Learning so much.

Today I read an article on "instinct" and how to trust your instinct over thought processes.  Then I realized that my instincts were there but most of my life had been so mistrusted by me as a result of having my own father sexually abuse me.  It really did throw off my "instinct meter."
The good news is that I am getting back in touch with my self and my instincts are starting to be recognized and trusted.
Also, having a mother who abandoned me to my fate while living under the same roof did a lot of damage too.  I read a book called:  Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. (Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype).  I did a lot of crying throughout the book as I grieved the facts and recognized the scenarios of the lost little girl who was abandoned.
As for this day itself, I am grateful for all the little things but my body hurts like hell and I need to sort out the mess of papers beside my bed before they take over.  :)
Hugs to all.
