Some New Ideas for You to Consider

I am living my life with contentment and remain grateful every day that my inner and outer self continue to strengthen and emerge as valid and open to happiness. I continue to learn, question, reflect, and self-actualise. I believe that my searching for peace and growth, always with as much honesty as I could muster, was a pathway pointing a way for me to grow and become open to happiness. I would like to share the pathways, roads, lanes, and side-tracking that I have experienced. And I hope the sharing of my life encounters may encourage you to meet me along the way. As well as a possibly fortnightly cover letter, I propose to choose a topic, with your help, and write a Special Letter to you all say, once a month, or, if significant interest is revealed, once a fortnight. These letters will be a service available to all subscribers. Please send me your ideas about what you would like me to discuss or provide information about.
I completed a doctorate some years ago which dealt with wide-ranging issues covering various takes on ethics and human relationships. Our views and ways of relating to each other and the ways in which individuals, women, men, and children might choose to make decisions impacting their lives, are important issues.
I have co-coordinated, with another leader, groups for women looking at ways to deal with domestic violence, and I have presented, with another colleague, information groups about how to deal with critical incidents. I have interviewed children who have described personal trauma. I was very interested in assisting to organise an international conference wherein issues in adoption from within and outside Australia were discussed.
I have also written about and worked within related wide-ranging organisations which dealt with other impactful life challenges and further dealt with issues within both loving and hostile relationships. I have discussed and mediated with various people, the complicated and intimate issues of death, life, loss, and grief. I have worked with people with a view of them working towards getting to the internal mindsets he or she or they wanted to be in.
I continue to help people consider how they might look forward towards to the person they want to be, emotionally, psychologically, and autonomously. Autonomy or self-direction in behaviour can be achieved even if the steps taken are hard-won.
My world has included the early death of loved ones. My husband has shared those losses with me. He and I have supported each other throughout those tragedies and together have determined that we can and will work towards “getting there”. I treat every day as a time to integrate the separate losses of my loved child and, later, my dear grandson into everyday-accepting life. We are fortunate to have our daughter, her partner, and their now-adult son, our grandson now at university, to share our lives.
I live in beautiful Adelaide, Australia, in our light and comfortable home. We like to travel within Australia and overseas. We have enjoyed Alice Springs, Uluru, the Olgas, Katherine Gorge, through to Darwin, and over to the top of Queensland to Cooktown. We have eaten oysters off the rocks and traveled by four-wheel drive and tent/swag camping there and back home again.
I am looking forward to continuing to share my life choices, thoughts, and experiences with you and will be delighted to know that you are here with me in the future. Don’t forget, send your ideas to me about the topics you would like to read about.
Love to you all as you work towards being happy and contented with yourselves
From
Merrylyn
