Letters and Postcards and Other Adventures!

(Monday, June 11, 2007)

I've been feeling under the weather and having very, very strange dreams! But tomorrow, in the event that I (hopefully!) feel better, I may have some adventures in mind. Even if they just take place on my new living room floor.

I'm thinking lately of how much I love letters, and how I can't remember the last time I received one. I used to have a pen pal when I was young who lived in California, but it was almost like a phase that we grew out of. I don't know anyone who lives far away...

But writing letters would be therapeutic, I'm sure, in a journal form. My therapist once had me write a letter to my birth father, without the pretext that I was going to send it. I ended up sending it, but what if I chose someone to whom I'd never send the letters?

We used to have to do this exercise when I was in kindergarten or first grade, writing journal entries, sorts of "letters," to the person of our choosing. At first, I wrote to an imaginary girl named "Daphne." Then, I started writing to the "Dolphins" football team. Who knows why! I must share some of those silly entries!

So I wonder, if I wrote letters in a journal, to whom would I write? Do any of you do this? Hmm....

A Month's Lessons.

(Friday, June 08, 2007)

This past month has been one of learning for me. I've been out of class, but I have learned more important things:

How to take pleasure out of each moment in itself. Relax, breathe, and don't wish you were in tomorrow, because of this or that... simply enjoy the "now." This has always been a hard lesson for me.

Find a prayer in even the most drab activities. Folding laundry, doing dishes... each can be a little piece of peace.

The value of caring for a man, learning to place the one you love before yourself constantly. This is something that is even more necessary to every day life now, in marriage, than it was before. Doing the little things for someone makes all the difference in a relationship.

The wedding preparations in their last month or two were absolutely exhausting paired with class, finals, last minute things to do. Taking time to breathe and be absolutely on no schedule, with no obligations, has been heavenly! I promise pictures once I get them uploaded and organized. There are sooo many, and it will be a project in itself!

I'm walking each day, taking my days breath by breath, and taking each moment slowly. It takes practice to live this way.

Until next,

Hello, old friend.

(Tuesday, June 05, 2007)

I have been gone... and now I'm done being gone. I said so last time, but last time, probably immediately after that post, I got swept up in this crazy one-day affair of excitement and joy that goes "poof" before you know it, called a WEDDING!

And now I am settled, in a place of our own. And I'm very, completely here.. and have never been so "here" and happy in my life.

So, hello again.

Until next,
-xo Meg
