This past week we began the work of floating-the-bubbles-up to the living-level. Over the next few weeks, we will further sort and reduce remaining “easy” categories, prior to home-integration. Since we’ve befriended, reduced, contained, floated-up, and integrated “easy” contents from my 2007-2009 FTD-life-trauma, we will also be able to make some headway through the family estate contents I inherited November 13, 2013, as part of this 3-month project.
The success of our progress has not been without pain. This work has been extremely difficult emotionally. Some days, I have called myself walking-with-wound-open; Like a blood-letting, I feel the heart-ache of my grief and require a lot of rest, as if I am ill. Being mid-process is challenging, because I cannot see the end yet. The work has required me to reduce my outside-the-home commitments and become like a hermit.
In recent days, I have re-framed my understanding of my life-story to have so far three main phases: My life, age 0-34; My FTD-life-trauma, age 35-37; My resurrection, recovery & renewal, age 38-present.
Moving forward with a listening heart,
vision, inquiry, and action,
