Settling into Stage 5

Not quite like a comfy chair but settling in nonetheless. I can say that I really feel good. Really good. I’m happier. I’m more settled and less anxious. I’m enjoying my moments.

The final phase of this model is to let go of your need for the loss and to move on with your life. Sadness will lessen greatly, and new interests will gradually occupy your thoughts more and more, crowding out the misery and desolation. The final stage is when you “pull your life back together”.

New interests, as a matter of fact my bf and I were talking and he mentioned he wanted to take a cooking class. I said “Oooh! I would do it with you!” He liked that idea so we are going to take a cooking class as soon as he signs us up for it lol. For me it isn’t such a new interest but a rekindling of an old one. I’m no chef by any means but I can come up with the occasional meal. Cooking and baking are 2 things I used to love to do. They were my calming things. I was in my happy place… just me, my music, a glass of wine and a recipe to (not always) follow.

I feel like I am in the process of pulling my life back together… more of the altars are getting acclimated here and are coming out of hiding to check out the new place. And they are less anxious as well! I’m more able to live in the NOW.

Until next time… Blessed Be… Saila
