A hero with a thousand faces

Just found ‘The hero’s journey’ an interview with Joseph Campbell in a second hand store. And then this beautiful vid came along on Facebook. I think you will recognise yourself in it. Enjoy! I have not read ‘The hero with a 1000 faces.’ but I’m going to put it on my list. šŸ™‚ Maybe we could do an online book club? That would be cool? I am happy that I quit. Been working hard these days so I tend to forget about it which is NICE. I fear: pffff, my blood pressure but I am determined to fix it again and again until I’ve figured out what (not) to do. I want: things to be simple but working on not finding them as hard. As I once said: growth and learning opportunities are there where it feels uncomfortable…. well, seems that the hero must indeed enter the cave that she fears. I need: to continue to keep my working schedule, 3-4 hours job applications, 2 hours website and building material for contacting businesses. 1 Hour firm walk or exercise. During the ‘job’ I have done the other 2,5 days I have hurt some muscles in my arms, when I got really frustrated with not able to do something that in my opinion really needed improvement. That’s a problem with keeping outer cool, the energy immediately fires backwards, inside so my muscles froze and the next movement I made something teared or whatever. GP says it’s a muscle knot. It hurts and I dislike it and no, I would not hire me for a standard job either, too much hassle with funny issues. Grrrrrrr… Well, this too shall pass. I take: some Schuessler salts on high blood pressure and Bach remedy on panic. Thank you all for reading my post, commenting, supporting me. I am happy for that. Remembering that about a year ago my journey into sobriety began with realising that things had to change. I knew moderation was not an option so (?) I continued to drink and see what would come up. What came up 1,5 months later was a guy driving me off my bike at a pedestrian crossing. And I realised that my hatred for myself had become so big that it I invited other people to become aggressive towards me. 12 Months later, I’m not ‘there’ yet. But I’m sort of learning to be here now and that is a better option. šŸ™‚ Have a nice day / evening! xx, Feeling

    • FINALLY!!!! šŸ™‚ And enjoying the blood flowing through my veins. We have a saying: the rampart turns the ship…. That’s what you say when somebody is on collision course with reality like I am a lot of the time. It’s a character thing. Something with not liking reality. šŸ˜€ Well. We shall see and it shall be (b)logged.
      Need to look up the Epsom salt, it is not a common thing here. Thanks for the tip. šŸ™‚

  1. Dear Feeling,
    I played golf with a friend this morning. I had to get up early for me, but if it involves fun with a friend, I can do it!
    Now that I can hear, I can listen to youtube words!
    Hero was interesting!
    I like the idea of keeping a schedule for yourself. That is something I am not very good at now that I am retired, but I am working on building it back!
    And good for you for the job applications.
    Happy Tuesday night, or Wed morning to you!

    • Hi Bee, I am happy you liked it. I’m currently reading the book on the movie on the book of a 1000 faces. Yes, that’s a bit complicated but I could get is 2nd hand for almost nothing so I did and then this vid came along and I fell in love with it. šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚
      I believe we have not met in the blogosphere? Do you have your own blog? I would be interested to see. šŸ™‚
      xx, Feeling
