Yes...this is the week I decided to take my journal into the shower with me. I did not have any free time to work in the journal otherwise...and I had already decided I would do the shower challenge this week last week...so that was my goal. I made 2 videos of what happened. The first one here is the longer version....where you can hear everything I say and the entire process (minus my nudity!).....if you don't have approximately 7 minutes to spare...you can choose the second video which is a condensed version and only about 2-1/2 minutes...but you won't hear much of what I have to say. The choice is yours. I am happy with the results and of myself this week!!
the shorter slightly different version....

If subtitles appear to be missing: Click on the triangle at the bottom right of the video, and make sure that CC is turned on. Russian animation from 2006. "Kolobok" is a traditional East Slavic fairy tale very similar to "The Gingerbread Man". This film expands on it a little. Our protagonist lives a life of estrangement.

I have three of wishes.....
1. I wish to nurture my heart. I have realized over the past week I do not demand proper care of it from others or myself. This is unacceptable and has to change. So I wish to learn to nurture it as the fragile living, feeling, organ it is...and learn to command the same treatment from others who reportedly love me.
2. I wish to nurture my financial situation. I need to get out of credit card debt. As a single mom of an autistic son, I was only able to work part-time when I originally moved back here to my home state 3 years ago to be closer to my family because of divorce. I quickly depleted my savings and had to charge many things for a few years to basically make up the difference in the other half of income I was not making during that time. I work from home and also home-school my son....and I make a lot less now than I did before...though I have finally started to work full-time again from home. BUT the credit card debt is just suffocating me...us. I want and need to get out from under it as the remaining money I make would be MORE than sufficient to have a good life and actually even save money. Blah, blah, blah...I am sure many are in similar situations now even due to the economy. Without going into all sorts of details and/or feeling sorry for me crap......I just need to improve my INcome situation to make enough extra to continue to pay off my credit card debt easily so we can survive on our own with the remaining money each month. It is touch and go again this month....
3. I wish to nurture truth. I am all about truth. I always have been. It bothers me to see others who do not hold this value as highly as I do. It is very disturbing to find people online who in the end are not who they try to appear to be. I am pretty much what you see is what you get and upfront and straightforward about who I am. I don't wish to play head games with myself or others. I wish to be surrounded by truth and truth-loving people.
