That day while walking down that road, I felt something for the very first time in my life. This journey was hard and often upsetting, but it was my choice.
Before we can ‘begin,’ we must first know where we are at. This is the very first human condition Rosie will explore; Surrendering to what was and what is before we can go forward with what we will be.
The Tin Roof
Here is a poem that is as much about missing someone and not being able to reassure them of your love, as it is about surrendering to something you cannot control, but loving them anyway.
Rosie Goes to Ukraine: I’m on my way
If someone had told me 3 weeks ago that I would soon be boarding a plane and heading North to Ukraine, I’d probably laugh. But that’s it, I’m not going to laugh anymore because I am discovering that since starting Rosie Goes – the most incredulous things happen at exactly the right time, taking me on a journey with a very definite purpose – in pursuit of humanKIND.
Jene Frost; Surrendering to ‘what is.’
There would be days that Tish wanted to pretend that none of this had happened and she’d hide from it and immerse herself in another world. She’d go to the mall to ‘window shop,’ walking from one end to the other, over and over again until she knew every shop, every aisle and every sale of ‘everything’ she could not have.
Jene Frost; The power of love
"Though Tish may have felt that she was not enough at the time, or that she could not fix her daughter in the way that she wanted to, she was exactly what Jene needed - somebody next to her."
Jene Frost; Little girl gone
She had a precious little heart,’ says mother Tish. 'She was my little girl and in one night, I witnessed my little girl become an adult.'
When you don’t have a voice
This week my heart goes out to a father. A good father and a good man. This week my heart goes out to all the parents who have been alienated from their children and who are standing on the edge wondering how they can possibly go on without the human beings they love most.
Jene Frost; The day everything changed
Jene was not one to wait around. At the age of fifteen, Jene could think of far more exciting ways to pass time than to sit around a fire watching a chicken cook. Besides, her friend Donna from the next door farm was here. The two girls had had about as much adult talk as their teenager selves could handle. They needed some fun, some speed and some adventure to pass the time.
Jene Frost; Going back to go forward
It’s a peculiar feeling of choosing to go back to a place that holds so many memories, a place that represents your childhood; a sacred place because of how it became such a significant part of your identity and how the events that unfolded there would shape the rest of your life.
Walking the road of ‘acceptance.’
How acceptance' and being aligned with our 'true self' is critical to getting 'unstuck.'
