I would also like to thank all of you who have supported me and wished me well in various ways and kept me in your thoughts, prayers, and positive visualizations. I can feel all of that and I really appreciate you and your efforts!

Stream of consciousness on how I’ve been:
Recovering, healing, resting, keeping house
Self-care, twice weekly psychotherapy for bipolar 2 and PTSD. Newly diagnosed with binge eating disorder (had it all my life, just dealing with it in therapy now, on the very kind suggestion of a friend).
Gained a lot of weight living with my friend and his daughter, but am making progress in shedding those excess pounds. (I may appear heavier when you see me, depending on when you see me!)
Revisioning my future as an artist and figuring out what to do next. In my 20s I wanted to be a singer-songwriter, in my 30s I wanted to be a writer, and in my 40s, I wanted to be a healer. So in my 40s I attracted a lot of major crises so I could heal myself then share what worked for me. I believe my 50s will be to show what I’ve learned, and become the artist I was fully meant to be. Whatever THAT is, HA!!!!

More soon…

Be good to yourself 🙂

In art, spirit, and community,

New YouTube Video! “Healing Artists: Don’t Wait to Share…”

Healing Artists: Don’t Wait to Share Until You’re Doing What You “Should” Be Doing
Video link: https://youtu.be/vLixZL_gy28
Multi-media artist Cassendre Xavier shares her struggle with bipolar and posttraumatic stress disorders, and returns to share what she actually is doing, not what she feels she should be doing.
When we share what we actually are doing, we learn to speak to ourselves with compassion, and to view our actions without judgment.

Survivor’s Corner: You’re Still a Warrior

The same strength and courage you had within you to survive through the past, you still have within you to thrive in the present. They haven’t gone anywhere. You’re still that same warrior. Remember and tap into your strength and why you use it.

You Always Have Something

Who you are is what you do with what you have. And you always have something; something to appreciate, something to enjoy, something to do, and something to share.

Fear as Motivator

Let it be alright if you find you that fear is your greatest motivator. Humyns are wired that way. Fear of death motivates us to do healthier things, and fear of failure motivates us to work on our goals. We are not as effectively moved by merely the possibility of joy.

Healthy Corn Bread Recipe

Jiffy mix is convenient but has white sugar and lots of lard. Here’s my modification I baked today. You can tweak it to your liking, substitute flours (oat or brown rice flours if you don’t want wheat) or sweeteners. Add more honey if you want it sweeter, more yogurt for moister, more baking powder and/or egg white for fluffier, and enjoy!
Healthy Corn Bread Recipe
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Ingredients: Dry
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 can corn (12 oz vacuum packed), drained
Ingredients: Liquid
1 1/2 cups honey
2 eggs
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup milk of your choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1 1/2 cups lowfat plain yogurt
Blend ingredients. Bake in greased and floured baking dish for 40 minutes until knife or toothpick comes out dry.
