think my ability to overcome has to do w/ being more aware of the choices I make & the feelings I feel.

    • Tracy Richardson says:

      Hi Brooke!

      WOW. Just…wow. That last line of your comment just went into MY quote book. :) Because you’re absolutely right. Awareness is a key!

  3. Carol says:

    Yes! Yes! Thank you. I know that feeling, but since I’ve been pretty good about self-care (at least when I’m at home), it has felt really self-indulgent to want more. But I do want more. Not so sure I know the what yet, but I’m listening.

    I’m so very glad to know I’m not alone.

    Hugs, Tracy. You’ve had a week. But you are so right. Life is really about the little things, which aren’t little, but where we live every day. Thank you for the reminder – and for dwelling with them.

    • Tracy Richardson says:

      Thanks, Carol. Hugs back, and a happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

      (I’ll be giving thanks that everyone is OK at this moment!)
