Don't Curse the Nurse!

Sharing support with stories & humor


on January 1, 2017

fireblogLast night I set my regrets on fire; a small flame, a single curl of smoke – that’s all it fostered. Like the wagging tongue of a child, it momentarily taunted me, but then I thought, No.

There were too many joyous experiences from 2016 to let a few misgivings piggyback into 2017.

What I learned most from this last  year is that letting go, for me, needs to  be a daily practice. No more holding things in ( or up). It’s not some kind of measure of my character.

Besides, no one’s ever asked me to hold anything in.

    Yes, it is a daily practice but easy to hang onto stuff we need to let go of. Happy New Year!

    I haven’t been able to read well for months & having corrective laser procedure Jan 31 so haven’t been able to keep up with blogs. To write a post in mine I use a dictating app. Having said that, I happen to be a passenger from n the car this morning so have my iPhone practically stuck to my face. The opening lines of the email for this post drew me in; absolutely wonderful! You’ve managed to say so much with relatively few words. Very enjoyable!

    It is so easy to haul around emotional debris that serves us absolutely no purpose. And every now & then something rears up and you think, “wait a minute, I thought I was DONE with this.”

    Good post.
