In the Midst of Dissociation ~ Day 82 ~ Hope Springs

Eternal. So, didja miss me? lol I’ve been blogging like crazy lately the words are just pouring out and need somewhere to go. I’m glad you’re here reading this. Also for the past 5 nights I have slept like a greedy child grabbing for a treat. Sleep. Delicious elusive sleep I have caught you so.. phhhht!!


I will leave ya’ll tonight with something I got from my IOP group this afternoon. I found it comforting in thinking like the magnificent multiple that I am!

“Happiness feels so close and yet so far away. Perhaps we look to a person for it, or to a job, or to a new winter coat. We deserve happiness, we know. Yet we learn so slowly that happiness can only be found within. The person leaves, the job goes sour; the new coat is quickly out of style. Elusive, all of them.

But the happiness that comes from knowing who we are and how our lives fit in the grand design of the Creator never eludes us. We are one of a kind. And there is no other who can offer to the world of friends just what each of us can. We are needed, and knowing that, really knowing it, brings happiness. 

Before we found this program, we no doubt failed to realize our worth. We can celebrate it now. We can glory in our worth, our specialness, and we can cherish the design. We can cherish our parts and cherish the part each person plays.”

“Combined, we are as one big orchestra. The conductor reads the music and directs the movements. Being in tune with the conductor feels good. I can call it happiness. All I need do is play my part.”

So that is all for today, time for Wrestling with the Kid.

~Blessed Be~
