A Beautiful Life Tapestry

I went and sat with myself to see if I could figure out what was really going on…I knew that the emotions that seemed to be overwhelming were only a symptom…and as usual…when I stop…breath…take the time to be quiet, sit and listen…then the truth will show itself…

Why did I feel so unhappy…I have so much to be grateful for…feel at peace and delightful joy…most of the time…but a couple of days ago…the darkness surrounded and suffocated me until I felt I couldn’t breath… drowning in my own sadness…

I can go along for periods of time without experiencing the flooding of emotions…being overwhelmed…and I forget…

Forget that being an HSP…Highly Sensitive Person…that a huge increase in stimuli causes these “overloads”…and last week were 4 days of unusual events…processing new information and deciding what needed to be done…without a break…

Meeting a old friend of Mr. P (the first person since arriving)…his being a guest 4 days…24/7…cooking…which meant several days of excessive preparation and entertaining in a new environment…not being able to adhere to my accustomed way of being…no wonder I was on empty…

I handled the experiences with finesse… I believe…after all…He did tell Mr. P that I was a “honey”… but I was way to far gone before I realized…and wasn’t able to put the brakes on…

My personal recipe for a quicker recovery is just to “check out” altogether for a day or two…which means mentally as well as physically…

Spending time in Nature is healing energy
Mother Nature nurtures body, mind and soul…

…and so I listened and checked out yesterday

My First Braai

…and

…and there were braai’s and the making of the traditional South Africa Milk Tart…mixed with incredibly awe inspiring South African wines…

ahhh…yes
