I am in a stage of refining my life right now on so many levels.

Healthwise, my biological dad just informed me he’s been identified with the gene mutation MTHFR. This could be a big puzzle piece to my own health and maybe a way to help prevent issues for my son or soothe his autism symptoms.

Lovewise, my husband and I know we’ll be family always but that it is best for us to not be a couple at this time. As a child of divorce, this was something I profoundly wanted to avoid in my life. And yet here I am, to face one of my fears and walk through this. In this matter I’m working with Louise Hay’s affirmations, particularly “I forgive us and I set us free.”

Careerwise, I am in a good place and enjoy my work and colleagues. But it’s been a long time since I’ve looked to the future. Asked myself those classic career questions of “where do you want to be in five years? In 10 years?” And so I’m working to figure that out.

and time… wow, that went fast!

For October, I’m writing in conjunction with 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes and each post is written in five minutes flat.
