Family reflections

I've spent some time recently reflecting upon my life and where I fit (or not) within my extended family. It's been quite a revelation and I've come to realise what a profound impact it has had upon me and how I behave and react in general to those around me both in my social life and my professional life. Doing the work I do requires (mandated or not) some element of personal therapy. Working with people on an emotional level can be very challenging indeed, and not in ways I'd expected. It's an ongoing journey I'm taking at the moment and I'm feeling stronger daily as a result. Being the youngest in my family, I'm coming to terms with the loneliness I've felt in that position. The frustration and anger are now apparent and certainly make more sense.
I feel so pleased to see a comment from an old blogging friend on my blog from yesterday. I love to see feedback. It's an encouragement to write more.

It's like a mini "The Day After Tomorrow!"

For quite a few years now, I've been saying that we could be in for a cold winter. I didn't this time around and ironically we have had some proper snow this year. I'm just a big kid really, getting excited about snow coming down. A blanket of snow always seems to brighten my mood. It's a relief in the dark and dismal winter months.
I've been going through a time of rediscovering myself in the last few months. There have been some challenging times and I'm thankful to say I've come through it. It been a chance to grow some more, enabling a greater self awareness. It always feels good to find some inner strength and hold onto integrity.
That's about all I can think of to write today. Writing blogs seems to be harder these day.
