Episode Two:The Activation
I come from a very small town with the small town outlook on everything. I have been through a lot as a child. Things that I just found out about a year ago though I have felt them for as long as I can remember. I just found out about the adoption and about the truth about a year ago.

Although, when he starts coming around me more again, I"m a little hesitant yet still open to him because lets face it I always will be. We"re definitely in the twin flame dance. But the emotions I feel when I look into his eyes There"s nothing to explain it. It is felt in a soul level.

As I thought about the reason for my writing, I jotted some lines of introduction—about how I view the topics of these early posts. I Need to See the Big Picture. I like first to see the continent, the country, the province, the state.
Then the road details, the relationship of cities and towns to the whole and to each other have a setting. I find it also interesting to understand the topography of the various regions in relation to the larger geography. I make more meaning of the lesser segments as I relate to the larger. As I relate to daily life in our uncertain and tumultuous times, I need to anchor and nurture my faith in the Creator-Sustainer-Redeemer.
We learn of Him through nature, as well as from the incredible mosaic that takes shape as we contemplate the holy Scriptures. So, in these next posts I share reflections of what helps me anchor to a much larger picture as I strive to make meaning in my day-to-day, hour-to-hour life trek. Wellness and Master Design I am fascinated, I actually stay quite fascinated, to ponder wellness and the underlying concept of well-being—its beauty, its strength, its wholesomeness — all that is included in the very idea.
I am the more fascinated when I consider it in relation to where it came from. I am captivated with its design. One of the mega interests of our times!

Your core beliefs could have a lot to answer for. People will respond to this in a variety of ways, most commonly placing the blame on surface pressures, but it"s actually the way we speak to ourselves about dating that could be the real answer to this query. Self-sabotaging behaviours are usually based on fear and while people adapt these as a means of self-protection, often they can actually prevent dating success rather than guaranteeing it.

The final step towards a"dating win" is the"ambivalent" approach --"one foot in and one foot out of the dating pool," Schilling explained.
So, how do we recognise that we could be self-sabotaging our own dating lives and move out of our own way? Schilling suggests starting by dating yourself can lead to positive relationships in the future.

I think its an extraordinary program that has helped thousands of people with their recovery. My decision to stop attending AA meetings was not one I made overnight, it actually happened without me being aware of it.
