--One Wish-- #augustbreak2017  Wellness and no pain. The theme of the Summer has become mending my body. I am using my word of  the year, courage, in spades. Blog Post today on Shalavee.com gives further details. Link in profile. .  Today, I am off to have sinus surgery known as septoplasty. Apparently a deviated septum is to blame for chronic sinusitis. Why did no one figure this out years ago?  I'm not allowed to eat or drink anything until my surgery which is this afternoon. Sigh. If the colonoscopy taught me anything, it was how to fast. .  And........ Today is the 1000th post on my blog. Which is a thing 6 years later. I publish three times weekly on thoughts of life and struggle and rediscovering myself. And living creatively. .  #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #scribbles #writesofig #littlemomentsofmylife  #healing
--Glass-- #augustbreak2017 .  The Gettysburg visitor center bustling with people from all over the world and huge windows overlooking beautiful landscaping. My camera lense greedily grabbing ever moment I could to document our time together. .  On the blog today, 25 year old Crazy Brain. Some of us made silly crazy choices 25 years ago. Good news was, they didn't ruin us and we rechose for this life now. These children are my Mulligan. Link in my profile to Shalavee.com .

--Where I Live-- #augustbreak2017 .  This is where I create. My art room for which I bought a slightly pricey air conditioner to keep cool and keep up with art this Summer. My Creativity is where I find I truly live. There and within this IG community. .  On Wednesday I sat there and wrote three blog posts in a row. Three days in a row this week, I am sharing on the blog the story of my self doubt storm, my self-bullying bust, and how I am endeavoring to build a fortress against the zombie thoughts that want to eat my brains.

. Golden -- #augustbreak2017 .  Today on the blog, My childhood trauma causes my debilitating doubt. How my doubt storm started in my head this Summer. A snapshot of me in the middle when it was hard. Tomorrow my discovery. And Friday I move on. Link in my profile to a process, a place that may be familiar to you. . "All in all it's a beautiful day When I wake up all alone I cannot help but run away Now I'm afraid that it's all in my head  Don't you know that it's all in your head  So you rolled the dice Melt the fire burn the ice  Find the girl with yellow eyes and go and break her heart" --Rayland Baxter-- .  My only outside cat Mrs Cheesewheat.  She is feral and sweet,  long haired tortie whose golden eyes greet me every morning at the back door. I recognize her being like she's me.  #catsofinstagram #taleswithfriends #lyrics #mywisdomlessons #selfdevelopment #tortiesdoitbetter
Visions of what might be. A Glimmer of hope, a Glimmer of what you want to be. On my blog, I ponder glimmer, how Social Media is a good thing, and my sixth year blogaversary. Link in my profile.  Tomorrow, I fill every day this week with storytelling on the blog. My story of crashing and burning this Summer, of feeling like poop about myself, busting myself for self-bullying, and making a new plan. Stay tuned, subscribe to my posts on Shalavee.com, and I'll be back to tell you what you're missing.  #ontheblog #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #tomatopatch #mywisdomlessons
What if you could cast a magic spell on yourself and feel, nay know, you were destined for a future of fulfillment and purpose.  Put some lipstick on and strike a pose knowing you were the star of your show and your choices would be the right ones, ones that the world would need you to make. .  My piece on the blog today is called Glimmer. Your life is partly what you do and partly how you think you are doing it. What if you caught sight of the future you, a peek into the secret future garden of your life and it was glorious?

I looked up and I could smell the fresh almost lemony scent of this one magnolia blossom hanging low in the air of the porch. A last late but hopeful flower .  I'm reminded today that saying I CAN means HOPE for something to happen. And saying I CAN'T means that it won't and I'll not try and I'll feel hopeless. A flimsy little switch, a slight of mind that keeps even the strongest bravest people helpless. .  Today I just went ahead and did. And decided that all that overwhelm that I usually so contentedly throw at myself could have a seat for a few minutes and stare blankly into space while I made stuff happen and whipped up some hope.  Tell me all the nice things you did for yourself today. What nice words did you say to you today? What did you realize you could do? .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #magnolia #momentsofstillness #momentslikethese #littlestoriesofmylife #soulful_moments
On my blog today, a reposted favorite, a short post On Being My Own Hero and Impressng Myself. Inspiration is everywhere. Grab it while it's going by. Link in my profile. . "Today I need to do things that make me uncomfortable, that I’m avoiding doing. But I also know that given a chance, they may become things I truly enjoy doing. They may lead me to the edges where I can happily stop and not wonder what else. They may lead me to places I never foresaw going and are my favorite places in the future. They may even lead me to connecting with my new favorite people. I just have to start with impressing myself. And allowing for the little unexpected, un-perfect, and exciting moments to unfold." .  May you find inspiration today for your journey.  #fionamarieprach #shalavee #mywisdomlessons #savouringhappiness #taleswithfriends #slowliving #nothingsordinary #ontheblog
My post today on my blog Shalavee is on the lessons I've learned from Shame. That sometimes the hardest moments can give you the biggest gifts. An excerpt : "I’d asked for this. I wasn’t worth it. I wasn’t worth loving without hurting, being appreciated for my talents, or worthy of being paid the price of human decency. Except that in each circumstance, I was also not the one acting abhorrent." Surviving these moments has made me who I am and I am not ashamed of them or of myself in their wake. I'm proud. .  Link in my profile to my blog and my honest recollections on how I still rise above what doesn't take me down. .  #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #writerslife #writingtoheal #selfdevelopment #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #shame
My Summer has been nice yet an underlying theme of self-care has been occupying my mind. I followed the breadcrumbs to find some better doctors. And today, I'm getting an injection in my owey SI joint. .  Grateful to these new doctors and their kindnesses. Looking forward to feeling less pain . Looking forward to feeling Hope. .  It's so important for my inner girl to know I love her and will take of her. Self care starts there knowing that. Next month is my sinus surgery. That'll be a little scarier.  #zinnias #selfcare #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #hope
Our lives are as good as we perceive them to be. But if my plate is always half empty, I'm trapped in a perpetual state of displeasure. My perception is creating my reality. .  From my blog post today titled, You're Living the Good Life if You Think You Are : "But honestly, life is filled with houses full of inanimate objects and people wrapped up in their own perceived outcomes. We are the ones pumping meaning into our everyday and interaction. What if we had faith the outcome was going to be good? Then we’d manifest it as such. " .  Intentionally focusing today on what is good, nay great and hoping to ignore the rest. Tuna salad on Pumpernickel rye toast with summer vegetable salad. And Snapple peach ice tea.off camera. .  #focus #liveintentionally #tunasalad #whatsonmyplateandinmyhead #shalavee #ontheblog taleswithfriends #manifestation #mywisdomlessons #onmyplate
I May Already Be Living the Good Life That I Always Wanted, exclaims the title of my blog post yesterday (link in my bio). I am often aware of my subconscious complaining but things are going pretty damn well if I had the proper perspective. .  Me and my kids are enjoying our Summer Vacation at this moment. This is not something I got to enjoy as a child. Hotel tv watching and fantastic pool with water slide are what we're gifting our children's childhoods. That they may feel abundance and gratitude as they look back on their lives. .  #30daysofwhatmattersmost  is these happy family memories . And I am not only giving them to my children, I'm giving them to myself as well. .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons  #familyvacation #ocmaryland #holidayinnexpress #fionamariepeach
Our family vacation is off to a lovely start. Pool time and hanging out on our balcony chatting. And tv time for kids. .  Shaking the etch-a-sketch with the family at the ocean . Perspective is precious. .  #familyvacation #oceancitymd #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons
You've got to plant it for it to grow. You have to say yes you're willing to tend it. Yes, you will bear the pain when it dies. But you have to plant the idea and cultivate the ground for anything to grow. .  #30daysofwhatmattersmost Saying yes to my soul garden is so very hard sometimes. I fear my ideas won't root. Or they will require more of me than I thought. Yet disregarding my whisperings to plant my seeds to create my future soul garden feels tragically bad. .  For me, by my hand, I plant what I know and hope it will grow.  #garden #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #selfdiscovery #green #tomatoes
#30daysofwhatmattersmost When your dining room has been redecorated yet you neglected to consider recovering the chairs and you stumble across the perfect fabric you have had for years! I win! .  I love my house, my home, and the permission to play here. It is a safe zone where I don't have to please anyone but me. And in the end, that's truly the only person you can please. .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #interiors #interiordesign #designrebels #ecclecticdesign
#30daysofwhatmattersmost On my blog today I ask  Do You Have a Reliable Dialogue with You? I suspected and confirmed that I did not have one with myself. And i describe the conflict as this: . "My child wanted to be free to play. My parent wanted her to please others and comply. There was a lot of work and no play and anxieties. My inner child didn’t trust I’d get a proper reward for my efforts as my word to myself was no good." .  Reestablishing self-trust is a daily intention and so very important for my children as well as myself. They need to know I am trustworthy to feel secure and how can I be that if I don't trust myself? .  Link in my profile to my blog at Shalavee.com and at the bottom of this short post, you can press play and hear me reading it aloud! .  #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #mywisdomlessons #selftrust #fionamariepeach #toddlersofinstagrem #selfdevelopment
Holding ourselves back from self expression is a mean thing to do. And so easy to justify in our busy days with so many responsibilities. Today I offer a thoughtful blog post on how and why I can't betray my creative self. . "I might as well stand up and shout out the window, “I’m unworthy !!!”. Of spending time on and with. Of the dreams that I have hidden in my smallest pockets. Of the tender words and thoughts that deserve to be shared so that others may be allowed to say “Ahhh” or “Aha” or “thank you for putting words to how I feel." .  Link to the piece on Shalavee.com titled 'Grabbing the Opportunity to Not Betray Myself' in my profile. I dedicate this post to @peganderson . .  #createeveryday #creativeliving #innerpeace #soul_selfive #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #interiors #ontheblog #catsofinstagram .
Yesterday, what mattered most was my health. My husband and I went to two doctor's appointments for me that I have fought my way to finally make and attend. And then we ate at a Salvadoran restaurant I'd been wanting to go to for years. .  Sometimes you know the next step of self care will require surgery. And you are ready only when you are ready. Some sinus surgery is scheduled for August. And shots to quell my angered SI joints are coming in July. For that one, I requested good drugs. .  #30daysofwhatmattersmost #selfcare #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #salvadoranfood #carneasada #lasdelicias #annapolismaryland
Joining in @michelle_mccartan 's #30daysofwhatmattersmost today to say #play ❗❗❗ I always prioritize playtime outside for my children. Or running in the aisles of big box stores if it's nasty out. It's just good parenting.  But it has become so everlovin' apparent that I too need my playtime prioritized as well. My inner child is glad to do her chores but she better get her recess or she'll get grumpy.  On the blog today, a piece on carving out a Creative place for myself, figuratively and actually.

This is who I am. Equal parts writer and artist. The words free me in such a different way. This past week, I began to write myself out of a funk. On the blog, an honest poetic outpouring of what it feels like to stand smack dab in my way of my becoming. An excerpt here. Follow my link in my profile for the rest of the post. . "This is between me and me. I’m standing in my way. I’m coaxing and cajoling, I’m berating and stating, and still I stand here. And then there’s the little voice that says run while she’s not looking. Pull the band-aid off quickly! Just do it and then over think it. Knuckle down and fake the passion because whatever you are avoiding is usually the one thing you truly need to do." .  #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #shalavee #writer #craftroom #blogger liveauthentic #thehereandnow
