New Learning Experiences

I'm sure you agree that life is a constant, changing path to travel. As a matter of fact, we crave changes. It's true. Think of the times you feel you're in a may decide to look up new recipes in order to change the boredom of the same meals, or go shopping for new spring clothes. Two of my sisters have been brave enough to enter the world of learning in order to re-enter the work force. Yes, change is scary and requires a great deal of bravery but we were created to challenge ourselves. If we think we can just stay put and shield ourselves from change we soon discover that our whole entire life starts to shut down and close in on itself.....that's called Depression. I have learned in the past year and a half that Depression exacts a high price and has a worse affect on us than stress. Is it easy to push thru the Depression???....are you kidding?? NO!But if we do not, then slowly we shrivel into very unhealthy human beings.
Tonight I begin a 12 week GriefShare course, with a group of people I've never met before. I want to run away in panic, I want to throw up an iron curtain to protect my heart from further hurt.....but I will never be whole again if I follow that path. It's time to's time to walk in joy's time.

Faye, I admire you SO much. I admire how you've been such a nurturer and support for so many people. You give and give and give. And even in your darkest hour, you still were the comforter. I hope this course gives you the foundation and tools to learn to love and enjoy life. Not to forget, but to get beyond and to laugh from the utter bottom of your heart again.
I can imagine how scary it will be to meet new people, to reveal your most private emotions to these perfect strangers. But you have one thing in common, and if you stand on that .. I can imagine some true friendships and a great support system you can attain.

Love you, sis!
