A series on how my healing had been.


Choosing to take care of myself. Part 1

I know it’s just October, but this year has been choosy so far.

As you know twice a week (with occasional breaks) I have helped my mom volunteer at Cheshire. I am the tech ninja who sets up the audio-visual items we use. That means playing the movies and making sure the speakers are clear sounding. We use our own equipment except for the television. I can’t just trust anybody to do this except for my dad.

I was approached to help them with their equipment and teaching the patients. As my mentor Mary, would say “Don’t take a bigger bite than you can handle.” I was reminded about a chance to contribute to a local hospitality magazine.

I had to ask my mom for advice because I honestly didn’t know the cultural response and if it was right for me. I ended up not going with either offers. In fact, it pushed me towards to blog more. It was something I could handle.

The whole reason I took this trip was to rebuild my confidence and heal from the wounds of my life choices. For a long time, the bad stress took over and I needed to find myself once more.

For my closest friends of mine.


Laughter is a great medicine.

You gave that to me.

A listening ear during my hard times.

You gave that to me too.

I had 2 people give me their blessing to make this trip.

Do whatever it takes bring back our Molly.

So Jaime and Jenny this is for you.

Your words of comfort made me let go of the shame. I am still Molly one and the same.

Stress and Anxiety are my friends and enemies. But I have people hoping and praying that you will not overtake me. Even on my hardest days.
