burning ritual -- letting go of the pain/negativity of 2009 and embracing the blessings of 2010

I did this two years ago and it was transformative -- I feel that it was one of the main reasons that 2008 was such an amazing year for me. 2009 certainly brought me a lot of beauty and joy (and I intend to write about that), but it also brought me pain that cut deeper than any I've felt since I was working through sexual abuse. I am going to move past this; I am going to heal; I am going to have faith and trust again. Writing this out and burning it is my statement to the universe that this pain is not going to remain with me.

the bits that were refusing to burn -- being untouched, being left out of 'family' photos, having the best of me treated with disgust, and not being trans enough.

the last bit, the last burn (I didn't take any of just the ashes).

and looking forward...


I'm so grateful and excited about the incredible, stunning, thrilling, wildly beautiful year ahead.
