Healing Journey Continues

Lily of the Valley by (c) Adair Heitmann

I’m continuing on my healing journey and am letting myself be changed by it. I think it’s fundamental to my emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual growth . . . to allow myself to be changed by inescapable realities. Yes, I can change some things and I do. Yet, in life, outside forces can change you and you have to yield to survive and thrive. (Surthive).

Per Webster’s: An example of yield is an orchard producing a lot of fruit. An example of yield is giving someone the right of way while driving. I love both definitions, they ring true.

Here’s a quote to live by:
“It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
-Wendell Berry

Wendell Erdman Berry (born August 5, 1934) is an American novelist, poet, essayist, environmental activist, cultural critic, and farmer.

Creativity and wellness message for today: Yield to your own transmutation of self and listen to your stream sing.

  1. I agree with what you have said so well here. And I would add that the core of a person can and arguably should remain immutable. I need to rely on my strength, perseverance, and optimism, for example, even when outside forces would like to change them. Which is not to say that I can’t learn humility, empathy, etc by dealing with what life throws at me.
