Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours. Today's Word : Beyond
START: What is beyond the journey of healing for me? I used to think about that all the time, what is beyond this work I do in healing, in therapy, in writing, my work on the outside?
Will it be my book getting published? will it be a different life for me on the outside of healing on this journey? will their be a new life beyond this path I have been on for many years now?
I am the type of person that see's something ahead, and I want to run to it now - I dont want to wait, I want the goodness now, I see something I dont want to sit in the many hard places to get there.
What I have learned, and especially in the past couple of months is about living in the now, healing in the now, being in the now! I have learned to take each moment and work through it as I am going through it, not trying to move through something so fast to get to where I want to get to.
Yes there is life beyond the healing, but I am not there yet, and when I am there, there is still life beyond that.. it never ends. I have learned that it's important to be in the now, and let the road ahead make it's own path from the work I do in the now.
I have put trust that God knows what is beyond for me, I am taking every day and working in the now - that is what I do have control over.
Being on this path to healing is a journey SO well worth taking, and that is where I am right now in this very moment.
