It took me a little while, but now after reading 4 books about peoples stories, I am finally ready to start the therapeutic exercises. I have enrolled in Lisa Manterfields Road Map to Healing Group and have completed the week one questions. And I have done exercise one and two in Jody's book. Both have been really helpful and I'm looking forward to continuing with the exercises and communicating with the other women doing Lisa's group.
I considered posting my response to Jody's exercise one, but I think I will just keep that to myself for now.
Does anyone know of any blogs that are talking about Jody's exercises?
Another book I came across is:
I started reading it and realised that at the moment, I just need to focus on the Lisa's and Jody's work material. Anymore is just overwhelming me.

She wrote this article for the Sydney Morning Herald after a politican used the word "childless" as an insult to one of his opponents. And apparently he hasn't been the only one.

On a personal note, our anniversary weekend was fabulous!! We stayed in a hotel in the city for the night, started with champagne in our room, then to the cocktail bar, then went out for dinner. After dinner we went to some wine bars and walked the strip seeing the sites.
In the morning, we started with champagne for breakfast (!) and then headed to the Pancake Kitchen. After that we did some shopping, lay on the grass by the river for an hour or so, had lunch and then headed home.
We had a great time and we definitely be doing something like that again! A tradition has started!
