Wild Peony VIII – IV

Tomorrow when the paint at the bottom dries, I can take the final photo of this and call it finitti, so you are the first to know! Hooray! I like the way it turned out — do you?

Yesterday was very stressful. I didn’t sleep well the night before because the upstairs neighbors were fighting and I kept contemplating calling 911. Ended up calling Child Protective Services and now I know to call non-emergency police and ask for a child welfare check. Argh. Sigh. Physical therapy went well, and I received some exercises which I will do when I finish blogging today.

Counseling went well today. We talked about the clean heart work I’ve been doing and how it makes me feel vulnerable and fragile deep down. But we realized while processing that long ago I began work on both self confidence and boundaries between compassion for others and self love. You see I used to have too much for others and zero for myself and kept burning myself out. No good. Now I have a better balance but even so deep down I’m finding deeper need for feelings of self compassion and feelings of goodness that I’ve never accepted for myself. It is a longgg process. Very old self doubt in there. So it was a good session.

I woke up exhausted and still feel very tired. Rested before counseling and post pt exercises am headed back to bed. I overdid it on Wednesday and yesterday’s stress didn’t help any. So I’m recharging. Yawn.

But it was fun to paint a bit. 🙂 Happy Friday and Easter Weekend!
