Throwback Post: Feel and THEN Release

**THROWBACK POST**

“Release Worry … Release Fear … Release Guilt…..
Welcome Happiness and Peace” -Camilla Downs

Team TLC went for a walk yesterday as the sun was setting and I was reminded of this. Thomas and Lillian helped me remember how nature infuses us with what we need if we just stop and get out there. Thomas didn’t want to come home … said he was having so much fun. This young man was appreciating our walk, just a walk outside, so very much …. Served as a nice little reminder to me!

Release Worry Photo and Quote May 2012

**June 14 2020 Update – Adding a note to represent how I feel about releasing feelings and emotions in 2020 as opposed to 2012, eight years later. I believe we must feel the feelings and emotions first, physically feel them, before there’s any chance of releasing them. I know where I was coming from in this post. I had just begun the journey to getting to know myself, and paying attention to my thoughts. I feel this was a natural step in the progression of where I am today. xoxo

Went to go to bed. Thomas. You crack me up with your randomness.

He has sensory issues, first of all, and has really thick hair. And, does not like nails or hair … anything that requires maintenance! Why do we have to have hair and nails???? He’s serious, too!

Thomas randomness. Found on the kitchen table: One red, squishy octopus. I’m so blessed by Thomas. He brings laughter every single day!
