In Memorium To Frank - My Beloved Best Friend

Beloved, I miss you.

I see you've been missing me too, otherwise, you wouldn't be so everpresent in my mind.
Lately, in quiet moments I hear your sweet voice and your beautiful infectious laugh.  Our first years together were of such pure bliss.

Memories of you.and of our times together have been with me these last few days making me long for you smiles your embrace. I can even hear what you're saying at seeing me lnk this music video and seeing me publishing this post. You would protest through very funny sarcastic remarks.

Thank you for choosing to protect me every moment of every day we were together and you were alive. My beloved firefighter hero... I love you!

I will continue to love you forever.

13 Things I Know To Be True - Part 2

I'm not perfect
No one is
We're a work in progress
The journey's on-going
Negativity is toxic
It destroys all,
even people you love
Forgiveness frees
Compassion heals
God exists
God is love and
God loves me
and I do too

Very few things take my breath away. Tonight as MOMA was about to close, I walked quickly to visit my favorite painting before leaving - Modigliani's Red Nude.(see painting at the end, in the expanded post). Just as I was about to enter the Modigliani section I came face to face with a beautiful painting which forced me to stop and look.  It's entitled Electric Lamp by Giaccomo Balla

Yesterday I was judged and made to feel that I was all kinds of wrong and unworthy of anyone's time, consideration or professional courtesy  by one of my coaches. What he found wrong with me was that:

I "mother" people  ['cause being kind and thoughtful was wrong]
I worry too much  [asking that you text when you're running late or a no show is wrong] 
I say "I'm sorry" too much  [so next time I step on you I'll say something else]
I allowed myself to grieve for far too long  [Wow! I didn't know grief had a timeline]
I didn't have skin cancer in 2008  it' all in your head [So I guess the biopsy & subsequent treatment I endured was all a fake huh?]
I needed to explain why I took a job where I sat all day instead a lower paying one where I was more active.    [Seriously???  Do you not realize you're my employee]
I only need to look at myself in the mirror to see what my problem is…"  [This negative mantra has come up in our last 2 calls as well.]
There was 1 more thing I was being "wrong" about, but by then I'd begun to emotionally shut down.

Oh yeah, the last and 9th judgment was that I "shut down" when I'm being challenged. How about that. I shut up and shut down when I'm being judged, shamed, insulted and rejected for where I currently am in my process.  

So if you stumble onto this post, because you're trying to figure out how to find a good coach. the next post will show you what a good one really is  Otherwise you can continue reading this post and learn how to stay away from a crazy one from day 1.
