I wish there was magic (rave) Elle2021

Elle, I'm serious! I wish I could wish all your (and my) troubles away. Yet every tomorrow I get up and there they are again; my troubles. If I could wish your troubles away, I would do that for you, probably before I would even do it for myself.

The process of troubles happened little by little. One day I woke and I had a bunch, because they seem to breed behind my back without my permission. I seem to be doing everything I'm s'posed to be doing. So, what's wrong (with me)??

Define "wrong" for the correct answer.

I wait for folks to tell me what's right and what I should do. Isn't that how the world works? Well, apparently it hasn't been working for me!!

What's "neato" and "keeno" (Beatnik jargon) is that I can change those habituations (habits). If I take the time to look around and study the horizon a little, I can see very clearly what is "right". If I narrow my vision of possible things to do, let's say limit the list to three or maybe five things, I can do those. If I stop grumbling about the troubles of the world, or the state, or next door, long enough to get clarity about my life, I'll discover what to do. I'm at least smart enough to do that.

I intuitively know my troubles that seem so huge to me, are really a fly-speck on time. I can choose to cope or succumb. I choose to cope, and roll back the stuff that is about to roll me over. It'll take time to get it all rolled back. But, guess what? It only took as-long-as-it-took to create it, so "as-long-as-it-takes" to roll it back might be quick(er). But, I'm already started and I'm gonna do it!!!

That's the difference. I trust myself and my process (not somebody elses) has already started.

Our Therapy is our process, not belonging to our therapist. We get to make out of it what we wish and want. So, we do wish our troubles away, slowly!!!
