Reframing Weekends April 04 2016

An in-house counselor has helped me realize that I have been constantly triggered and overwhelmed in my own home.  I used to survive an abusive marriage by fragmenting and compartmentalizing my entire life.  I had been getting "lost" during the less structured weekends.  It is freeing to create a new way of being and existing in my own skin.  I am excited to find new ways to live a fully integrated life.  Now, I am increasingly spending time outside with my kids (collectively and individually), taking care of myself and the apartment, napping, and working in-between.  All of these activities ground me. 

I love this quote from Richard Branson, "I’ve never thought of work as work and play as play.  It’s all living." 

Richard Branson quote - how to live an integrated life.
